    and I understand things can get better, but I think they will get a lot worse before it gets better.

    You say build in Britain... some stuff can't be done here. there isnt the know-how how to do it, no R&D on it etc...
    certain countries have been specialists in certain things, that's what makes a country unique... Britain can't possible build everything required.

    I wish it would be possible, but I know it isnt.
    what cant be done here?
    at least dick turpin had the decency to wear a mask!

    R&D.. for example, telecomms components, 3G, 4G, 5G... China leads all that, Ericson, nokia, Huawey.... they are all market leaders, there's no British company producing or devolping these type of things.

    and it's not something Britain can just catch up

    unfortunately that's the reality.
    this is only a little example

    we dont live back 40 years ago.
    technology has advanced and people live on it.

    Again guys, I'm not against it or trying to be an a$$hole about it.

    I'm just showing my views from where I'm sitting in a technbology perspective.
    of course I would like everything to be made in Britain, jobs for everyone, economy grows, etc, etc.... but I dont think its possible. certainly not possible on some things.

    the prices we get are in Euros for some reason, I dont know why.

    but I think the comment/question was in relation to the pound crashing. if we get stuff from other coutnries, that stuff is going to be more expensive now.

    and then that led to the discussion about not being able to produce it here, which then lead to the telecoms market leaders, which one is from China.
