^^^ add in the 80's and 90's i.e. the thatcher years when every potentially profitable industry was sold off to line the Government and their rich chums pockets, short term of course and the UK was left with nothing, not even social housing and this is still seen by the level of homelessness and no homes to put them in. Add into the fact that many landlords won't have people on benefits in their property and it all adds up.

 

Back to industry though, so many industries that were feeding the Government £millions were sold off for pennies, if managed more effectively and the efficiencies increased they could have kept these industries going and made £trillions in annual revenue, keeping our taxes down, encouraging investment into said industries and potentially making the UK a real powerhouse of the world. Instead every asset we had that was worth turning around into a constant revenue stream is now enjoyed by foreign companies and in many cases Governments.

 

Were doomed

Do you remember people saying that anybody could own a small business under Thatcher? All you had to do was buy a large company. She was fond of saying that there was no future in manufacturing. Look at the number of companies recently that have been knocking out ppe for the nurses. Everywhere from kitchen tables to Nissan here in Sunderland. Must have turned out a lot more that the duff lot from Turkey!

hahaha, Would you believe that it is a Facebook post from Sunderland Antiquarian Society. You would think they would be a dry dusty lot, but there is some wickedness there. You can imagine the comments coming in, so Sund Antiquarians came back with it being a weapon of (m)ass destruction. It's a bit viscious looking isn't it!

I can clearly understand how that nightmarish device could cure constipation (one glance at that would give anyone the sh*ts!!)  :eek:

 

BUT...the "quick relief of piles and prostate trouble" might be a bit less convincing!!!  :frantic:

It may well do.  I can't see it being Metric.  You are asking for a friend, obviously.  ;)
