Cartoon: The costs of globalisation

Oil refinery protest line workers animated political cartoon © Matt Buck Hack Cartoons

Any clash between the economic interest of citizens and the globalised industrial system (Total oil in this case), is explosive for any elected government. The workers in Lincolnshire are voting this morning on whether to accept a compromise deal brokered yesterday by ACAS and the Unite union.

UPDATED: Noon. The BBC is reporting this unofficial strike is over at the Lindsey Oil refinery.

And the Bank of England has cut interest rates again. High Street reaction is available here.
