We learned recently that Corus (ex-British Steel) and other “free market, risk-taking” manufacturers have begged Brown for taxpayers’ money to bail these profiteers out.  As the “Scunthorpe Telegraph” reported, Corus` conglomerate Tata announced profits of £2.47bn in 6 months to September - up 144%. Meanwhile steel production cuts of 20% were increased to 30% in November. Corus-Tata`s hypocrisy might be thought insufferable.
