Tata buys Jaguar in £1.15bn deal

have to paint mine tri color now..weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

"I read this several months ago somewhere but can't for the life of me recall exactly where. Anyway, the article had said that the chairman of the Indian Railway Board at the turn of the last century when the British ruled India, a Sir Upcott, was so skeptical of the fledgling Tata, that he had rather cockily announced that he would eat every pound of steel used in the construction of the railways that Tata could produce that actually met the exacting British standards.

It is said that in the two decades that followed he suffered from severe indigestion. biggrin.gif

No doubt the Mittal-Arcelor merger, spurred Tata to expand to S.E. Asia last year. They're bidding for Some Russian and S. African companies as well."
