Germans to buy Britain's military bridge builder WFEL

Hot on the heels of the news that our countryside is about to be sold to the Germans (see my post beneath this,) comes news in the Daily Telegraph, linked here, that the German company best known for making Tiger tanks in WWII is to acquire our military bridge builder WFEL with the innovative expertise of 250 odd engineers.

WFEL was originally the Fairey Aviation Company. One must wonder why our fore -father's generations bothered building such planes as those of Fairey, and indeed spent years of blood toil, effort, misery, dreadful wounds and death in fighting the Germans for our independence, when our spineless politicians of today lay to waste our economy and hand our heritage to foreigners in exchange for worthless euros we must then spend our few remaining pounds sterling in supporting!

Unfortunatley we need to temper our feelings of outrage on this one.

British companies/capital is out there in the wider world, able to take ownership of foreign companies (I have some work related experience to support this statement). I also read a while ago about a German concrete pump company that was sold to a Chinese buyer.

Personally speaking I'm prepared to put down hard earned money towards a fund that would be used to ensure these precious assets stay in British hands.

Searching around led me to quite a few funds buying shares in British companies but I'm thinking of outright ownership. Possibly I need to investigate UK Venture Capitalist companies.

The search goes on.

Fair enough Akabilk, I wish you good luck in your search (perhaps a Stranger on a "foreign" shore will prove the key!).

I am all for British capital being at work in the wider world, it is when assets are taken within the deceit, subterfuge and corruption of the EU arrangements that I begin to get more than "somewhat" annoyed.
