Overseas companies don't invest in the UK for the benefit of your country or it's workers.

No free lunches.

Shetland spaceport: Rocket firm Skyrora agrees deal that could see first journeys to space from the UK next year​



Extract:
A rocket company has signed a deal with a Shetland spaceport that could see the first journeys to space from the UK next year.

Skyrora, a rocket company with its headquarters in Edinburgh, has agreed a multi-launch deal over the next decade for the site on Unst, the most northerly of the Shetland Islands.
The company hopes to send its 23-metre long, 56-tonne XL rocket to deliver satellites into orbit from 2022.

No rocket has ever been sent to space from the UK, but Skyrora hopes the agreement with the former Shetland Space Centre, now known as the SaxaVord Spaceport, will help it deliver up to 16 launches a year by 2030.

Once operational, the SaxaVord spaceport is expected to create 140 jobs locally, with an additional 70 jobs across Shetland.

Of course they do but isn’t that how it works everywhere.......Europe doesn’t say no to Chinese investment.
If European leaders are dumb enough to rely on Russian gas then they are dumb enough to accept Chinese investments.

Face it, what does China produce that Europe cannot, albeit at a higher cost.

Oh bloody hell !! Shetland Spaceport?? Manned by sheep?
HS2 contract making pre cast concrete for tunnels up in Hartlepool to go down to London - that's Eco friendly, and when are they going to admit that HS2 won'tbe going anywhere near the East of the country to Leeds?

They rely on Russian gas because needs must. Germany is the largest user of Russian gas, how long would that industrial country last without it? They’ve ruled out nuclear plants on their territory.

As for Europe competing with China? Not a chance, the Chinese have already got their fingers in many of Europe’s pies. Plus Europeans couldn’t live on rice or noodles.

New North Wales paper mill pledges 463 jobs and economic spin-offs - but it wants residents' views​



An Italian-based firm wants to build a vast factory on Deeside, not far from the existing Shotton Mill where ambitious developments are also planned.

Residents in Deeside are being asked for their views on a planned paper mill employing up to 463 people.

Plans for the 700,000 sq ft facility at the Northern Gateway (Airfields) site were announced by Italian-based, Industrie Cartarie Tronchetti Group (ICT) earlier this year.

The mill, on a 50-acre site, will manufacture paper products such as toilet rolls, kitchen towels, napkins, handkerchiefs and industrial uses.

These kind of investments always puzzle me.

Surely, if the Italians can see advantage in investing then why can’t the Brits?

Does UK lack the funds or technology to undertake such projects?

And where will the raw materials come from to feed this smelly project?
