[quote=Podger][quote=tim_marra][quote=Podger]Just to reinforce my opinion that DB should not be the CEO , I noted it the Hansard link that :

The CEO, Dany Bahar, has stated publicly in a recent interview that it would �make no sense� to move manufacturing. However, he also stated the exact opposite at the Paris motor show in October 2010 and at the Los Angeles motor show in November 2010, when it was stated that production would shift abroad and that a new factory site would be decided on before Christmas.

News to me.

Roll on June..... ;) [/quote]

It was to me to :(

I'll give you that, if not for all the right reasons or outcomes ;) [/quote]

It would be easy to see no issue or contradiction with the two statements where the former refers to setting up a subsidiary or satellite factory to meet local market demand whilst retaining the Hethel facility as a hub; and the latter where Hethel is shut down and the facility is moved lock, stock and barrel.

It was certainly the latter that was being used as the scenario in the debate in parliament.
