    yes its not good to hear and im sure we all would love to help but the best way to surport them, AT THE MOMENT is to KEEP buying bits / cars etc from them isnt it?

    Yeah can't really do alot TBH mate. Such a massive company, the guys at the top make all the big decisions. Why are they laying so many people off anyway? Whats the reason they are giving??

    Depends why they are laying off so many. If its to move abroad as it is cheaper then buying parts/cars will do nothing but fatten the wallets of the management/directors.

    Unfortunately with the UK economy and currency being so strong it is now uneconomical to produce cars in the UK, especially now poorer (cheaper) eastern European countries are in the EU.

    Blame the Government for creating the economic situation, not GM

    genius, let's boycott vauxhall, thus reducing their profitability even further and lead to more layoffs...


    i agree with the sentiment but there's really not a lot we can do - the factis that if they don't lay off these jobs now, things could get even worse a little bit down the line.
