    If you look carefully at the robot in the article, you might notice that it has an Indian flag printed on it.
    That is not actually an Indian robot, it's a very skinny Indian in a plastic and metal suit.

    No need for a work permit....
    Three-and-a-half years, two extensions, seven defections, 21 deselections, three prime ministers, countless amendments, two prorogations, one Supreme Court judgement, 66 million Brits losing the will to live and were still at square one...

    I think this is the reason why no one at the top was bothered about giving skilled work to India and china. They already know that the next step is removing humans altogether. Mercedes have recently gone back to using humans on their lines as they believe that the job is too varied for repetition when you take build to order cars into account.

    Course it will. Just strap the naked old people down on a conveyor belt in a suitable position and smaller versions of those car-making robots could do the necessaries.
