I am indebted to Nick for this. Apparently our glorious leader is strutting his stuff on the European stage, this time protecting UK employment laws from interference by Johnny Foreigner. Before anyone feels too grateful, they should be aware that Blair is actually trying to STOP the EU from giving workers more rights under the EU constitution.
"We are not prepared to have anything that takes away our ability to make sure our industrial laws in this country remain as flexible as they are now.", Blair told his Downing Street press briefing.
Thanks... for nothing. Over to you.
