Couldn't agree more. I didn't live in the UK in the years prior to BMW investment, so don't know how good or more likely bad the products were in those days. However, with the dismal resources at hand, I think that the current team have done admirably well, in fact, in my and many other's opinion, they've done better than BMW. But, sad truth of the matter is that without investment they were on a road to nowhere, and to tell you the truth, the MGR story is merely a prelude to a major tragedy for the country as a whole, unless something is done about it. In the same way that supermarkets have been the death knell for small, local retail outlets, so, with the dawning of globalisation, global giants will eliminate the 'small man' in many other areas of life. If the UK does not do something now to become a player in global alliances the whole country is going to go the way of your local trader.
