Saab becomes the latest victim of the Jonah curse

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Jonah Brown is continuing to wreak havoc on the global economy.

A week ago he visited an Ericsson R&D plant, a Mini factory and a Corus factory.  A few days later Ericsson announced 5,000 job cuts, BMW announced 850 job cuts at Mini and Tata announced massive job cuts as part of a £600m cost saving exercise at Corus.

When I saw the announcement that Saab is considering filing for bankruptcy protection in Sweden, my first reaction was “what’s the link with Gordo?”  And sure enough, it didn’t take long to find evidence of Jonah’s involvement.

El Gordo has been talking to the head of General Motors in Europe, Carl-Peter Forster, about setting up an electric car factory in the UK.  Carl-Peter Forster also happens to be Chairman of … you’ve guessed it … Saab.

How different things might have been if Jonah hadn’t been allowed to spread his curse around the globe.
