Ta-ta to the UK

It was interesting to note that the BBC news has positioned Jaguar Land Rover opening a manufacturing plant as a “British” success story.

It was probably inevitable that cars for the Chinese marketplace would be switched to a lower-cost manufacturing base with the subsequent profits going back to the owner (Tata) in India.

The chilling part of the news was when they revealed that there would be local ­designs for the Chinese cars – so design/development will be undertaken in China. This could be the start of Tata 
saying “ta ta” to the UK.
