10,000 new jobs? Must be in India then.
If £100m investment will create 10,000 new jobs then those poor saps will be on salaries of less than £10,000 each. Probably half that once you subtract the cost of the vehicles, 1000's of meetings, and a fortune in expenses.
Mark my words. Nothing will come out of this. I think this is all part of the government's plans to bankrupt Britain before the Tories take over in 2010. Gordon said his plan is to spend, spend, spend. He could at least spend it on something that will be hugely beneficial to us in real terms.
