    I really don't believe it. I have two friends that have been forced off 'benefits' and pushed into being self employed. Neither are making any real money and both are still claiming supplementary benefits. But, they no longer appear on the headline, unemployed figures. I really think it time the government (of whatever colour) came clean on the true figures.

    My theory on this is that the Chinese only staved off bankruptcy last time in order to gain trade secrets and expertise. It was a cheap way of bringing them up to date with technology. It's a trick I've seen employed many times. BMW with Rover for example!

    A bit of good news for Coventry. Shame the council's partially put itself out of a new home though: http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/new...enant-13121708

    I think I'll wait and see on this one. There are more questions than answers at the moment.

    Sadly, this was one of the more predictable failures. BUT, there will be more...

    I really can't see Japan being that big a market, especially when the flip side is that they're buying 70m worth of components.

    I know that Rover (and its special products division) had real difficulties selling vehicles in Japan. So much so that they ended up re-importing many of them unused after about 3 years. MG RV8 anyone?
