GOVERNMENT: North East is neglected

I wonder how many people in this county know that Northumbrian Water was bought out by a Chinese company in 2011.

Also, the fact that due to the green taxes in Britain, electricity costs the iron companies in Britain twice as much for their electricity as the charges in Germany, for instance, and this is the problem for the North East iron industry, both these facts making a huge difference to our workers and their jobs.

Isn’t it time the North East got a fair crack of the whip from our Government, no wonder we have double pneumonia in this neglected part of Great Britain.
