    Moot point now! British government and banks don't support British industry. Result: much of it isn't even British anymore. Most Britons don't seem to care much either. :dunno:

    I wouldn't worry too much about the virus itself. The survival rate is over 97%, and some say it's much higher than that.

    Certainly:

    p. 5 photo caption: "...and an Aldis on a SMLE." It is a PPCo.

    p. 6 photo caption: "Warner & Swayze...." It is Warner & Swasey; this error is repeated throughout the text also.
