The political opposition of Tony Blair is seeking an investigation into the fall of MG Rover.

Thousands of the company’s workers have gotten redundancy notices with a general election coming up in less than three weeks.

According to a Reuters article,

“Another 20,000 jobs are at risk at suppliers and dealers.

The government has offered 150 million pounds ($283 million) for workers’ redundancy and retraining as it tries to limit the political fallout ahead of May 5’s election which Blair is expected to win, albeit with a slashed majority.

The West Midlands, home to Rover’s Longbridge plant and many suppliers, is a key election battleground and Labour could lose several constituencies with slim majorities.”

Last week MG Rover halted production after a rescue deal with Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp fell through.
