Beats me why taxpayers should give their taxes to prop up private companies.
They are all pretty quick to sack and wipe their hands of workers when their bonus is at stake.
It is the aim of the Capitalist system for weak companies to die. If we prop them up, its just communism under another name.
We have only 22 million people yet believe we can have a auto industry, its a joke considering your 300 million cant afford one. Engines are shipped to Aus from the US and then the whole car is exported back to the US. Motor companies are just like the Mafia, shifting money from place to place to try to avoid the inevitable.
Time to realise that autos are now an industry that is best served by 3rd world countries manufacturing under 1st world standards and guidance.
