[ROVERNET - UK] BBC E-mail: Rover cars to be made in China

No, you're not being too cynical.

...but selling the rights to build Rover 75s and 45s to the Chinese 
before a deal is struck just seems like more of the corporate raiding 
Towers and the other 3 venture crapitalists have been up to. They sold 
the factory -- and just about everything else of value before this.

How dare he (Towers) pat himself on the back for exceeding the 18 
months predicted for Rover's failure.
I'm sorry. This is big corporate at it's worst.

The Chinese have no business building, associating with or even looking 
at Rovers.

Hopefully the Rover and MG names can be bought by a British individual 
with a vision (John Bloor are you there?).

My TC remains my favorite car.
