    Jaguar sale

    Another one going by the sounds of it - shame really

    TATA SET TO BUY JAGUAR
    Report: Indian carmaker will be named as new owner of Land Rover and Jaguar in next few days

    Indian carmaker Tata is expected to be named as the preferred bidder for Land Rover and Jaguar in the next few days.

    Numerous reports have indicated Jaguar and Land Rover will become the first major Western group to be bought by an Indian company.

    Nothing has yet been confirmed but this week Ford could announce a deal.

    Tata is up against another Indian car group, Mahindra & Mahindra, and One Equity, the American buyout group.

    Ford is expected to make around £1billion from the sale.

    Unions named Tata as their preferred choice of new owner.

    the people in power have been selling out this country for years. It wouldnt surprise me that production of jags and LR will be moved elsehwere.
    People have become afraid to speak their mind.
