Why are the UK government helping Jaguar/Land Rover and not Woolworth's?
Jaguar/Land Rover an old established company many jobs at stake, Woolworth's 30,000 jobs at stake why help one without the other. Woolworth's are 99 years old and much a part of every shoppers lives. Why was Tatar allowed to buy Jaguar/Land Rover if they need money so soon.
