The United Kingdom isn’t much of a manufacturing hub these days, except for… computers? Yes, the Raspberry Pi Foundation, which makes ultra-cheap computers for educational purposes, has  built more than a million of the things in the UK over the last year (following a few months’ production in China). Some 1.75 million units have now been sold and, with partners such as Google(s goog) continuing to join in the fun, the platform continues to become more useful.

Presumably you are unaware then that the UK, with a very small population, remains the 7th largest manufacturer in the world. We just don’t tend to blow our own trumpet.
