Reader feedback: Do not blame the Slovak worker

The Slovak worker isn't to blame for this situation, nor is their hard-working British compatriots, who find their efficient factories closing. It is the factory owners and the politicians that are now seizing their opportunities for greater exploitation.

This is the new "globalization" and we are just starting to see the effects.
