Can someone please explain to me, how can we rebalance our economy from relying on a financial sector to a manufacturing base, by allowing some of our most successful companies to be taken over by large foreign companies, some of which are owned or partly owned by their governments.
Some of our most important and strategic firms are now in the hands of foreign companies where any profits revert back to their own headquarters not to the UK PLC.
How long can this carry on, until some real harm is done?
Or is this just another example of our general lack of ambition which as been on a downward curve over the last couple of decades?
This situation would not be tolerated in other counties.
