Raleigh made a decision purely on profit to manufacture abroad. Nothing to do with militant trade unions just cheaper and highly profitable to produce abroad. No health and safety, sick pay, paid holidays etc. Raleigh is now owned by Derby Industries which is involved with George Sorros the man who broke the Pound when John Major was Prime Minister. It was the American owners who sold Sturmey to Sun Race for about 50 quid and the Lenton Road plant to Nottingham University! Corporate greed. venture capitalists and the stock exchange killed our industries off not trade unions. Please give us back Raleigh and take Margaret Thatcher in exchange.
