    Considering we paid to rebuild them, wiped their war debt and they subsequently turned into international manufacturing powerhouses while old blightly is still paying off war debts i am not sure we did win.

    Is that We as in the US Marshall plan?

    The Russians knocking on the door of Europe probably had nothing to do with this kind gesture, who incidentally gave the whole wall thing a

    good crack.

    Oh Well...The Romans had a nice little empire for a bit too.

    Isn't it BMW who own Rover, Land Rover, Jaguar, and the Mini? Probably all owned by Kuwait and Saudi Oil money anyway, like Mercedes.

    No. 'Enfield' were produced in India. Enfield went bust and let the rights to the production go to settle a debt. The Indians weren't allowed to use the name, hense 'Royal Enfield'.

    Jesus man, use Google.
    Polemic....look it up

    Really? My Royal Enfield 250 was made in Redditch after WWII, but before it was ever an Indian owned venture.

    in 1893 Enfield became Royal Enfield, 1955 Indian plant producing Royal Enfields , 1967 only 2 models produced in U.K, plant shuts down . India exports Bikes to U.K and Europe.

    according to wiki there were 76 motorcycle manufacturers in the U.K , now dominated by the war losers. Germany , Japan and Italy
