We all know that we'd be talking about Morgans if Black had had his way!
Anyhow, probably something to do with Morgan employing a 'father and son'
workforce and Triumph and BL having a bunch of workshy leftie socialist
good-for-nothings forced on them by a labour government. You will
remember that TR7 production was held up at the Speke factory coz the
lazy Scouse gits didn't like the colour of their overalls/boiler-suits!
Almost the same reason Rootes and the Imp went belly-up. The government
refused investment unless the factory/work was sent to high-unemployment
areas, not areas that had pride and experience in car production, i.e
Coventry. Also see Aurevoir Jensen, Bonjour delorean debacle!!!!
