Default Boris's bus related jinxes continue

"One of Northern Ireland's biggest employers faces a crunch week as
Wrightbus, which employs 1,400 staff, attempts to stave off collapse by
securing a last-minute rescue deal.

Mounting financial problems at the Ballymena-based company have left it
looking for a buyer, with the Chinese engineering group Weichai and a
firm led by the JCB heir, Jo Bamford, understood to be the suitors in
talks. However, local MP Ian Paisley told the BBC on Friday he
understood talks with the two potential buyers had failed to reach a
conclusion."
