    A very interesting post on former FCO (foreign and commonwealth office) employee and former UK ambassador Craig Murray’s blog.

    How UK companies (and others) continue to screw ‘developing’ countries whilst creating big profits for themselves. He is no socialist but gives a very good outline of the ins and outs, plus he asks some questions for which he claims to have no answers. His post begins with Tate and Lyle and their donations to the conservative party.

    The leader of a sugar workers union said: Sweet sugar how bitter you are !!! He was referring to the economical exploitation of the sugar workers at the factories and the plantations, and all the suffering that they went thru and all the peoples who were killed, assassinated and vanished. Many of those workers were influenced by the Chartists movement
