@duck Yes, my friend’s tractor got cloned and he got a speeding ticket for doing whatever it is in km/hr round the M50 in Dublin. At least they believed him when he said that his tractor couldn’t go that fast.
OMG do your history. There were plenty of Labour govts at the time who also starved those industries of investment. They also had far higher rates of tax- both corporation and personal – then they do now and still could not afford the investment.
