The Galileo mess

The European Union, having demonstrated that it can't run an airplane-manufacturing enterprise at First World standards, now takes time out to show that it can't build an alternative to the American GPS system either.

Maybe we should stop worrying about the EU exporting its technology to our enemies, and try to encourage it to export its management techniques to them instead. They'd never recover.

The sad thing about the Galileo saga is that the name of a great hero of science has ended up attached to such an ignominious fiasco.

If only we didn't have to pay for the ignorant corrupt incompetent twunts I would be happy to let them rot in their own stupidity. As it is they are dangerous and steal my money !

I feel for the European taxpayer, I really do! But the power to change things is in Europeans' hands. It's just a matter of voting for parties that won't throw away bushels and bushels of money on these boondoggles.

Europe doesn't lack for talented people. Get the government(s) off of the private sector's back, and the technological successes will come.
