Blog: Dave LeggettEx-Ford boss David Thursfield

I never met David Thursfield, Ford's head of international operations a decade or so ago, but I do remember his reputation for being something of a fiery character.

Below is a link to a report about David Thursfield's latest spot of bother in the courts.
