Green and Noble aim for 1000mph

Just as you're thinking of giving up on Britain as everything's falling apart, there's nothing left to be proud of anymore etc. etc, this is announced:
New Land Speed Record Attempt
Alright so we're in the middle of a financial crisis, the government don't seem to be able to find their collective backsides with both hands & a Polaroid camera and guys are coming back from sandy places with fewer body parts than they left with - here at least is something to stir the blood.

A cynic would point out that, barring the lending of a largely worn-out Typhoon test engine and (presumably) the release of Wing Commander Green from his RAF duties for a while, the Govt aren't putting any money/resources in and are making a fair bit of capital out of it.

Perhaps, but it's still nice to see.
Had I a few million to spare, they would be third on the list after the RBL and Macmillan Nurses.
