China has landed a rover on Mars
This makes me feel that China is more technologically advanced than Europe in general, and Britain in particular.
I remember when China was an economic basket case. But now they have lifted themselves out of poverty, had their industrial revolution, and reached into space - ahead of Britain!
We need to think about how to catch up with China, and I think that the best way would be to join the EU, and work in partnership with France, Germany and the other 25 nations.
