    Actually I was not meaning just trying to sell to Europe, of course they are protectionist, that is why Toyota and Nissan established assembly plants here. But I presume there are exports elsewhere,...

    Probably will go to France you are right, but as in the case of the MG factory, the factory should be taken over, and we keep the workforce on and produce our own cars and do not export the profits....
