Workshop, not Casino

This is a very interesting comment on the state of manufacturing in the UK. The writer says that UK should be 'making things' (workshop) and not pushing bits of paper around in the financial markets which to all intents and purposes makes it a casino.

What manufacturing is there in the UK? My Geography lessons at school (admittedly this was rather a long time ago) taught me about the significance of shipbuilding in the UK. Where do you find a shipyard in the UK now?

It reminded me of a "blue-sky thinking" piece called Money, manufacturing, farming that I wrote nearly a year ago.

Then read it alongside this much earlier article by David Green, Director of Civitas. Tell me what you think.
