Britain's last major carmaker was forced to stop production and start bankruptcy procedures after waiting too long for a loan that was delayed by the government. Rover needed a $188 million loan to secure an alliance with a Chinese automaker. In that time, the Chinese firm backed out saying "there could be no deal". The loss of MG Rover would put a real dent in Britain's car making industry and it would be ashamed to lose the 100 year-old automaker.
