SWAN = rather brilliant

BTW, can you guys perhaps get some insider info on which supplier failed this time and for what reason (refusal to delivery or problems with production on supplier’s side?)

I see the media getting all worked up again with regard to the stoppages. The usual headlines include ailing, failing and struggling. Can’t they find some new adjectives? They don’t seem to bothered about the Japanese car plants stopping and starting due to part supply problems following the tsunami, which in my view is a far more serious problem. I did some work for Jaguar many years ago (Paint Shop Conveyors control system). Their production line was constantly stopping and starting due to part supply issues.

And SPYKR is now SWAN?

That will only happen on June 15 and not “now” / today πŸ˜‰

If only Saab were more like a Swan progressing serenely through the water while paddling like f#ck below the water line, a more appropriate image is that of a dead duck being picked to pieces by a load of Chinese crows! No Red J I am not being negative just being a realist, expect the worst but hope for the best.
