Be great to see one or both sink the other

Ian Og. was championing J. Bamford of the JCB group to buy out Wrightbus. J. Bamford is also big pals with the Tory 1922 outfit apparently.

Ian has a plan.

The Da Bamford of JCB fame is a big pro Brexit supporter.

I was told by someone from the vicinity that the Wrights bought the whole site two years ago for a knockdown £4M on the proviso that they couldn't sell on for a profit for 10 years.
Evidently Bamford knows this and has offered the £4M but Pastor Jeff is wanting more as it's currently valued at £10M.

No pockets in a shroud Jeff!

Would the fact the Bamfords are Catholic have any bearing on the Pastor’s reluctance to sell the property?

Nope....money is money, but it's all the sweeter when you rip off some English Taigs. Pastor Jeff will do a deal....when he's advised to do so, by his lord & saviour.

They’re English Taigs clearly with the same political opinions as Rees Mogg and Duncan Smith.
Careful now

If there was such a restrictive covenant youve alluded to below I would be very surprised anyone would value the land at £10m

I wonder, if both the Shipyard and Wrightbus are saved, will those workers who previously contributed to the religious intolerance in both have a Damscence conversion and appreciate the support that has been given from both sides of the community in the fight to keep the two places afloat?

The land was bought at a knocked down price, no doubt because of who was the buyer. Ian P wouldn't have set that deal up, now he like the ground back.

Never seen media attention like it the past few months to both Wrightbus and H & W.  Im sure there have been many more large companies that have closed down over the past 10 years who haven't got a mention or any sort of a campaign to save them.

The sticking point seems to be 40 acres of agricultural land attached to the factory but not part of the factory but was part of the original deal for the Gallaghers plant.

Ian O'g alluded to all the help he's given the Wrights over the years and I'm sure he wants this to go through with no fuss as he himself might not want too many looking under this particular stone.

I’m sure of course he gave all this help out of the goodness of his heart and not for any material reasons...
