Churchill’s Bomb: How the United States Overtook Britain in the First Nuclear Arms Race | Foreign Affairs.

 

This article started me thinking.

 

Of course, the UK was effectively broke after WWII, and the US had insisted on the dismantling of the British Empire as a pre-requisite to US intervention in WWII. Close review of history shows us that Churchill was decisive and took enormous risks. Post WWII, the UK had a left-wing government and the decay started.

 

The UK has had many brilliant inventions but has frequently been poor on commercial innovation.

 

Given the omni-smables of three plus years of David Cameron‘s leadership, any thoughts on a proper trajectory of reform for the UK?
