1. The government must fund us while we develop new market relationships


2. We don't need to rely that heavily on a supply chains and the UK is a good market; it will be just like the good old days.

No, I am not kidding. Reminds me of the old movies where Mickey and Judy will put on their own show...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRZ5400UKSc
