Re: Brexit part 7: The Frog who Aspired to Become as Big as the Ox

The libdems have a position fit for a minority party. Give us a majority (3XX MPs) and we'll revoke ! Knowing full well that isn't in the cards, and if somehow it happened, then that would prove there is probably a majority for that position. Well be careful with that thought process, a majority in...

Re: Improvements to the Boeing 787-8

If they are moving the existing 788 to have more commonality with the 789 process I suspect a shrink will be too heavy with too much structure, especially if it is being done for ease of manufacture, you would be back to the 787-3. If we are talking about the NMA, big question would be whether the b...
