Great stuff. Thankfully Thatcher's ambition for Britain has been realised as we no longer make anything for export except futures contracts and bad debt! :)

A boon to man indeed.

@ john, there are still a few bikes being built in the UK.

It is fascinating how vertically integrated the place was.

Fantastic. The Nottingham Raleigh factory was still operating when I was a kid in the early 1970s, and I remember a school visit to the place: technology had moved on a little though - and a bit more safety equipment in evidence, as i recall.....

No wonder that so many of those rock-solid, steel beasts are still running to this day - lots in Oxford!

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
