  •  That shit happens over and over again (6+ / 0-)

    There were several independent chocolate and sweets manufacturers in England with a long and deep relationship with the areas they were in and 'effing Nestles gobbled them up and eventually closed down all the plants... shipped all the production to other parts of Europe... and there were the usual placating soothing lies told leading up to the purchase.

    They do it every time.... the bean counters and execs could care a toss...

    Diageo was considering CLOSING THE GUINNESS PLANT IN DUBLIN.... can you believe it!!! in the end they realized the shit storm that would have ensued would have been too much to live down... so they have compromised and will only sell off and/or re-develop half of the the historic site in St. James Gate in Dublin. Greedy bastards. It's not like the place is losing money...

    Pogo & Murphy's Law, every time. Also "Trust but verify" - St. Ronnie
