And this from BBC NewsSteveChilds said:The whole situation is a joke. MGR saying they have not called in the Administrators, the government saying they have.
Eitherway, they almost certainly will be now, thanks to Mrs Hewitt. :irked:
The BBC's business editor Jeff Randall described the situation as "the most shambolic and chaotic end I've ever encountered for a UK company".
And yet again the Government has caused MG Rover more embarrassment. They have prematurely announced MG Rover going into administration. DTi leaks have caused this cash flow crisis this week. Had the suppliers not read the leaks and thought the worst, MG Rover would still be producing cars today, and would not have had all of their credit terms cancelled.The BBC's business editor Jeff Randall described the situation as "the most shambolic and chaotic end I've ever encountered for a UK company".
If it is as black and white as that I totally agree with you.EssexMGR said:Patricia Hewitt has caused the demise of Rover because of their premature announcement of MG Rover going into administration.
I think she should be called to resign from office due to the bungle.
TBH I dont think there is much help now, the damage has been done. The best thing that can happen is that a few government scalps are taken.rrvtom said:MG Rover have just put out a press realise which states that they are not in administration and the DTI should not have made that statement.
Is there hope?
Your incorrect. MP's cease to be as of Monday. But ministers are expected to carry on their normal duties until the election. One assumes Hewitt is a minister?jase said:Pointless sacking Hewitt. There isnt any more cabinet from Monday anyway.
Maybe an egging instead ?
But im sure that Labour will seriously suffer for her f*ckup
