I can't remember the colour of the constituency in which this factory is situated, but I shall be watching the voting pattern for it with interest.

Before this becomes a "slag off Kraft" fest, Cadbury's had already decided to close this plant and move production to Poland before the takeover. Maybe this was one of the reasons that Kraft saw potential in buying Cadbury's out?

Fair one, sorry.

It's not like no one saw it coming though. I'm sure the Bourneville site's days are numbered too.

As an (irrelevant) aside. Do you think they will make man-size Curly Wurly's again, not the shortened version (they were made by Cadbury's weren't they?)

I can see now that the factory lies in the constituency of Dan Norris, a DEFRA Minister, who just squeaked in last time.

There is a boundary change coming up but Dan is the Labour candidate for the new constituency. ermm All the best with that one, Dan.......

Even though it is true that Cadbury had its own plans to close the factory, I suspect that it is this moment which will feature in the minds of the local voters as they go to the polls.

Kraft chairman and chief executive Irene Rosenfeld said the combined business had a "phenomenal future".
Ms Rosenfeld, who is reportedly due to met Business Secretary Peter Mandelson tonight, has pledged that she will keep open the Somerdale factory at Keynsham
It was interesting, locally, that the “Bristol†workers showed little concern that the Krafty Americans would likely make their Brummie comrades (TU speak) redundant.

Kraft chairman and chief executive Irene Rosenfeld said: “In our recent talks with Cadbury senior management, it became clear that it is unrealistic to reverse the closure programme, despite our original intent to do so. While this is a difficult decision, we have moved quickly to end any further uncertainty.â€
In the run-up to its £11.7 billion takeover, the American food firm had promised to save the Somerdale plant, which is in the process of being run down by Cadbury, with production switched to Poland.
Kraft said Cadbury had already spent £100 million on building new facilities in
Not so happy faces in Westoland now.

Well Kraft allegedly did say they wouldn't shut it down most of us realised this was to appease the general public those of us who didn't possibly should have when that snake tongued, ex mp, bent, snivelling, bar steward mandelson got involved.
How can one man be so devoid of any morals is beyond me and still get asked back in by the goverment who ditched him in the first place.

Mate they never got smaller, you just got bigger. It's all about perspective.

This cow is small, this cow is far away :D

Does that work for Waggon Wheels as well?

I wonder if Kraft did the standard asset stripper drill and thoroughly “reviewed†the Cadbury pension fund. Just idle speculation, though, as an upstanding foreigner would never do such a thing. I’m sure Bobby Maxwell would agree with me; if he were alive today.
