The current need for bridge-financing for GM’s European operations is rooted in a catastrophic economic crisis, the worst of its kind in more than 70 years. Given the significance of the situation politically and for society, it’s only natural that rumor, speculation and urban myths should begin to circulate at this time. In addition to informed reporting based on fact there is also misinformation and repetition of statements that are clearly not based on fact.

To support informed discussion and fact-based reporting, GM and Opel & Vauxhall have launched a website, which challenges the more commonly reported misconceptions and addresses each one with the pertinent facts. The site is a resource for the media, for bloggers and anyone who reports our news. It is also for employees, suppliers, dealers and anyone who has an interest in our business in Europe. The aim of the site is to provide all of our stakeholders with access to the facts. allows sharing and social bookmarking of the content and encourages visitors to join the discussion at, the GM Europe Executive blog.
