"Jim, your links relevant to manufacturing are years out of date."
Get stuffed Keith - when those industries die they diew - when the jobs are gone they're gone.
My links range from 1999 to 2016 across the board
The earliest is Textiles (1999) are you seriously suggesting that a new textile industry has miraculously emerged from the ashes phoenix-like?
Of all the industries, we know that our clothing comes almost exclusively from abroad.
Steel - 2016 the rest 2013 and 2011
It was announced ten years ago that our shipping industry had passed the point of no return
Are we all of a sudden producing car components instead of assembling them?
Not only do the industries die, but the jobs, the skills, the experience, the knowledge - and the loyalty that went into those industries dies with them - forever - you're quite likely to find a skilled worker, or administrator from these former industries serving behind a till in Sainsburys.
Our industries have been killed of for profit - not for the well-being of us all, but to make the wealthy few more wealthy
I couldn't open your last link by the way, not a subscriber to the Fanancial Times, but teh heading I could access told it as it is UK manufacturing retains bright spots despite overall gloom
Bright SPOTs indicate measles, not healthy industry -eexactly what has changed recently to show we are on a roll industial-wise.
It is predicted that we are probably heading for another recession as the economy is throwing its lot in with property again - that caused the last crash.
Why do you do this?
You defend and excuse everything that's shitty, wrong, evil, unfair and unjust in this world on principle - even to the point of defending mass-murder and State Terrorism.
What kind of person does that?
You are not inteseted in facts - you are only interested in proving taht you are right and everybody else is wrong.
And you call me obsessive.
