6 months and then 'sorrowfully' do a deal with David James?
I don't want to depress anyone, but as someone who cares a lot about MGR I feel I need to be better prepared to accept more dissapointments, so perhaps that's why I'm writing this. Ever since Nanjing signed the 33 year lease with a 6 month escape clause I began wondering why Nanjing would put the clause in one can only specualate that they did this because they see LB as a luxury that they want but may not be able to afford.
So then I started thinking, if Nanjing pulled the plug then what would they do? Pull the plug totally and make a run for it or perhaps do a deal with David James? David James now has the Smart Roadster, he and his team are no doubt busy redesigning it. How long will that take?? 6 months? or a bit longer? Wouldn't it be convienent if after 6 months Nanjing turn around and say David James will make the TF in the UK under license at the old Powertrain plant and the a new MG Midget based on the Smart roadster? David James seemed to think he had struck a deal with Nanjing. Perhaps he has, perhaps we will find out in 6 months time that this is plan B.....am I seeing a conspiracy theory that isn't there or is this the real story???
