This project is intended to describe the history of the long-derided industrial behemoth that was British Leyland.
A series of entries will cover the histories of the brands which comprised British Leyland; Rover, Land Rover, Austin, Morris and MG, Wolseley, Riley, Jaguar, Daimler, Standard and Triumph. These entries will focus on the beginnings of each manufacturer, milestones in their history and famous vehicles, as well as the status of the manufacturer today. Where relevant, the entries will also include notes on the political and industrial climates where this has influenced the manufacturers.
One entry will cover British Leyland as a whole, particularly focussing on the industrial and govermental issues which it was infamous for.
Entries still to be started:

More will be added as soon as the rough notes I have on my PC are anything like readable!
