ChrisDyer2 5pts The U.K. has for many years, especially during the Blair years, maintained an active policy to grow the service industry with a post socialist political dogma. Sadly this policy may now be a liability. Stepping away from manufacturing means that intellectual property rights for evolved manufacturing processes now lie elsewhere. The U.K. can't simply step back into manufacturing. I suggest James Dyson be appointed a manufacturing tsar with a monumental budget to regain intellectual parity through a massive investment in quality product design.
