The PM has put a spoke in the wheel of new car dealers with his announcement that he has had discussions with BMW officials in Germany with regard to leasing vehicles for the Summit of the Americas and the CHOGM.
The President of the New Car Dealers Association, Philip Knaggs is quoted in the Business Guardian as saying he is 'flabbergasted' that the government would choose this option, since it would cost taxpayers close to $35M TTD.
Well Mr Knaggs, maybe he read our earlier piece on this issue and noted that your offer sounded a bit suspect.
Or maybe it would be better to just cut out the middle man and go straight to the manufacturer?
Or that it was difficult to swallow giving your association between $50M and $100M TTD?
Hmmmmmmm. Your pick.
