The worst car they made was the Marina!
But they were all rot boxes. Some were rusty when you bought them new.

Alec Issigonis came up with the idea of a transverse enging and front

build as all the mechanicals were in one lump.  They just lowered the
body on to it.  Now a host of cars use this layout.
As with any goverment owned industry the work force though there was
an inexhaustable supply of money for their wages.  and few of them
wanted to do a days work.  The Labour gov was in the union's pocket
due their financing of them.
This what will happen to GM.

He never.  He perfected front wheel drove using constant velocity joints.  A
device used on sub periscopes.

Oh f***k off!!!!!!

You just watch. It will be Obama's undoing.  All nationalised
industries end in disaster.   What happened to the USSR? China?

The mines in the UK were the same. Maggie Thatcher sorted the sponging
layabouts out.

Tell me how constant velocity joints were used on  sub periscopes.
This intrigues me.

It is your interpretation of events.  Some sort of right wing loony.  Obama
and Brown have to nationalise to stabilise the countries. Then they sell off
when times are good, to repay loans.
