Dunlop on the move now, four of my uncles worked there and one of them was the only man to start on Dulop shop floor and end up as a director.

This was discussed in Parliament this afternoon.
It seems that the Jag will expand into the land now occupied by Dunlop.
BCC have offered Dunlop a number of alternative sites, but because they didn't get their own way over their current site they have thrown their teddy out of their pram and declared their intention to leave the country.
The PM is going to look into possibilities for keeping them here.

I now have all Dunlops on my car and find they are the best tyres I have had in a long time.

Interesting
I have never heard of Parliament taking an interest in Birmingham before.

Do you think they are playing for more concessions of the government?

The PM had not heard of the situation until just before question time and probably forgot about it just after.
The MP for Erdington (I think) asked the question.
