I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

It was mentioned earlier about UK manufacture and company ownership moving overseas, quintessentially British companies being foreign owned. I looked up Hanson which at one time was touted as a major British company owning large parts of US industry; out its now German.

Then i looked up a Buick after we had enjoyed driving a hire car in the US; it is now Chinese.

To say that GB plc is now owned by foreign investors maybe true but avoids the obvious conclusion that money goes to where they can make money.
