Title: Sick And Obscene

Manic Street Preachers Nicky Wire and James Dean Bradfield have lent their support to axed CORUS workers.

They have branded the steel company "sick and obscene". Singer Bradfield and guitarist Wire slammed CORUS's decision to make 2,500 steelworkers redundant in Wales.

Wire, from Blackwood, Gwent, said: "It's sick and obscene, a hideous form of capitalism."

Bradfield, whose uncle works for CORUS, said: "I thought of doing a Stone Roses-style hate protest at CORUS's offices." The Stone Roses are notorious for their drawn-out wrangles with their record label.
