Cameron Makes Shocking Claim About Success of UK Steel Industry By REMAINING in The EU

The British steel industry could face severe challenges if Britain had not been affiliated with other European countries, The Prime Minister David Cameron stated on Wednesday ahead of the in/out June 23 referendum on whether to remain in the EU.

“I do not think it would be an excellent future for steel if we leave” Cameron told MPs when asked whether Britain’s membership with the EU had prevented us from protecting the steel industry, which has been hit by major competition from cheap Chinese imports as well as increasing production costs.

He said a lot of British-made steel was sold inside the EU’s single market, understanding that if Britain was on the outside of that market it might be at the mercy of increased tariffs.

This comes as a bold statement considering the steel crisis in the UK, and the fact that we give £55 million per day to the European Union.
