@Blank-Reg: That is the same argument...

...we heard when it came to taking lead out of petrol - having lower standards would make us more competitive. But the real world doesn't work like that. Just like subsidies or tariffs, anything that feather-beds your own industry tends to make it lazy and complacent, and generates resentment and demands for action against 'unfair competition' from voters in the countries you export to.
