Re: Avast

@Doctor Syntax

Stop the explaining.

The article was about British companies being sold.

And Avast should not have been mentioned at all because it's not a British company.

Not your fault either.

And it you look a at LSE you find this text there "The main market is home to over 1,300 large companies from 60 countries"

And if you look at the FTSE 100 Index like here;

You find non British companies there too including Avast and properly mentioned as Czech and bought by NortonLifeLock (Symantec once).

"Avast Software s.r.o. is a Czech multinational cybersecurity software company headquartered in Prague, Czech Republic that researches and develops computer security software, machine learning and artificial intelligence. Avast has more than 435 million monthly active users[2] and the second largest market share among anti-malware application vendors worldwide as of April 2020.[3] The company has approximately 1,700 employees across its 25 offices worldwide.[2] In July 2021, NortonLifeLock, an American cybersecurity company, announced that it is in talks to merge with Avast Software.

"when Airbus planned to acquire Bombadier.."

There was no such plan, it was only about the Bombardier CSeries.

"Airbus partnership

The stiff competition, slow business and ultimately the dumping petition by Boeing paved the way for Bombardier to close a partnership with Airbus in October 2017.[30] Bombardier CEO predicted that the partnership would significantly accelerate sales as it would bring certainty to the CSeries programme and increase the level of confidence through the Airbus's global scale, which would take the programme to new heights.

On 16 October 2017, Airbus and Bombardier announced that Airbus would acquire a 50.01% majority stake in the CSALP partnership, with Bombardier keeping 31% and Investissement Québec 19%, to expand in an estimated market of more than 6,000 new 100- to 150-seat aircraft over 20 years."

And eventually Bombardier sold its shares in that partnership.

"After reassessing its participation in January 2020, Bombardier exited the A220 programme in February 2020, selling its share to Airbus for $591 million. Airbus thus owned 75% of the programme; the remaining 25% of shares were held by Investissement Québec. Under the acquisition terms Airbus acquired Bombardier's option to buy out Investissement Québec's share from 2023, with a revised option date of 2026. Airbus also agreed to acquire A220 and A330 work package production capabilities from Bombardier in Saint-Laurent, to be taken through the Airbus subsidiary, Stelia Aerospace."

Yes I agree with your comment but I would still like to point out than you are a bit careless claiming the lithium batteries are a British invention.

Please use for instance the Wikipedia to understand the history better.

It all eventually comes down to this.

"in 1987, Akira Yoshino patented what would become the first commercial lithium-ion battery using an anode of "soft carbon" (a charcoal-like material) along with Goodenough's previously reported LCO cathode and a carbonate ester-based electrolyte. In 1991, using Yoshino's design, Sony began producing and selling the world's first rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The following year, a joint venture between Toshiba and Asashi Kasei Co. also released their lithium-ion battery.".

Re: No mention of anything even remotely looking like an "industrial strategy"......

"..building wings for Airbus".

That seems to pop up every now and then, but in reality that factory is an Airbus factory fully owned by Airbus.

While some seem to believe a British company is building wings for Airbus like RR who actually is builds engines for Airbus among others.

I mention this because some years ago a British kid or gammon, a brexiteer, wrote that should Airbus decide to move the production on wings to mainland Europe then the British would never reveal the technology behind building wings.

"exporting at pretty much maximum capacity to France, Netherlands, Belgium, and Norway. "

What do you base that claim on, and I suppose you talk about electricity.

Please leave a link to that claim.

Looking at 2021 where we have government information you find this.

"Electricity supply increased in 2021, due to higher demand for electricity, but UK generation fell with higher supply from net imports. Total electricity supplied in 2021 was 333.2 TWh, with net imports of 24.6 TWh, 7.4 per cent of electricity supplied. Electricity generation fell to a record low of 308.7 TWh in 2021, 1.2 per cent less than in 2020.

Total net imports were a record 24.6 TWh in 2021. Total imports were 28.7 TWh in 2021, up 28.4 per cent compared to 2020, while total exports were down 7.0 per cent on 2020 to 4.2 TWh. Interconnector capacity rose to 7.4 GW in 2021 with new operational cables between the UK and Norway (North Sea Link), and a second link to France (IFA 2)."

You seem to assume Britain is only exporting electricity.

Still these are the facts for 2021, 2022 not of course available yet.

"Electricity demand increased in 2021 to 334.2 TWh, up by 1.2 per cent from 2020. The increase was primarily a result of the response to the Covid-19 pandemic, which severely restricted the activity of business and industry in 2020 but had a smaller effect in 2021.

Re: UK rejoining the EU?

There is of course also Denmark who decided to keep the Danish crown.

But I still would not claim it's "rubbish" as there is really no way to know how different countries would react.

But if there is today a rule that demands a "new" member to join the euro zone that rule can be changed if the member states agree.

And after all, there are hardly any rules specifically for rejoining the EU.

I don't think the pound would be the biggest question at all.

I think one of the bigger questions would be about howto prevent Britain from becoming a "hand grenade", never knowing if it is coming or going before every election.

My first "demand" would be that you get rid of the fptp, not that I know if stuff like that ever enter any such discussions

But what I find so very English is the deeply inbuilt assumption that joining the euro would be a bad thing.

Seriously, what is that based on.

Both in Sweden and Denmark business would have preferred the euro because they can count, and even if they knew they would lose the ability to devaluate the currency.

"we're being forced to pay".

Who has forced you.

Hincley Point C is built, financed by EDF Energy and China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN).

And for the cost to consumers:

"EDF has negotiated a guaranteed fixed price – a "strike price" – for electricity from Hinkley Point C under a government sanctioned Contract for difference (CfD). The price is £92.50/MWh (in 2012 prices),[18][78] which will be adjusted (linked to inflation – £106/MWh in 2021[72]) during the construction period and over the subsequent 35 years tariff period. The base strike price could fall to £89.50/MWh if a new plant at Sizewell is also approved.[18][78] High consumer prices for energy will hit the poorest consumers hardest according to the Public Accounts Committee.".

If that is a high price we don't really know yet.

Re: Reap what you sow

@Justthefacts

Why you don't do any duedilligence is much beyond me but anyway.

From AZ own information:

"To help meet global demand for COVID-19 vaccine, AstraZeneca rapidly conducted due diligence with more than 60 potential partners to ultimately build a global supply network of more than 25 proven manufacturing organisations in 15 countries with the capability and capacity to supply the vaccine. With each partner, the technology transfer process began immediately to ensure that not a minute was wasted in our quest to rapidly establish commercial manufacturing ahead of regulatory approval/authorisation. During this process, our technical experts worked around the clock with our supply partners to transfer our validated protocols and standard methods for vaccine production. As our teams were unable to travel due to the pandemic, we used virtual technology to provide real-time technical support and coaching to production teams on each site."

From the Wikipedia:

"As of March 2021 the vaccine active substance (ChAdOx1-SARS-COV-2) is being produced at several sites worldwide,[82] with AstraZeneca claiming to have established 25 sites in 15 countries.[83] The UK sites are Oxford and Keele with bottling and finishing in Wrexham.[82] Other sites include the Serum Institute of India at Pune.[82] The Halix site at Leiden was approved by the EMA on 26 March 2021, joining three other sites approved by the EU.".

"AstraZeneca has its corporate headquarters in Cambridge, United Kingdom, and its main research and development (R&D) centres are in Cambridge (UK), Gaithersburg (Maryland, US), Gothenburg (Sweden) and Warsaw (Poland)."

"However, the contract that AstraZeneca reached with the UK was very similar to that it reached with the EU, and it also contained the phrase "best reasonable efforts"; the UK contract was signed on 28 August 2020, a day after the contract with the EU.[146] The key difference seems to be that AstraZeneca entered into a preliminary agreement with the U.K. back in May 2020 which arranged for "the development of a dedicated supply chain for the U.K."[147] The failure to produce the vaccine in the anticipated quantities contributed to the low vaccination rates of vulnerable populations of the European Union at the beginning of the outbreak of more virulent variants of SARS-CoV-2 in early 2021."

"Lawsuits

In April 2021, the European Commission announced that it would sue Astra Zeneca for delaying the timely delivery of Vaxzevria at a time when "every vaccine counts, because every vaccine can save lives".[107][108] In September 2021, the lawsuit was finally settled with AstraZeneca agreeing to deliver 60 million doses of vaccines to EU member states by October, 75 million by the end of the year, and 65 million more by April 2022."

Re: Reap what you sow

No that is not true. Britain followed EU rules and did something any other EU country could have done, I think, was it, Hungary who did it too.

The 27 understood it would be madness for every country to compete individually for the same vaccine and cooperated for a joint big order.

This has all been cleared up long ago in Britain too.

What you Brits should start to understand is that the "fantastic rollout" is just a smoke screen to hide the fact that Boris blew it badly.

You did worse than France and Germany and many other EU countries too. The numbers tell it all.

You still find on YouTube, Boris showing with his hands how the Covid epidemic would just past through, taken on the chin.

He might have gotten that idea from the Swedes who made such a decision.

They did understand later it was a mistake but they were never able to mend the error. The numbers shows it very clearly today.

In the USA, also with not so stellar numbers, we have Trump who claimed he invented two or was it three vaccines, and some Americans no doubt believe it still.
