Little point talking now about the rights or wrongs, i think 6,500 people are about to lose their jobs. Add to that another 25,000 or so i factor in Pug running down Ryton and Jag @ Browns lane and i think things are not very funny at all.

I can't imagine WHY people think Labour are great at running the land? I mean we already lost 1 million manufactoring jobs and now this. All Labour did was stick to Tory spending plans. They also raied the pensions and got everyone to spend their savings.

People forget about being carful with cash, we into another 80's style boom, they went off the deep end...."Changing Rooms" bul**** etc.

well, thats that. So MG well i was thinking BMW own the rights, ........................a mini based sports/spider type car from Oxford?
Longbridge.....unless we have a deal by Monday morning......i think it gone :(


To those who post here from MGR i am very sorry, i hope it does come good but if not please understand that i hope things work out for you and your familys.
Cheers
Mike

No, MG is owned by MG Rover Group Limited.

Yup 110% right there John.

My only questions concerns the reports that K-Series and other parts of the business have already been purchased by SAIC. What happens now? Guess we will have to wait for a few days.

I think the best that we can hope for is that the engineers and some of the new designs resurface after the dust settles, and that any resulting cars are produced in the UK.

My fear is that any IP that is worth having will go to the highest bidder, and is unlikely to stay in the UK.

As for the actual assembly and manufacturing jobs, I can't see many of the workers finding suitable employment. I really feel for them.

I don't think SAIC have any rights over anything now
It depends on the terms of the individual contracts m8, there were multiple deals leading up to this stage, the final main agreement.

Yeh it wouldnt surprise me if the big manufacturers try to pick up the MG badge.
TBH, I think we've seen the end of Rover, MG on the other hand is a very desirable marque, someone will buy the brand, although probably not the models..

Carn't see it myself given they are stuggling with jag as it is, and really Rover 75 should be competeing in the same ground as the X type even if doesnt(sorry got to get using the past tense) really these days
