    Default Help Jaguar Land Rover Support Petition

    Hi

    Your support in signing this petition would be greatly appreciated.

    The link you need to go to is:

    http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/HelpJLR/

    This is not a bail-out: This well-run company is not asking for hand-outs, but loans or guarantees at commercial rates to enable it to get on with developing high quality cars.

    If you feel strongly enough about this please pass it on to friends.

    We get 100,000 engines a year from just down the road in Bridgend!
    Thank you

    John O'Connell

    Sometimes we must brush aside pure economics and support iconic symbols of brittish industry,and this is as good as any i know.
    I must admit im a landrover nut at the moment re-building a 1980 88" the wife calls her the anti christ.
    Perhaps landrovers direction may be the problem and should have stuck to rugged easly repaired vehicles like the ones that built their reputation.
    You have to move with the times however.
    Ill sign.

    It is not that I object to the work, mind you; I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.

    Why not address the petition to the companies international owners and their multi billionaire head. There are plenty of companies making luxury products who can't find a market for their products. When is a bail out not a bail out? When I as a tax payer accept ultimate liability for the loan apparently.

    You might gather I'm not about to support a multinational company who comes running for state assistance. Now had you suggested taking it over without compensation to the owners then you might have had my support - but then that would have been political and not allowed.

    Hey Soloman - I may have been mis-informed , but an ex-pat Scotsman told me that when Land Rover was producing great vehicles, it was British, but nowadays, it seems, it's English..... dunno....
