Workers occupying Appledore Shipyard

And blogging whilst they're at it

Appledore Shipbuilders in North Devon is under threat of closure. Receivers were appointed today. For the last few days, the work force has been occupying the yard in a so-called work-in. These are the lot who were demonstrating at the Labour conference yesterday. (Given that the MOD was apparently considering splitting an order for offshore patrol craft between Vosper Thornycroft in Portsmouth and Appledore - one hopes they may be swayed to make a gesture for party unity..) This is now a featured blog. Good luck.
