Ford may buy BMW
24 November 1999
If Ford buys BMW the future of Rover would again be in doubt.
Such a merger would also threaten some Ford of Britain operations Liverpool and Jaguar.
A Ford pick-and-mix, closures and survival rationalisation would be the result.
This adds even more urgency to get the Halewood terms for redundancy written into the blue book and committed to by the company. We must not continue to be the cheapest closure option.If the so-called Labour government wont help us, we must help ourselves.
