    Expect this to be the most popular vehicle in the scrappie by 2022.

    In the same way that his vacs are the most discarded at your local amenity site.

    assuming they have enough juice to get to the scrapyard...
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

    Why all the negativity. British engineering with ambition is fantastic or does that not fit in with your attitude of British self loathing.

    Don't be silly Beansey, even his vacuum cleaners can't do that properly (or so the missus tells me)...

    It's great that Dyson have their R&D in Malmesbury and is no doubt good for the South West although if the manufacturing were still here it would be even better.

    For me there's a real of hypocrisy in his position of offshoring manufacturing, particularly given that he complains about a lack of STEM graduates in the UK. I have little doubt there are numerous well qualified STEM graduates in the UK struggling to get jobs who would give anything for a chance to work at Dyson.

    Someone I worked with back in the day had a contract with Dyson.

    I was given to understand that he was happy to see the end of the contract.

    You never see a builder with a Dyson. They all use Henry. Which are manufactured in Chard, Devon, cost less than a third of the price of a Dyson, clean just as well while using a fraction of the power.
