  • More than 300 jobs set to go in Novelis closure

  • Mark,

    So what? Apart from people closely affected, who cares?

    What matters is the macroeconomic data and national employment trends. I’m fed up coming across these poxy little postings about some factory somewhere I’ve never heard of closing down.

    Even debtfree’s posting at 12:34 from the Sun, of all places, is more interesting and relevant.

    You appear to be gloating at other people’s misfortune.

  • QG you miss the point these small closures all add up if 300 people in each area lose a house then it starts to add up

    would you describe yourself as a nimby? because you sound like one, you dont care unless it is in your back yard.

  • QG, I’m sitting in one of the factories mentioned in this post as I write this. IMHO, there is a good reason for this particular post – the company in question are hugely reliant on government spending and, if the defence cuts that look likely are indeed carried out, the 100’s of jobs lost in today’s announcement will become many many thousands. The economy of this area (the two factories sit a few miles either site of Preston) will be literally decimated.

    I’m not tyring to make any particular argument about whether the cuts are necessary or desirable, but rather to illustrate the the local housing market would be hugely due to very heavy reliance on a few key employers. This pattern is true all over the country.

    So let me understand this, for every one that loses their job, you hope they, and their families, each lose their homes.

    Tut tut.
