Interesting how he completely failed to address the issue.

His response will be in two parts because it's too
exhausting to right more than one paragraph per day.

He couldn’t comment on Wed because it would’ve interrupted his midday break.

He went on to point out since Titan is "20 times smaller" than "French technology leader" Michelin, which is "35 times more profitable", Mr Taylor "could have learnt and gained enormously from a French base."

OK, so why doesn't Michelin put up the money if it's such a great investment?

Michelin was the best company I ever worked for. Leaving that job is one of my biggest regrets (my wife got transferred to another state and she had a higher-paying job at the time). It was non-union and the reason it stayed that was was by treating workers like human beings. No American company that I’ve worked for since has ever done that.
