Eutelsat is injecting $550 million into OneWeb in return for a 24 per cent stake. Last year ministers raised eyebrows in some quarters when they paid $500 million in return for a similar- sized holding.

Hang on.
The French buying into OneWeb?
They don't have any faith in the EU's Gallileo?


"Kwasi Kwarteng, the business secretary, seized on the Eutelsat move as a vote of confidence in the project: ďTodayís investment is another giant leap forward for OneWeb in realising their ambition to provide global broadband connectivity around the globe,Ē he said."

Yes it's reported in The Times which, being a reputable source, is subscription-only.
If you can't read it because of that and you won't use the free strial subscription you're going to have to find less-reputable sources for this news yourself or rely upon the excerpts I have posted.
I donít recall saying i donít like good news, only that the report was nowhere to be found and called it elusive.

If itís not elusive then why havenít you provided a link to the EY report you cited instead trying to avoid the question by posting various other stories. L

So? How about that link?

Trying to deflect the issue, are you? Unable to produce a link to the Ernst&Young report. No wonder! It was reported in the DE aimed at readers who gobble up anything positive about the sunny uplands after brexit. Just as those uplands, the report simply doesn't exist.

Bit of an ignoramus in this field, are you? Galileo is meant for gps services.

UK, more specific dom cummings, bought into oneweb with the intention to develop a UK version of galileo. There was a snag, alas. Wrong satelites (too low an orbit). Look the debacle up if you like.

Don't you know how to use Google or other search engines or are you simply too ruddy bone-idle and would rather just sit there moaning instead?
Next time do your own work instead of making yourself look like an argumentative fool, but just for you here you go:

You're welcome.

You linked article in DE refers to the barometer published today, i.e. april 27.
The link you now provide is published on april 12, and has no barometer or reference to one. In short, what you now deliver is not what was asked for.
So, do it again!

No, not lazy just too busy working and I fail to see how asking you to provide evidence to support your statements is mossing and neither do I consider it argumentative. however, if by your measure you consider it to be so then that would make you the most argumentative fool on the forum.

Iíll now take time to read the link you have so kindly provided

I provided evidence in my original post.
You just didn't like the source.
That doesn't mean I didn't provide the evidence.
And now that I've done what you couldn't be bothered to do you're still quibbling!
You're just upset that you cannot dispute the figures.


From the original link:

"Celebrating the UK success, Generation Frexit leader Charles-Henri Gallois tweeted: "The UK remains the epicentre of investment in start-ups.

"They doubled.

"One in three European investments goes to the UK.

"The start-up nation is outside the EU."

Obviously difficult to comprehend. You provided a link to an article on an Ernst&Young report. Any decent paper would have provided a link to that report. That the DE doesn't is telling, but doesn't reflect on EY.
However, when one tries to find the repirt on the public sites of EY, it isn't there. Still not reflecting on EY, but it means your linked article, and in extenso your claim, is unsubstatiated, and to be ignored.

Of course EUrophiles will ignore things they don't much like and suggestions they disagree with.
That's the EU way .
That's what led to Brexit.
That is also what will lead to further disagreement withing the EU.

Like you, the EU doesn't listen to warnings.
