Inventiveness

If not more so in the past than now, the people of England were more inventive than any of their counterparts. Look at the number of patents listed. Look at railways, jet engines, bagless hoovers, bouncing bombs, clockwork radios, and so on. Before we stopped following other people, our nation used to lead by creative example.
