    The annual Bloomberg Innovation Index, in its seventh year, analyzes dozens of criteria using seven metrics, including research and development spending, manufacturing capability and concentration of high-tech public companies.

    Which I think means mind your own f**king business. Or whichever country bribes the most....

    "The Bloomberg Innovation Index is an annual ranking of how innovative countries are. It is based on six criteria: research and development, manufacturing, high-tech companies, post-secondary education, research personnel, and patents. Bloomberg uses data from the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the World Intellectual Property Organization, the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the OECD and UNESCO to compile the ranking"

    Based on all that they then publish the Bloomberg opinion on which countries are the most innovative.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Like the CUK mod elections then. The ones who admin has the most bribe material on get stuck with the job or admin goes public.

    Typical U.K., not even good at bribing.

    We probably use the mighty muscle of the EU to negotiate on our behalf.

    Nearly every member of the EU is higher in the "innovation" rankings than the UK. I reckon there's someone like Grayling in charge of the bribes, he got all confused and bought a panda instead.

    The innovative living in Germany. Who'd huv dunk it.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
