The report by the UK National Defence Association (UKNDA), an independent body, quotes the government adviser as saying: “Defence, aerospace, manufacturing and engineering have no real value to us.
“Only high-quality professional services, financial services and the City of London have any real value and they should be supported at all costs. The rest of the country can be turned over to tourism.”
Er, what? For a moment there, I thought I was reading The Daily Mash, but no, the government really does believe that the City of London is the only part of the UK that deserves to be "saved".
I wonder how well this will go down with our friends from the north? With the brothers?
