Rover cars demise echoes Uniroyal fiasco

The Uniroyal manufacturing plant was sunk by its German owners after the Scottish 'executive' left it adrift as London had done for years.

Now, with BMW's surprise announcement it has sold most of it Rover ownership to a venture capital company we see industry being sold down the river, with London unable to help - as usual.

The main problem as BMW asserts is more than likely the pound is just too damned expensive - time to go to the Euro ASAP Blair. Protect REAL manufaturing jobs for exports and not the 'city boys' for a change.
