The Return Of British Leyland

Recommended Posts

The UK is prepared to make loans or loan guarantees to help push through the sale of Vauxhall, Business Secretary Lord Mandelson has said.... "This is taxpayers' money we are dealing with, and a lot of it."

Well with all this printy printy burning a hole in his pocket, may as well p1ss it away on something or other...

Personally I dont like the name British Leyland name it conjures up some bad car memories!

Beg pardon?

The sheer joy that the Morris Marina, Austin Allegro, Jaguar XJ6, Rover SD1, Triumph something or other et al provided motorists in this wonderful nation with is of legend..they were particularly resplendent when painted brown :lol:

The Government should be investing in research & development of alternative fuel vehicles with the intention of becoming a world class manufacturer.

As soon as a good (speed,range) reasonably priced (i.e. not the Lotus TESLA at £100k) car is available I would buy one.

The quicker we get away from our reliance on oil and the transfer of our wealth in buying it from unstable Muslim nations the better.

Goverments getting into bussiness they should stay out of!

Mike

Governments should not intervene to stop the erosion of our manufacturing base?

Governments should stand by while industries join the race to the bottom and export jobs eastwards?

Do you believe we need a mixed ecnomy, or do you think we can survive and prosper with just the service sector?

The Austin Princess is my personal favourite - oh, how I long to drive a car that looks like a lump of cheese. B)

Yes, I remember the brown ones, the most appropriate colour I think.

At least Rovers were better, I'm still running a 14 year old one without problems.

I can see lots of nationalisations happening over the next few years, no matter which party is in government - simply because there won't be the capital (i.e. excessively leveraged debt) available for private enterprise to access.

Look out for the railways (already starting to happen), BA, BAA, possibly BT, Corus and Jaguar/Landrover. We really ought to get the utilities companies back in UK hands as well.

In the fifties the Princess was a real car.

Add Bilderberger to the list. His last attendance was seven weeks ago (along with supposed political foes Osborne and Clarke, again).

But the BBC et al maintains a news blackout; not because of a DA-notice or court injunction but because those who own the 'free' mainstream media and control the public broadcaster are determined to keep the British people ignorant.
