Jim to have an industrial base or a manufacturing base does not necessarily mean that it has to involve the heavy industries on the scale you seem to imagine.

I believe now that we have the fifth largest economy in the world according to five different surveys. Keith A's information is normally correct and he does provide real sources which are verifiable so if he provides sources {The Financial Times} that says "Britain is still easily one of the 10 biggest manufacturing nations in the world." Then who am I to say that they have got it wrong.
