In the article it says how the company is going into "recievership." I'm not the expert speller but I think it's spelled "receivership." Could someone double check into this for me? Vash The Stampede 19:15, 15 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Yes, I before E except after C in the conventional American English spelling. I believe that generally in the UK its the 'cei' spelling as well, although there are some outdated things about the Irish Faroe islands where the spelling is truly something else. But I would support your suggestion. CBMeBe 16:15, 15 Apr 2005 (EST)

If you every spot a mistake like that feel free to fix it, after all this is a wiki - anyone can edit it. → CGorman (Talk) 20:08, 15 Apr 2005 (UTC)
The worst thing is that MG Rover was not put into receivership, it went into administration, which is very different. I typed the wrong word, d'oh! Dan100 (Talk) 07:07, 16 Apr 2005 (UTC)
PS that spelling rule is the same in British English too. I just can't spell. Dan100 (Talk) 07:08, 16 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Does anyone know any background on the British auto industry? How big was it when it peaked? Why do it go into decline? --Cronian 22:35, 15 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I used Wikipedia for a lot of the background info in this article. You could probably find more information about the industry there Dan100 (Talk) 07:07, 16 Apr 2005 (UTC)
