The second snippet of the BBC Horizon programme on the Mondragon Co operatives. This clip concentrates on the role of the local Catholic Priest and the inspiration he found in the writings of Robert Owen. It also looks at the role that Sydney and Beatrice Webb in turning the Labour Party against Producer Co-ops -an antagonism that has lasted for nigh on a century (which is well worth recalling when some Labour folk suddenly try to claim that they aways supporte them.) Their Party most decidedly did not!

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
