'Buy American' -- or Bye-Bye America
By Patrick J. Buchanan

"British jobs for British workers!" thundered Gordon Brown, as he emerged 
from the shadow of Tony Blair to become prime minister.

His populist sloganeering has now come back to bite him.

Across Britain, thousands laid down tools in wildcat strikes in solidarity 
with a walkout from a French-owned oil refinery in North Killinghome -- to 
protest a $300 million contract to an Italian company that plans to bring 
in 400 Italian and Portuguese workers to fulfill it.

As Brown pleaded from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that 
Britain must not retreat into "protectionism," strikes spread to Scotland, 
Wales and Ulster.

Britain's commitment to let foreigners buy up its utilities and industries 
and bring in foreign workers to run them has backfired. Brown's own Labor 
Party is now angrily demanding that he live up to his pledge: British jobs 
for British workers.

"The Return of Economic Nationalism," wails the alarmed cover of The 
Economist. And understandably so.
