Quote:In the 1840s there was a vast labour pool willing to work at low wages, we were in a time of great social and economic upheaval ( similar in many ways to the Great Depression). There was the Potato famine in Ireland (hence the large numbers of navies), would we accept a similar number of economic migrants from say Poland to aid construction?


This all makes sense now Smile

After all these interesting contributions as the original author of the topic all I can say is thank goodness we haven't just discovered the wheel - that would take at least a 100 years to be approved in the UK.

For some reason this post instantly popped the Golga Frincham Planet Colonisation Committee meeting into my head;

Captain: "Ah, what about this wheel thingy? It all sounds very interesting."
Hairdresser: "Well, we're having a little trouble with that right now."
Ford Prefect: "Difficulty? It's the single simplest machine ever invented!"
Hairdresser: "All right wise guy, YOU tell us what colour it should be!"

Good old Douglas.
