Hello people, and welcome to the world of dreams and fantasies.
I have to profess, the world, post BRexit has left me a trifle confused. I understand the basics, but the details have me flummoxed.
I grew up as a young adult under Thatcher's Britain, it was NOT a place of hope for most, although it was a place of plenty for a few.
I remember many industries being destroyed literally because they were not "competitive" according to the Tories of the 80's.
Shipyards were destroyed; Steelworks were destroyed; Coal industry was destroyed; Car industry was left to die.
All, as I remember it, were destroyed under the guise of competitiveness with Europe.
My question is this: Are any of our old industries valid as a way to move forward in a post EU world?
Could we revive any of those industries?
Should we go back and have a look at those industries for which we were reknowned, pre-EU?
The world has changed, should we look back at what we once had and re-assess?
I am asking from a complete position of ignorance here, please don't think there is an agenda, I truly want to know what we can salvage from the
obvious ruins of our recent past.
