If we can privatise banks why not Vauxhall Motors?
If we can subsidise new car sales, why not a British brand?
If we want to help the British economy out of recession, why not shore up British jobs?
If we want to help the car industry through these tough times why not encourage/incentivise motorists & fleet buyers to buy a new British car ahead of other makes that will benefit foreign owners?
I’d like to know why we can’t do this – surely this option has been on the table this time around?
After all, the only genuinely British car manufacturer is Morgan today and it doesn’t have the production capability or product range to cater for the volume needed whereas Vauxhall does and there are 5000 jobs at risk.
I think the time is right to back Britain NOW and shore up what could be a lucrative car manufacturer; rather than letting it leak overseas and leave us with a mainly service based economy for the future.
But now that the German government has chosen Canadian Magna to take over Opel and Vauxhall (where were we I wonder…) we can expect to have ringside seats whilst they asset strip on our doorstep.
Ring any bells?
Go on Mandy – do something really important with a view to the future… stand up for British best interests here and allow British motorists to help the economy by buying a new British car in future.
Other countries seem to care more about this than GB does viz France, Germany and Italy.
Maybe it’s not too late to make a real difference to the British motor industry. Vauxhall cars aren’t exciting but they are popular and they have the range and know how.
Call in some clever marketing brains to see how easy it would be to encourage the wannabe patriotics to actively support their country by buying British…
We want to feel proud to be British and to remember what that means in terms of hard work and ethics. Someone please give us hope for the future, not despair and give us our pride back.
