My grandfather was a shop steward at Ford Dagenham, and he was not about the business of destruction, but stewarding the shop he worked in, to ensure it kept functioning as intended.


But Dagenham isn't functioning any more is it? No disrespect to your grandfather but Ford were churning out total crap from the British plants. The stuff was awful, it really was total crap. Couple that with the unions and there was no hope for manufacturing here any more. Is it any wonder Ford totally pulled out of the UK but happily produces in other EU states like Germany etc. One word................. Unions

Where does this claim that American produced solar is an inferior product? Did somebody make a citation on that earlier that I missed??
