It’s a fair argument if we have enough clout / bargaining power left after this mess to actually deal with the US, or India. We don’t produce anything really, it’s all services and arms. It seems we may lose position as finance epicentre, and once that happens I don’t see what clout we have left after arms sales..
I suppose we’ll have to hang on to our hats for a few years..
London is full of non-elites, and very poor people also. That London brush doesn’t tar The actual elites run the media (murdoch empire, rothemere), these are bizarrely global citizens with no tie to a country, rather profits and lower taxes and it was this elite that pretty much made the case for brexit. Guardian reading dogooders who live in London have no power and far from elite.. The scary part is your line is the exact one pumped out by their papers..
Parkez - re Spire - we're a supplier to them, not a partner so it's on them to sell in and make big, which they seem to be starting very well at...Don't underplay the work Cap would have done to even get to the point of testing and them wanting to use our tech! Once it's in, it's all on them to sell through. A great shop window for CAPXX tech
To mitigate, if you look at many tech companies who have great ideas and products, their physical launches are often much less on point than the product. Point being getting logistics, supply chain and delivery all singing on the same sheet can often take a bit of work.
Thinking also if our ballpark estimate of 400,000 spire tags ($1 p/u @ 0.4m order) - that isn't very many in the actual marketplace if that number is divided by actual products (1/3/8 packs) 25,000 8 packs + 50,000 x3 + 50,000 x1 compared to the potential market size.I do hope we hear of a reorder before Christmas. If this kicks off, this could be a multi-million pound stream annually. If this does get FDA (no idea why it needs that being not a food or drug) approval and US Govt contracts, that for me is bigger than Apple on this product.
One of 20 irons in fire. Pull a few more out before Christmas and it's turkey with all the trimmings over a Christmas sandwich at Pret.
