Why do we need to make one? The EU want one as they try to appear important or something and not relying on the US one yadda yadda
rely being the operative one here.
Who would 'rely' on Russia, China or rapidly unreliable U.S.A? They might decide to block it over tariffs....then not, then maybe....
The idea of 'building our own'? I hope any such project fares better than most gov. IT or the recent emergency services communication project.
Maybe the commonwealth can chip in....?
