                  Dept? Whole Europe is in dept more or less, what has that to do with anything?? Your post is on the JRS level. Full of Sputnik drama, but with no factual content.
                  Pls explain yourself in a more detailed way, in what way will Britain face a worse economical situation?

                    I heard the whole UK is breaking away from Europe and will soon float out into the middle of the Atlantic. The good news is they will be closer to the Falklands.

                      You think it is over? No, it is only a beginning. Breaking always bring to fall of economy. Just look at ex-Yugoslavia or ex-USSR. But the debt still have to be payed. All western states are dependent on new loans to operate and to live. When the big break begin, there will be no new loans, exports will fall, economy will go down, but the debt will still have to be payed. But with money shortage this is not possible or you have to cut other spendings. You know the recipe. At the end state is bankrupt.

                        You may not have noticed this but markets always act ahead of the curve.

                                    "Cracking is not an issue": Airbus pitching the A400 in the US

                                    Airbus expects two planes to have flown 100 hours by June 24 to test an interim Avio propeller gearbox replacing the present system.

                                    “Cracking is not a safety issue,” Alonso said. “Safety is guaranteed by inspection intervals.”

                                      About F18C being pull.put of boneyard and regenerated into F18C+
                                      As of late April, only 87 of the Marine Corps fleet of 276 Hornets were flyable, Marine Corps officials told Congress. Many planes are grounded due to a lack of spare parts and other maintenance issues.

                                        32% availability? Is that a particularly bad moment, or did it hover that low for any length of time?

                                          Obama has not provided money for spares. Jets only fly by cannibalizing parts from other jets. It's the worst time since Jimmy Carter tried to unilaterally lose the Cold War in the late 1970s.
