Eternal optimist?!

Sir Clive Sinclair: Down but never out, the eternal optimist is back

The really sad thing about this man is that he still refuses to accept that the C5 was a joke, a pile of crap, completely useless and doomed to failure from day one:
But Sir Clive, who describes himself as "the eternal optimist", still thinks he was right. "I think it (the C5) was a good idea then and I do now, and we sold quite a few thousand and people loved them." But he goes on to confess: "Clearly I should have handled it differently. If I had it could have succeeded." His voice tailing off, he adds: "I rushed at it too much and invested too much in the tooling and I should have gone a bit more gently into it."
