Bob Piper has some interesting comments on the blog about Rover from the author of The UK Today, taking issue with John Hemming's attempt to shift the blame for the apparent collapse of Rover onto a few briefings from the DTI (anything to shift the focus from those who assembled the Phoenix consortium).
Although the PM and Chancellor were criticised for 'electioneering' by visiting Birmingham yesterday, they would have been damned as uncaring if they didn't. In fact, not offering a failing business a £100 million loan may be a very brave decision, as the loan may only have staved off the inevitable until after the election.
You do have to question a business that finds the money to pay top managers millions while digging a deeper pensions hole and not making any profit. Or perhaps that's John Hemming's idea of good corporate governance?
