It's not that we can't do these things, it's that corporations can make more money if they do these things abroad. Same goes for players, cheaper to buy from abroad. Its large companies and corporations that don't give a sh1t about the country, just money.
It's not as if we can't make cars, electrical goods, machinery etc. We could probably make higher quality goods here than in most places in the world, it's just not good for profits. The blame lays squarely at the feet of greedy corporate @rseholes. Same for most things actually.
They cock up everything by investing in dodgy schemes in other countries that would never be legal here, then come back to the British tax payer to bail them out. The whole point of the free market is that if you invest badly and fail, you go under. Otherwise they pretty much just have a free run to make any crappy investments they want.
The bailout was incredibly ridiculous, bailing out companies and corporations that had cocked themselves over. They would have been better giving the public the money and letting them get the economy going again by investing in whatever they want rather than in companies hat had failed.
I'm actually considering voting for the socialist party in the upcoming elections its got so bad.
Lol that got a bit ranty there, but you can see the general jist of why things are so backward in the country nowadays.
When you put it that way, it all sounds so natural. Not that we need a great empire anymore, but when you look at names like Rolls Royce, Norton, Triumph, Jaguar and so on, it gets me a bit misty...same as when I think of Greaves, Hoddle, Gascoigne and Nicholson! Just old age, I suppose. But what about the cricket thing? The most upsetting thing I find is that no other Test nation would think of playing so many players not born in their countries, not even Bangladesh! I know this is a football sight but I feel passionate about all of this, be it football, cricket, boxing or tennis. We are a country of some 40,000,000. Some of us must be talented?
