It is depressing how many 'British' companies now say "A xxxx Company" on their vehicles, where xxxx is a French or German name.
And there's Vauxhall, who's advertising recently has been bigging up it being a "British brand" for donkey's years Union flag and all), when in reality it have been US, and latterly French owned, and most of it's vehicles are made anywhere but the UK. Marketing and reality are two very different things, and Joe Public are easily fooled (as we found out big time to our cost a couple of years ago!!).
