Thomas talks about Opel, a German automotive manufacturer. He says: “Opel has a problem with its plants not being fully utilised. They’re probably hammering out a deal that’s in favour of Germany and France.”
He goes on to talk about the affect this might have on the UK and potentially on Vauxhall’s plant in Ellesmere Port near Liverpool or its second plant in Luton.
