    Who mentioned Brexit? You did. Honestly some people. And no they don't save thousands of lives. Hundreds? Eh no... 10 or 20.. maybe. Exaggeration and then some.

    Of course the designs are perfect. Why would you design something to fail? Maintaining it is a different matter, which is something that was known to the manufacturer in this case.

    Bet you they tried to brush that under the carpet as quickly as possible.


    See the problem with Brexit is skills are fleeing the UK. Brain drain is well under way.

    Well there you go, Russian seats or British seats. Let's see who they choose.

    If people like Rupert Murdoch, Nigel Farage, George Galloway, Nick Griffin and Marine Le Pen want Britain to leave the EU. Where does that put you?

    I thought we were talking aero engineering.

    Bentley - overpriced VWs IMHO. Christ I hope they haven't installed any Bosch cheat ware...

    Personally if I had the money for a new one I would get something like a F Pace instead. And for an older one, in the £30k area, an supercharged XK8.

    EU to dictate regulations even with a Hard Brexit

    ...at the end of the day the EU will be dictating regulations to the UK whether they want it or not.

    The only way the UK can truly be free is to trash half of its exports.
