    No point to miss. It could be either depending where you were going to put the point. It could be why we can't make anything as we all miss the point.

    uk could still make things etc . but labour is too high a price ,management is pathetic.
    plus as we lost the empire we lost our customers . uk industry was collapsing even in the 1950,s ,thats why austin and morris started bmc . others were falling as well.
    never mind other countries are heading the same way. many only build things that are really made in other countries .

    The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.

    Same thing here terry,royal victoria belfast almost 5 years behind on new wing with building faults,ventelation, water, and bad construction in some parts which have to be rebuilt.
    Now some bits that were built in are out of date and must be removed and redone,i beleave these are electrical outlets for some medical goods,price is now about 5 times what was set for job.

    Yes we can

    Disagree guys we can design anything,it works! Build it , it works and performs to spec! Do it on time and to budget, not a cat in hells chance. Reason, to much concentration on the bottem line (accountants are not managers).
    Solution : What do you call 500 accountants at the bottem of the sea? A REALLY GOOD START.

    Our new sick children’s hospital should have opened last year. Which in this case, makes your comment incorrect.

    Carillon have a lot to answer for, their directors should be doing time and their possessions taken by proceeds of crime act.

    Second visit to Golden Jubilee Hospital last Friday with Mrs R. It is an impressive building and very slick and organised hospital, pity they cannot all be the same.
