Less than two weeks ago, I warned about the risk of massive job losses at Jaguar Land Rover and "the deafening silence" from Solihull's MP over the threat of job losses at Solihull's largest employer.
So far, Julian Knight has said nothing about JLR since CEO Ralf Speth announced that 10,000 job losses were on the cards.
That so many jobs are under threat is a direct result of this Conservative government's inability to come up with a coherent Brexit proposal that will help secure local jobs here in the UK.
For someone who claims that "a big part of his previous job" was "making economic stories interesting and accessible to everybody" (Observer, 4.10.2018), Julian Knight's silence on this matter tells us loud and clear that he is more interested in dancing down the aisle with Theresa May than saving local jobs at JLR's Lode Lane plant.
Solihull deserves better than this. Thousands of local jobs are at risk and our MP keeps talking about 5G broadband and Channel 4 moving to Birmingham - anything but jobs at JLR! Solihull residents demand better from their local MP. This one, sadly, is a disappointment.
