Peter Mandelson - 'Protectionist of the Month'

Congratulations to fellow-gay Mandy for reminding us once more just how idiooic is the socialism in which he seems to believe. Protecting uncompetitive producers may well be popular with a certain kind of voter, and may even 'work' in the short-term, but I doubt very much if in the longer-term this latest madness by the EU, courtesy of friend Mandy, will serve the genuine interests of European textile producers and clothing manufacturers.
