The biggest industrial drama since the miners' strike. It began when BMW revealed plans to sell Longbridge to venture capitalists who intended to turn the huge plant into a niche sports car factory, with thousands of job cuts. Less than two months later, Longbridge was saved by the Phoenix consortium, which pledged to maintain it as a volume producer. Read the inside story by Carl Chinn, the community historian who led the public campaign against BMW's plans, and Stephen Dyson, the journalist who became one of the closest observers of the affair. With foreword by John Towers, Chairman of Rover Group.
"Chinn and Dyson's We Ain't Going
Away! is certain to set emotions stirring for anyone with interests of
Longbridge at heart."
(Birmingham Evening Mail)
"Now here's a useful present for Jon
Moulton, the chap who thought he'd taken the wheel at Rover... he won't like it
very much. It makes crystal clear that trade and industry minister Stephen
Byers was the prime mover behind the Phoenix bid".
