    Thread: UK Recovery Watch

      Nick Reilly deserves hearty congratulations for saying the politically unsayable. The boss of Vauxhall pointed out in an interview yesterday that talk of a revival in British car-making is fanciful. His own company, as well as most other big household names in the industry, struggled to find British producers capable of making suitable parts at scale. The result, he noted, was that UK automakers had to buy lots of foreign-made components, with all the attendant currency risk, shipping costs and much longer turnaround times. "It's not enough to have Nissan, Toyota, Vauxhall manufacturing the products," he said. "We'll never be able to compete with another country where the suppliers are surrounding the car plants."

      The exact same thing has happened to the car industry here, more and more parts are bought in as there is practically no manufacturing left.
      The good news is that the motorcycle industry in the UK is going from strength to strength.

      More good news at a time when car manufacturers at 'home' are cutting back.
