The problem is, as we run slide down the other side of peak industrial scoiety as a result of lowered access to cheap raw materials necessary for production of consumer items, this in turn causes manufactures to make items to ever tighter engineering/material tolerances and consequent shorter lifespans of items to compensate.

The problem of "disposable" mass produced consumer items is set to escalate, not diminish. The only way that could be avoided is via systemic changes in our economic models and also, because it is connected, how our money is created. If these things do not change, nothing changes.

The problem the UK has is that the City finds it more profitable to make money from money and bits of useless paper, derivatives, rather than invest is capital producing industry. That is why so much of the technology invented in this country goes abroad for exploitation. The twats in the city should be taxed out of existence if they invest in anything other than UK technology.

Umm... the EU were planning to do precisely that. But we left. My guess is these 2 things are, as Private Eye would say, probably Related And I Think We Should Be Told.
