The latest "chinese takeaway"...

MG cease production at Longbridge... moving to China...

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-37449289

 

Will they be re-branded to MSG ? 

 

( MSG is a food additive, often put into chinese takeaways)..

 

MSG could be Morris Sino Group...  !

It's a shame the wheels have come off the Longbridge plant.

I was never sure how assembling they actually did?

In the Commons I expect some MP will stand up and say -

The Chinese were dissembling about the longevity of assembling.

They are just taking away a corpse that died years ago.

Before British Leyland strangled this splendid piece of British history, my pride and my young wife's worry was a rather tattered red MGB back in the days when they had wire wheels, and before they raised the suspension and altered the front end in order to suit the American market. 

The Chinese can have the name, we'll keep the memories.

Nah, it was much to heavy an engine for the car, they had more success with putting that Rover V8 in but by then it was past it's best, and passed being mucked about with.

China's owned the MG name since 2005 when the rover group finally collapsed and the vultures picked the remains clean, and the cars they made were some rather grotty things designed in china based around cloned parts and copied engines, with crash safety that would make a 2CV look positively safe... Funny

The 2CV, a four wheeled crumple zone! Grin

I'd have more faith in a rusted 2CV than a shiny new chinamobile in a crash... Funny

More meat on the plate..... but can you be sure what kind of meat it is ?

A few years ago a chinese resturant was closed down when they found lots of empty tins of cat meat but the owner had no cats.
