Hello John, got a plate for your new motor?
Congratulations on your article Rover under John Towers:
where to from here?. I found it quite refreshing to read
such well balanced comments instead of the predictable, one-sided
negativity often generated elsewhere.
Pictures of the new MG X10 have been released
by MG Rover and as you normally find in these instances the
picture carries the associated number plate on the car, in this
case MGX10. Quite incredibly I have obtained two
further associated numbers X10MG and X10MGR
which I'm sure have excellent marketing potential. I would appreciate
any suggestions you may have for advertising these items in
the most effective manner.
A plea from Longbridge
What the hell is going on? Rover can't go with a cheap, plastic
shoddy company like Proton! If I were in charge, I would merge
with PeugeotCitroën to make a major northern European
player in the ever-increasing world of global ownership. Everything
that is British is in John Towers' hands. If he fails we will
have nothing left and become the laughing stock of the world.
Hmmm … Proton is cheap and shoddy,
yet came from nothing in 15 years and offers one of the longest
warranties for its class in the UK. It's the owner of Lotus
which has been able to act independently and remain British
to the public, launch a new Elise, all thanks to Malaysian money.
An equal link-up with Proton would have these benefits and everyone
could keep speaking English, one of the official languages of
Malaysia. Being a former colony, things British aren't as silly
there as they are perceived on the Continent.
Based on past behaviour of PSA, your suggestion
could see MG Rover usurped by a French corporation with familial
interests that has not done well in most non-European markets
except for Red China, Brazil, Argentina and the middle east.
Longbridge would be churning out Peugeot 307s by 2004 and it'll
be a permanent bye-bye to the Rover marque. I'm not going to
say PSARover won't work, but it's not a particularly globally
minded strategy in my opinion. Remember the Peugeot 309in
other words what Peugeot did to what was left of the Rootes
Groupand let that be a lesson to us Brits.—Editor
Is the fox watching the hen house? If I were Al Gore and Joe
Lieberman, I would post a guard or guards on the ballots until
they can be legimately counted by both Republicans and Democrats,
to protect against any hanky-panky that may take place while
awaiting a ruling by the courts. I would not trust anyone in
the meantime who might sabotage it.
For years the left-wing faction within the United States have
promoted the gay agenda. Every effort that could be taken to
paint gay behaviour as normal has been. Considering this, it
is difficult to understand why Tina Brown would spend so much
time and money trying to expose gays that were involved in Ken
Starr's investigation of the scum bag president now in office.
Is Tina trying to say that being gay is a bad thing? I suggest
Tina pack her bags and head back to England and crawl back into
the slime she came from.

In regards to the FordVolvo merger, I hope that it does
not go the way of so many other aquisitions by American investments.
They begin by Americans buying great, small, profitable, and
creative companies, and marginalizing them. Assimilating them
into the characterless American giant corporation.
