    We do our best in London to encourage businesses to grow elsewhere by making it so expensive to live and work here.
    Let us not forget EU open doors immigration benefits IT contractors more than anyone

    Here is the real truth behind his rant:

    "Here, Margaret Thatcher ruined manufacturing to serve the interests of a City keen to acquire assets overseas rather than investing in Britain."
    Austin Mitchell needs to get over it. It was thirty years ago that Thatcher alledgedly "ruined manufacturing". And how exactly did she do this? By swinging her handbag around and flattening the old steel forges?

    Easy - when banks can make lots of money by ripping customers off, playing on stock markets making money every nanosecond, then why would they invest into risky businesses with 5-7% ROI?
