    [​IMG] British PM Boris Johnson will spend £18 billion within five years in research and development, to promote a “new wave of economic growth” after Brexit. According to The Times, British PM will spend £800m for defence agency, a scientific research body modelled on US’s Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The “advanced research projects agency” will be based outside the golden triangle of London, Oxford and Cambridge. It also wants to set up a centre of scientific excellence, modelled on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in the north.

    The problem is that we build these great institutions, and then some johnny foreigner comes along, buys it and then asset strips it to hell and back.. that mindset needs to change into long term strategic institution development ..

    Yes, there is too much laissez-faire/free market policy in Britain. sometime it's even shocking.
