Why the QM2,QV & QE could not be built in the UK

Cunard Line - boards.cruisecritic.com
I found this youtube video. It is from 1986 and it is some British TV news program that is like 60 Minutes here in the USA. Anyway this news show did a 15 minute report on why the QE2 could not have her conversion from a steamship to a diesel-electric ship work done at a UK shipyard. It was done at a German shipyard instead. This video does explain why the shipbuilding and ship repair industry in the UK was in decline at that time in 1986 and why the QM2,Queen Victoria,Queen Elizabeth and the new Cunard Ship entering service in 2022 could not be built in the UK. Here is the link Any opinions? Regards,Jerry
