Poor old Rover. MG Rover, that is. Pity it's a dog of a car manufacturer, but a sad day for British engineering that one of our last car makers hangs by a thread.

Ironic the, the latest advertising campaign for MG.

Old folks driving an MG off to a retirement home.

Meanwhile, whatever happened to workers' ownership under Labour's talismanic Clause 4.

To secure for the workers by hand or by brain the full fruits of their industry and the most equitable distribution thereof that may be possible upon the basis of the common ownership of the means of production, distribution, and exchange, and the best obtainable system of popular administration and control of each industry or service.

Oh yes. Tony Blair re-wrote Clause 4 and one of Labour's prime political planks is long forgotten.

Meanwhile, the Donut household motor (yep, a Rover) sits outside.
