Birmingham Betrayed...

Today is a sad day.
I will write little, only to say that today the last remaining major manufacturing industry in this once proud city of 101 trades has been sold to the Americans with God knows what consequences for the people of Birmingham who work at Cadbury's.
Not only have we lost Jaguar, HP Sauce,LDV, Austin aka Rover,Typhoo Tea & now....Cadbury.

  1. It's a real shame. That's golbalisation for ya. We noticed this morning that Cadbury's is now owned by the same conglomerate that owns Vegemite. As usual, I feel sorry for the workers there and hope an HP Sauce type situation doesn't emerge. I'd hate to have to add Curly Wurlys to the list of mustn't haves.
