Can we expect MRO shares to get a boost from the Technology Development Agreement with Parker? Will sentiment return? Was the fish cod, haddock or Vietnamese cobbler? All unanswered questions.

Melrose obviously asset stripping!!! “Parker Aerospace and GKN Aerospace Sign Technology Development Agreement for Integrated Engine Thermal Management Technologies By Published: July 16, 2018 1:00 a.m. ET Parker macrolamination technology will support GKN Aerospace’s advanced static-structure development for next-generation aircraft engines Parker Aerospace, a business group of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, today announces that its Gas Turbine Fuel Systems Division has entered into a technology development agreement with GKN Aerospace Sweden AB to develop integrated engine static-structure thermal management technologies. Building on its thermal analysis and macrolamination manufacturing capabilities, Parker is collaborating with GKN Aerospace, as the leader in engine-structure design and manufacturing, to bring structurally integrated thermal management solutions to advanced engines. This technology improves heat rejection efficiency over traditional plate-fin designs while retaining structural load-bearing properties when integrated into the nacelle. “Parker Aerospace is proud to bring its macrolamination pedigree from decades of fuel spray nozzle development, in collaboration with GKN Aerospace engine design and testing capabilities,” said Director of Business Development Shawn Isham from Parker’s Gas Turbine Fuel Systems Division. “Together, our companies will develop integrated structural thermal management solutions for current and future high by-pass turbine engines.” “Structurally integrated thermal management solutions will be a key enabler for advanced engine architectures requiring more heat sink capability with limited weight impact,” said GKN Engine Systems Vice President of Business Development Alex Guruprasad. “The collaboration will create additional value to GKN’s engine product offering.”

I see Airbus did the Remainer’s bidding then weren’t allowed to bid for a £2billion contract that went to Boeing. Remainers - the lowest of the low.

I used to work close to Filton airfield in Bristol. BAE and RR close by, a spitfire was a regular sight whilst in the office. The airfield saw one of the last Concorde landings if I remember correctly. Deliberately low for the photos, I was underneath it on the adjacent A road. The airfield has since been sold off for residential property development. It tells you all you need to know about how our governments view engineering and tech and who are the large party donators to the Tories.

How do you know it was a Merlin engine? Could have been a Griffon. And, yes, British can be good, but the Spitfire is indeed 60 year old tech.

Forgot to say. Saw a Spitfire SIX separate times yesterday, in D-Day stripes. Did loop the loop and victory rolls over the sea at Beach Head. Magnificent plane, wonderful sound of the Rolls Royce Merlin engine. British is best.

MATTHEW PARRIS | COMMENT july 14 2018, 12:01am, the times Donald Trump tells us truths we don’t want to hear, Matthew Parris. On Brexit, trade, Nato spending or China, the president has a habit of saying what more genteel folk secretly think Kissing Theresa May better after roughing her up was neither contrition nor revision. Donald Trump plays soft cop to his own hard cop. It was that first stomach-punch that was indicative. The president was right first time about a US-UK trade deal and he knows it. The Sun headline was exactly what he intended, while the subsequent “there, there, I didn’t really mean it” should be understood as a kind of exquisite torture: as a cat plays with a mouse. Mr Trump does it because he can. This visit by the 45th president of the United States will be viewed as a turning point in 21st-century British and European politics. As we digest, we will see the occasion as more important than any childish barrage balloons, Trumpish kicks at our hapless prime minister or exchange of discourtesies can possibly convey. No future president will want to unwind what he said about Nato, about special trade deals for Britain or about the choices facing us. Because this is not really about Donald J Trump. It is about great forces in history. It is about America: an America of which Mr Trump may strike us as a disagreeable caricature, but of which he is also in some ways a distillation. It is about how nations with almost unlimited power use it, have always used it, and always will. Power has no need to act refined. The way Trump combs his hair, wipes his nose, ties his tie or treats his hair, his nose, his tie and his hosts is not the point. He can handle his how he likes. He is president of the United States of America. “ ‘I want’ doesn’t get” is what we British children were brought up to believe. A US president is empowered to adopt a different maxim, and we may shake our tiny British fists in rage and horror, but we must finally face it. Yapping by my fellow British liberals is beginning to grate. H L Mencken got it in many ways right, in one way wrong. On July 26, 1920 the greatest columnist in the history of English language journalism wrote this in The Baltimore Sun: “As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.” It would be tempting to say that 98 years later, Mencken’s prophecy has been fulfilled; but that would not quite be right. This president is most assuredly not a moron: it’s far more complicated than that. Life is too short to deconstruct the mental processes of Donald Trump, so let me quote my former Times colleague Michael Gove. After interviewing the president in January 2017 for this newspaper, the (now) environment secretary remarked: “Intelligence comes in many forms.” Properly understood, the remark was neither sarcastic nor fawning, but puzzled and thoughtful. Way back in the last century, Margaret Thatcher’s rather fastidious and left-of- centre colleague, the (then) Norman St John-Stevas remarked “the trouble with Margaret is that when she speaks without thinking she says what she thinks”. Both men were, in their ways, describing the same phenomenon: the crude honesty than can come with brute strength. Donald Trump doesn’t care to think too much before he speaks and has a habit of saying what he thinks. And the trouble with us, not him, is that what he thinks is what plenty of more genteel and considered folk do actually think, but don’t like to say. Trump’s right, isn’t he, about the European end of Nato not pulling its weight in defence spending? His criticism of Germany for free-riding has been heard in European corridors of power for decades, but more quietly. He’s right, isn’t he, about the dangers of European reliance on Russian gas? It’s all very well to murmur that if Germany needs to buy, Russia needs to sell — but look at the way western reliance on Middle Eastern oil has skewed world politics for half a century. He’s right, isn’t he, that China is not oUering the world a level playing field in terms of trade. Perhaps brinkmanship here is needed. Nor is he necessarily wrong about America’s trade terms with the EU. It does not suit Brexiteers to admit, but it’s true, that the EU conducts its trade negotiations with “third countries” in a pretty muscular way. So they should, in all our interests, but let’s hear less European whimpering about US threats to raise tariUs, when Europe levies tariUs too. What’s needed is for both blocs to negotiate tariUs down. He’s right, isn’t he, that British politics is in “turmoil”;? And he’s right, isn’t he (fellow- Remainers, you wince, but you know it’s true) that Theresa May’s white paper Brexit proposals will turn the United Kingdom into an economic satellite of the European Union? As a Tory member I get the bumf the party cranks out to us by email, and my latest,“from” Theresa May (“Matthew — we’re taking back control”) is more nauseating than anything Donald Trump says, and by a long chalk less honest. The email presents the post-Chequers white paper as a blueprint to a hard Brexit when even the Downing Street cat knows it’s a blueprint to a soft Brexit. So Trump is right: the Chequers white paper brings down the curtain on the hardline Brexiteers’ vision of a buccaneering Britain trading freely in the world. Footage from this presidential visit adds up to an epoch-defining snapshot of two countries, each doing what they do best. Britain: pomp and protocol; smooth words and red carpets; palaces, banquets, royalty, silverware, gold-plate and fine china; bland communiqués and delicate evasions. America: raw power and cavalcades; comet-tails of guards, advisers and aides, spokesmen and spooks; military helicopters, blast-proof limousines and bullet-proof glass. Every world-power emperor in every century has looked like this. Trump’s presidential predecessors were simply more polite. How do you think Britain in the 19th century would have looked if you were Siam, or Burma, or China, or the Afrikaner settlers in South Africa, or indeed (in the preceding century) the North American colonies? Crude, brutal, perfidious and culturally insensitive: big, greedy, power- hungry oafs. Now the tables have been turned and the viewpoints reversed. And we don’t like it up us, do we? Trump’s Sun interview posed a question to both Leavers and Remainers Satellite to the United States? Satellite to the European Union? Or part of the European Union? Decision-time is coming closer.

Hi Losos Have extended the weekend by a day. Great b&b. Birling Gap to Beachy Head and beyond, and back. Wife swimming in the sea. Good food. Then Cuckmere Haven. Total 11+ miles. Alfriston, where we are staying, has a wonderful deli so eating “in” tonight with a good bottle of red. Yes, share picks going well. Have annual reports for Halma and Plus500. Detailed analysis to do when we return on Tuesday. Sun STILL in the heavens and Donald in Scotland.

Ryelodge/Meanwhile, only a few hours ago you were claiming you don't see posts from Yertiz any more! Come on give us one of your 'calculations' - we need a good laugh. That first one you did was the best - do you remember it? That one where you completely forgot how rights issues work and then got all confused between ranges and averages! That's still one of the funniest things I've seen on this board!!

Not asleep yet. From AINOnline which is a really interesting article about GKN Aerospace showing that that rather than making people redundant as stated by Donald m it is expanding “The strong year in 2017 for GKN Aerospace’s customers has helped it to expand its global footprint, particularly in Asia. The latest investment in Asia, announced here at Farnborough, will be a new aero engine component repair and research facility in Johor state, Malaysia. The development is being supported by the Malaysia Investment Development Authority (MIDA), which played a key role in the choice of location for the center. The new facility, which is scheduled to open in 2019, will service fan blades and disks from commercial aero engines. The research capabilities also being planned will be used to develop new technologies and apply them to the MRO product offerings. The center will open with a staff of 150 people, eventually growing to a full complement of 300.”
