some things aren't 'widgets'. they depend on maintaining a skilled work force.

you can't buy a viyella shirt or an Aveling Barford dumper truck nowadays.

you can still buy the trashy make of car that are so badly made they have contributed to the premature deaths of two of my family.

the wonderful standards maintained and regularly championed in these threads never have seemed that bloody marvellous to me. i think standards were higher when we set them ourselves.
