'Elf 'N Safety' in Tory Britain!

For all those Tory Party members and readers of the Daily Mail, who think that health and safety for workers in Britain has become a big joke, they should watch this video.

This incident took place last month on Stamford Street, Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester. A structural engineer was working atop a cherry picker, just inches away from a two-storey building when it collapsed in front of him. Eye-witnesses described how the workman had removed just a single brick from the building when it came crashing down in front of him.

Fortunately no one was injured and the police quickly cordoned off the area. A blue plaque which was displayed on the front of the building, shows that this was once the home of Francis Thompson, the Catholic poet, from Ashton-under-Lyne, who was a member of the Rhymers' Club which met at the 'Olde Cheshire Cheese' pub in Fleeet Street, London, in the 1890s. Among its members, were Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats and Ernest Dowson.
