Default Cadbury's.

So, why were the british government so impotent in the face of a hostile takeover of cadbury's by the US company Kraft ??
Because patricia hewitt removed any kind of public interest test from legislation approving mergers.
And now they are already shutting down factories [bristol] and shedding jobs.
Nice one 'new' labour. Looking after the working man as usual.

From a British bank the taxpayers were bailing out not so long ago... let's not forget that nugget of information.

Agreed Tik, scandalous indeed.

More "industry" sold down the river, to a company who had to borrow heavily for the purchase. Something really doesn't add up.

Jimmy, we all knew Kraft would be shutting down factories as soon as they got hold of Cadburys.
How come 'we' can see these things and the government, the experts, I use the word loosely, can't see it?

But it's got to be to their disadvantage having more peeps out of work? They can't keep milking the figures. Thinking the voters believe the figures of the unemployed.

They live in cloud cuckoo land j, this has been proven time and again. I wouldn't be surprised if some of them hadn't feathered their nests either.
