A DeLorean. See SWNS story SWBOOK: Margaret Thatcher refused to bail out the struggling firm behind the DeLorean car in the 1980s, a new book revealed yesterday (Weds). The DeLorean story tells how then-PM Thatcher refused to save the struggling car firm after being told about possible illegal activity at the car company’s Belfast HQ. Thatcher turned her back on the ailing company and refused to grant a multi-million pound bail-out that would have saved 1,500 jobs. The DeLorean Story, by former senior manager Nick Sutton, tells how Thatcher was informed that £11.3 million ($17.65million) was missing from the company books, which was presumed to have been pilfered by company director John DeLorean.
