It wasn't until we checked on British inventions that we realised what we have done in the past.
Throughout history, the British have been responsible for many great inventions and are still commonly acknowledged to be among the best in the world when it comes to inventing. Over the past 50 years, according to Japanese research, more than 40 per cent of discoveries taken up on a worldwide basis originated in the United Kingdom.

Often it is the determination to succeed that matters and we should keep this in mind when it comes to Brexit.
