This is an example of British creativeness and excellence in engineering, it also demonstrates that complex and costly projects find a natural partner in Europe, the ESA.

I totally agree – our esteemed government in the UK (51st US state) of either red or blue rosette, has the tendency to roll over like an obedient puppy & does exactly what the yanks tell them!!!

After all – where did they get the Jet engine from in the first place?

They stole German rocket technology…the internet…..the light bulb….the internal combustion engine….

In fact…what HAS the US invented apart from mass over consumption and obesity???
