BMW chief criticises Rover bosses

BMW’s UK chief has launched a scathing attack on the four businessmen who own MG Rover, branding them “the unacceptable face of capitalism”.

Managing director Jim O’Donnell said it was “disgusting” that MG Rover’s owners paid themselves fat salaries while losses continued at the company.

The “Phoenix four” were sold MG Rover by German owners BMW back in May 2000 for just £10 (14 euros)
