    Great news. Is that in hard currency or mickey-mouse money terms?

    Suddenly we've built a manufacturing export industry that took Germany 30+ years. Go Britain!
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    A car manufacturing industry which is about to be decimated by Tesla model 3's?

    Looking forward for the promised interest rate increase and the imminent housing market collapse.

    - hold that thought... Youtube is full of peeps complaining about reliability and build quality. Doors not closing in the same position, replacing failed parts 2-3 months later. So in built design issues not just failing replaceable parts. They're doing an excellent PR job covering up the issues. There's also a number of programs about the workers in Tesla doing insane shifts, up to 22 hours. Little wonder there's issues. Whereas in Germany there's strict controls on working hours or rather respect for them.

    The German car industry is built on quality, the yanks are nowhere near matching that level of process experience and it shows.

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that.

    Have you seen the interior of the Model 3? No wonder they kept it secret for so long - plastic fantastic with a DIYesque tablet slapped in the middle

    It is a big step forward.

    In 1997 almost all cameras were analog. 10 years later almost all were digital.

    Suggest you read the background of the self proclaimed twat from the thinktank.
    Brexit: Pay more to get less and having less money to pay for it.
    Brexiters: I want the rest of the UK to suffer and deprive the young of their future.
