Welcome to Cheshire Innovation

Young British people could lose out as a result of BREXIT.

This website is an attempt to rebalance destiny in their favour.


We offer a lot of positive proposals for innovation and also some examples of mismanagement where remedial action is urgently required.

Latent Power Turbines could stimulate economic growth by providing low cost clean energy.

Key fact: When air passes through a narrow gap its temperature falls.

Latent Power Turbines exploit this to suck in heat from their environment. This allows them to generate electricity while cooling their surroundings.

Our preliminary research findings are very encouraging and currently being written up for journal publication. If you have a commercial interest we can send you copy of our draft paper.

Hope in a time of Trump

In the next stage of our research we hope to be able demonstrate that Latent Power Turbines can generate power at a significantly lower cost than burning fossil fuels.

So, even if president Trump withdraws from the Paris Agreement, America could still meet its carbon reduction targets by adopting Latent Power Turbines.

But, we need an industrial partner with turbine design skills.





The majority vote in favour of BREXIT was based on genuine worries about migration, loss of sovereignty and EU bureaucracy.

But BREXIT may never happen, because closing a deal that gives us control over EU migrants and allows us free aces to EU markets will be blocked by the other 27 EU countries.

Instead of reveling in this chaos, the Remainers need to jump up and seize their chance.

Paradoxically, the Brexit vote has placed ‘Remain’ politicians in the strongest position to champion radical EU reforms because they have nothing left to lose


We offer the Remain politicians some suggestions.


The three Brexit time bombs

Human biology will ensure that 'the will of the people' flips over to Remain about 14 years after referendum day.

We explain why.


Will HS2 be abandoned following BREXIT?

We suggest a low cost alternative to keep young people interested in engineering

Using current technology, the braking distance for trains is about sixteen times the braking distance for a car. This limits the number of trains we can run on our tracks.

But this problem can be overcome by using anew invention.
This would allow us to ease our network capacity problems in five years, without building any new lines.

Flood reduction farming

Problem: Modern large field farming has reduced the water holding capacity of the land and accelerated soil erosion is silting up our rivers and land drains.

Solution: Return to the smaller, more sheltered farm fields of the early Victorian era, but use teams of robot tractors instead of labour intensive horse drawn ploughs, in order to keep food production costs down.

Britain is in danger of becoming the envy of racists in Europe. We try to counter this, while still addressing genuine fears about high levels of refugee migration.


Can we save the boat people refugees AND preserve racial harmony within Europe?

Yes we can!



Now a story about British academics who kept quiet about research fraud, to keep the European research funds flowing in. - But European pedestrian lives may have been lost as a consequence.


Soft bumpers to save pedestrian lives


A British invention could make car bumpers soft for pedestrian impacts, but stiff for collisions with other vehicles.

Click here for the story of how the University wriggled out of holding an enquiry into the fraud when instructed to do so by the government backed funding body (EPSRC).

Alternative truths and the post-truth society

If you thought that politicians and the social media could be credited with this disturbing social trend, then think again.

A tiny number of dodgy Manchester University academics and the UK Research Integrity Office got there first!

For details please read this peer reviewed journal paper:
Courtney, W, ‘A private researcher’s struggles against research fraud’, Journal of Biological Physics and Chemistry 16 (2016) 142–156. *


"The UKRIO seems to have manoeuvred itself into a position similar to George Orwell’s Ministry of Truth. It may be the most powerful body in the UK for influencing standards of research integrity, but its status is such that it can ignore questions about integrity within its own ranks."
Ibid. Section 19.

Graphene -Whoops we made a mistake!

 Why a failure to understand the subtle power of patents means that most of the £50 million British government and one billion Euro European funding for graphene research is likely to be wasted. At a time when European funding for science is under threat we must spend our research funds wisely to protect our European research base.

The problem is critical but we suggest a solution.

Generating green power for Elon Musk's Hyperloop

Our suggestions for using Cheshire Innovation inventions to reduce some of the outstanding Hyperloop design issues





Tropical diseases

(i) Zika and malaria

X-Tubes can be used to kill the mosquitoes that cause both problems: working on Zika during the day and malaria at night.


(ii) Soap and the fight against Ebola

We need to be proactive, to minimse the spread of future Ebola outbreaks. Vaccines are part of the answer, but simple low cost practices should also be implemented.

A social innovation to encourage hand hygiene is proposed.


Bill Courtney is the principle inventor for all of the inventions described on the site. 1792 Technology is a joint invention with  Richard Klee.
