Re: Italy makes quite a bit of sense for a semiconductor fab

Ah, how can I compete with so persuasive a case for Italy.

I am however disappointed that the UK isn't being considered. Greater opportunities for state aid, established prowess in chip design (ARM and the Raspberry Pi, even if you ignore older designs), the advantages of Free Ports coming soon and access to markets the EU haven't yet penetrated.

Plus frankly the UK needs better self-sufficiency in semiconductors. Italy is welcome to buy them from us too - or we'll swap them for Maserati cars.
