I've just receieved two e-mails, the first is that the DTI is 're-branding' itself to the 'Department for Productivity, Energy and Industry'! Since when has a Government department being productive! Especially with the amont of money thats going to be wasted in consultants fees, new stationary, changes to their web-site, signage, etc! The second e-mail was a collection of headlines and links relating to engineering and science stories in todays papers. The first link has the headline 'Manufacturing Leads Slide as Industrial Output Hits Nine-Year Low'! It would be bl00dy funny if it wasn't so depressing!
