AMBASSADORS AT HOME
Many visitors to Britain and indeed many of Britain’s own critics have often complained of the BritiSher’s unwillingness to co-operate and get on with the job. I have found this to be completely lacking in truth—especially in the British Motor Industry.
Two years ago I purchased a Rover 2000 which I plan to take back to Canada in 1968. During my two years of ownership, due to business and Continental trips, I have had to avail myself of the excellent service provided by Roverepair of Seagrave Road. Many times I have had to request this service at very short notice and although Roverepair is inundated with work they have conscientiously and politely offered to be of service. Each time a most excellent job of maintenance has been carried out.
Although I am not returning to Canada until 1968 it is high time that these ill-informed critics be put right. I am sure that Rovers is typical of British service—as I have discovered by experience. When I return to Canada my acquaintances will certainly be told of the excellent example set by the British Motor Industry.
If permitted to do so I would like to commend publicly Mr. Guest of Roverepair for his ” diplomacy “—he is certainly an excellent AMBASSADOR. May I also add that British cars are as good as, if not better than, those produced elsewhere in the world.
It is not necessary to go abroad to he an AMBASSADOR. Goodwill can also be fostered at home. London, S.W.7. 1.r. ANDREW NELLESTM [I felt I had to publish this one!—Ed.]
