Who Needs Skill?
Human skill is being systematically eliminated from industrial production. The take-over by tape-controlled machine tools is virtually complete. Concorde's intricate shapes are nearly all made by semi-skilled men. But if we do design men out of production altogether, what will be the social cost?

David Ingles : miller, aerospace
Tommy Innes : welder, nuclear engineering
