A Sad History

tr12-1-2400shI just finished reading this excellent book:

https://www.amazon.com/Slow-Death-British-Industry-Sixty-Year/dp/1849544638/ref=cm_sw_em_r_dp_w_d_Kbf2xb9A676V7_tt

It’s a sad reflection on the appalling waste of Britain’s technical ingenuity over the past fifty years. I have a personal interest in the topic, having worked for some of the (now defunct) companies mentioned in the book.

It’s perhaps not surprising that so many of my fellow Imperial College graduates are now working in the USA, but what a waste of Britain’s educational investment in all of us!
