1800 BAE jobs lost. Has manufacturing given up the ghost?

This article asks ‘is the manufacturing sector of the UK economy in decline as well as the shipbuilding industry’?  The suggestion is that although there is some growth it is still well below that of pre recession times.  As ‘coolhead’ points out even though the service sector is growing much of this growth is reliant on manufacturing.  The article also allows us to consider the opportunity cost of government reducing its spending and the implications of this type of unemployment.
