    Keep Burberry British

    While the UK media is focused on one or two jobs in government, this week Chris Bryant MP and I have been rather more concerned with 300+ jobs in the Rhondda under threat at the Burberry factory in Treorchy. These make up about a third of Burberry's manufacturing jobs in the UK and could be lost to Asia.

    I have covered this in more detail on Rhondda Today.

    The Western Mail today quotes Mervyn Burnett of the GMB on the workers' anger and their thinking about a possible campaign to Keep Burberry British.
