    EDIT: Although, there's really no point in a word limit if UKIP are just going to post the full thing as Nigel just did.
    200 posts down though, rather than getting the prominence of being the OP.

    Glad to see that the image used at the end was of an Airbus aircraft, one that heavily supports British industry, with the wings made in Wales and the Engines made in England by arguably the best jet engine manufacturer in the world and most certainly the most recognised.
    And all stuck together in Toulouse. A great example of European cooperation at its best.

    The left has the heart, and the right has the brain. I feel the TSR Liberals are an excellent balance of both.

    But then it's an ‘established parliamentary convention’ to promote individuals rather than parties in by-elections. I'm just saying don't call the kettle black…
    No it's not. Originally it was just party manifestos and eventually transitioned into personal manifestos. It's been done both ways and only called out recently.

    There was a motion to accept refugees, a bill to change the definition of nationality to allow more people to qualify, and goal music was banned at football matches.
    Accepting some more people into the country is not opening a border.

    The bill to ban goal celebration music did not pass, ergo we did not ban it.

    As I've said before it's not my area of expertise - the little I know is that of corporations. Ask TDA or Republic.
    Unless you're intent on harassing me of course


    Welll - in terms of commercial jets the Concorde and Boeing 747 are more likely to be the most well-recognised. In terms of fighter jets the English Harrier jet and F16/22 would be the most recognised.
    I'm meaning Rolls Royce vs Pratt and Whitney and I can't even remember what the minor major player is called, I was still referring to the British made engines rather than the aircraft, and the A380 is certainly going to be high up on the recognised list, I doubt many would be able to label an A340 despite being the only single decked quad engine commercial jet for instance, and the twin engines are even harder to distinguish unless you're a bit on an anorak.

    Indeed, I cannot remember for the life of me where the fuselage is made though, I do remember though that it is hell for the local infrastructure every couple of weeks when the parts get moved to Toulouse given that they are too big for the Beluga to fly them in so they have to close the roads for them to be carried in on tracked lorries at very slow speeds.

    I think most individuals could not identify an Airbus from a Boeing, but it is difficult sometimes when two similar aircraft are compared. There is not a lot of difference when the 757 is compared to the Tu-204, nor when the A340 is compared to the Il-96-300.

    However if I think there are 3 commercial aircraft that most will recognise, even if they cannot necessarily name the A380 it will be the 747, Concorde, and the A380. I would say that the Il-96-300 is a somewhat moot point, and other Russian built aircraft in general, because of sheer numbers, there are only 29 Il-96-300 vs 377 A340s, and I imagine those Russian aircraft are very rare beyond Russian carriers, whereas a great many major carriers will have A340s, I've flown on one several times, like flying on several 777s because they are the two main long range aircraft at this time. 757 there have been 1050 built vs 79 Tu-204

    I agree with the number game, but if the two aircraft were parked alongside each other most people would be unable to tell the aircraft apart. I think the 747 is recognisable because it has the hump, the A380 as the only double-decker aircraft, the iconic Concorde, the DC-10 but there will be some confusion with the MD-11, and possibly a 737. Telling the aircraft apart is easy when the distinctive features of each aircraft have been memorised, however, few individuals are willing to spend the time learning the unique features.

    Not sure how you would mistake a DC10 for a 737 given that DC10 is trijet vs twin. The MD11 also has winglets while the DC10 doesn't; the 737 also has rather distinctive winglets, I do not believe there is any other common aircraft with similar winglets

    Not sure how General Electric is a minor player in the commercial aircraft engine industry It has more marketshare than RR and P&W combined in the space.

    That's the one. Did I get GE and P&W the wrong way around? P&W I always remember because it has a funny name and the F16
