    the aerospace industry because it was an 'industry' so they knew all about it, right? Terribly, terribly WRONG. Aircraft design is 90 % higher math, and 10% PURE inspiration...you let the finance guys worry about the rest. Sadly, the Conservatives knew little of either higher math OR creative genius.

    Governments that followed tried hard, but a ten year lag might as well be a century in aviation!
