I like these Rover, and I'm always sad thinking about the disappearance of Rover make ! ... I find also vile the fact that british governement couldn't help its own industry by purchasing Rovers for their administrative fleets like Police car... that is one of many bad sides of Brussels Commission and its ideologic dogmas of free trade every where and on any subjetcs ( though, I'm fully pro -European unity, but not the actual EEC made only for the merchants/finance lobbying )

IIRC the West Midlands Police (Rover's local force) was buying Rovers up to the end, but other forces preferred other manufacturers' products. EU governments are allowed to retain a national preference for defence hardware, but that arguably just leads to companies being entirely dependent on orders from their home government. Furthermore, defence companies can blackmail governments into giving them work by threatening job losses (i.e if you don't buy this product we'll sack the five hundred people who make it and it will be your fault).

Well, Rover went under administration because nobody bought their cars, possibly not even you? I remember TV footage from when it was closed. Angry assembly line workers drove off - in their new BMWs! How can you better kill your own job?
And it is certainly not the role of a government to buy a mis-managed company.
Rover gave us great cars in history. But since the SD1 production was unceremoniously ended despite strong sales, they only produced utter rubbish. The most dismal thing of them all must have been the City Rover, yech. And face it, the 75 was a joke as well. Just not a funny one.

So what? Is Defense industry in USA not very strongly dependent of US government orders? I think it is! ...though there are the world-champions of the free-trade globalization at WTO or in bilateral negociations , Americans are able to show a strong protectionism when their strategical or economical interests are in danger ... (see their policy about their Steel industry ...)
I wonder why Europe would not do the same? :)

You know as me that the use of blackmail on employment is since 25 years a component of companies gouvernance strategy ;) ... downsizing, flexibility in work laws, limitation of syndicates, delocalization...

yes a ZT-T 2,5 V6 a very good car [Image: top.gif]

when I bought it, I sold me beloved Rover 75 CDT that I had since 2000. Before I had a very reliable 620 Si ... really I liked very much my Rovers and still cannot bear idea of selling my MG ;)
