Nissan is not going anywhere.
Nissan must like us. Well in fact it does because executive vice president Andy Palmer told me so.
It isn’t every Monday morning that I spend enjoying a conference call with someone who has an important job. Whilst I decide whether to use a red or black Biro to take notes, he’s a qualified engineer with rather more crucial decisions to make.
So, in response to my last blog about Nissan’s relationship with the UK and Carlos Ghosn’s comments, Mr Palmer wanted to make the situation clear. The point he made strongly to me is that this was a hypothetical question to which the head of the company gave a fairly innocuous, non-committal answer.
