I was pleased to read that the proposed $14bn bail out of the Detroit 3 has been voted down thanks to the GOP Senators showing some backbone – just for once. Naturally, if you read this BBC report, the Republicans are positioned as the bad guys, refusing to play along with the kindly Democrats and the tamed White House, with the poor trade union guys cast as the innocents in this soap opera. In fact it is the UAW which has a central portion of blame to take for the demise of GM and co but you would never guess this from the way the BBC writes up the item. The concept of letting inefficient business swing in the breeze seems incomprehensible to the BBC and its acolytes but from where I stand the GOP is quite right NOT to bail out the auto-barons and their Union henchmen.
