Blacklist update - 1st November

1. "McAlpine were checking an average of 65 names a day during the mass
recruitment stage of the Olympics stadium construction project. Public
money was being spent on blacklisting construction workers.

The Blacklist Support Group raised concerns and held protests but they
were largely ignored because no-one wanted to believe that it was
going on."
