What does Britain live on?

Sunset for the North Sea I heard today that the biggest contributor the chancellor’s tax is the oil industry.

But hang on. Haven’t New Labour been telling us for years that we have to get used to working in new ways. Britain should not worry about losing it’s engineering and it’s motor industry. We needn’t worry that we have no capacity to build power stations. It is irrelevant that the trains that carry us to work are made by Germans or that our computers are made by China. We are the future! We are the ones who embrace new technology. The world will knock on our door for…..what?

 

Britain has become a nation of management consultants and public relations executives.

The oil is running out and we will soon find out if Britain can survive on intangibles alone.
