    The state of Britain?

    Political or not, you’ve got to agree that we live in a changing world and indeed a changing country, the ebb and flow of our nation is changing in drastic terms weekly, it’s a new country we’re all learning to live in.  Sixty years ago, the country was radically different, a stunning landscape of engineering and export, but today’s Britain is something entirely different.

    We’re no longer a manufacturing nation and the skills developed by those who pioneered those crafts which made us great are sadly dying and we have no one to take over and continue the trend.  I was watching a programme earlier and it made me wonder something.  We have a great history of keeping heritage alive; a case in point are those that run steam railways or preserve vehicles for future generations but what happens why they die? Who takes over? Do we people these days who are interested in running a steam railway or learning how a traction engine works?

    Or are we living in a nation that is computer obsessed and doesn’t want to embrace and nurture for our past, this is question without an answer at present.
