Always seems to be the way when we let foreign companies take over our industries.

The only people surprised by this are our politicians who seem happy to cede control to overseas interests;
unlike the French, Germans, Italians, Spanish, etc.

Interesting that when the Swiss were engaged in buying a British company some while back, the papers here
reported that they had regulations in force to protect their own companies.

Why is Britain always the soft-touch?.

Don't worry, all these miners have to do is retrain in some capacity to 'service' the booming population of second home owners from the SE. Maybe they could consider opening little deli's all over the place selling pots of preserves, olives and pickles at 5 a pop...Better still, specialise in flavoured olive oils in trendy square bottles filled with unidentified floating pink and black spheres at a tenner a piece.

Tyrellcorp. has clearly seen the New Liebour re-generation plan for the region. The South-West is the next suburb of London with the added bonus of being "affordable". Another brilliant plan by the people who brought you conditions of debt, hix taxation and a permanently low rate of inflation by excluding all those things you need to buy.
