[DML] Re: DMCH Open House - Haddad speech.

I did not mean to infer that everything bad that happened to the UK was all because of what happened to DMC. I was trying to show that when the climate for business investment changed DMC was not the only company to suffer and that was one of the things that caused the economy to start downwards (or at least accelerate it down). Things did not start to improve again until the EU got going and Airbus became successful. When a government starts using business as a "whipping boy" the economy suffers. Too bad no one learns from the past huh? This is EXACTLY what we are going through now! From all that I have read the ultimate failure of DMC was the British government forcing DMC into bankrupcy. It was within their power to save it if they wanted to. The could have renegotiated more favorable repayment terms. I guess they weren't "To Big To Fail".
