A lot of hot air?

How serious is the Government about saving the environment when it is considering a financial package to support the manufacturer of some of the most polluting cars in the UK, Jaguar Landrover!?!

Im surprised you havnt juxtaposed these items. The govts willingness to consider supporting an Indian owned car manufacturer to the tune of £1billion with their staunch refusal to loan mere millions to a Britsh car maker (Rover) in 2005.

Maybe you have and I didnt notice!

Anonymous, you make a very good point! I'm becoming increasingly despondent about Gordon's attempts to borrow more and more merely to save jobs in Labour's electoral heartlands!

However, did he expect car sales to increase when he is threatening to introduce a showroon car tax and penalise gas guzzlers produced by the very car workers whose jobs he seeks to save!?!
