Define "pissed around"Mega said:They were given everything, inclunding time to slim down MGR and design/build a new MG Sports car, as in 50,000 a year. They took over and pissed around ,pissed away the time and cash, nothing to show for it.
No Windy, we just don't believe the tripe printed in the press about them. Its just an attempt by the Government to find someone to blame so they don't get blamed.Windy Miller said:Exactly my feelings. There's a lot of sycophants on this board who think the sun shines out their asses.
I do to, but I would stop short of saying they did anything criminal. I think they just plain muffed up, though with the money available I don't know that they could have done vastly better.Windy Miller said:=I posted a thread a couple of nights ago and got slated by a lot of you but I think the directors have a lot to answer for.

Mega is back and talking sh!t as usual.......Mega said:Well Nick
Pissed around, like they were some great automotive force with a world wide dealer net work. Trying to build a car to match Nissan,Audi,Etc, When they should using the 75,45,25 to give them time to come up with a range of sexy Sports cars selling say 50,000 a year (MGB&MGB/GT).
Not Pissing around with that SV and Dreaming about palming the 400 million onto somebody else.
I read today in a business newspaper that JT claimed when he bough MGR for £10 that they would be in the black within 2 years.richierover said:compare the £500mill loan from BMW (which had to last for five years)
Windy. WTF are you on?Windy Miller said:Nonsense. I hate the Labour government but I'm afraid you have to look at the situation and it's clear to me that the directors p*ssed about and did not do a good job. It's time to wake up and realise you're been licking the sh*t off of someones bottom for the last few years.
