The BBC Made in Britain video is the very definition of self-reassuring propaganda. Some choice quotes:
"But hey, if you find enough small profitable niches, you can build a large affluent economy."
"China may be able to make specialist bikes like these some day, but they won't compete with us while we have an advantage in design, skills, and branding."
"Brompton shows that dynamic companies and dynamic economies are built on the back of doing things others can't do, rather than competing with them in things they can."
*Wow*, that is head-in-the-sand. Keep Calm and Carry On! All this despite the Brompton design team guy himself giving level-headed and well-reasoned comments in the video.
