As druck said, government support for homegrown industry of pretty much any kind is at a historic low. Just look at the plight of virtually any non-service industry, then look at the lack of governmental support (tax breaks etc) that exist. Then look where government contracts and the like are placed. I remember a few years ago the Italians shafted a huge northwest ship builder, basically screwing them into insolvancy. What did the government do? Well, I suppose there's always job seeker's allowance!
