we need things made in britain again

The average man in the street does not understand the workings of the Brexit and some politicians are still unsure of what will happen when we leave Europe. Their is a lot of talk that counties will refuse to trade with us or price us out of deals and personally I hope that happens.

We used to be a proud manufacturing nation but for many years now we have invented something , sold a few then taken production abroad and yes I know companies do it because costs are lower.

We need to get "invented in Britain" changed to "made in Britain".

Cleaners made abroad , cheap nasty pens made in korea ,some of my own companies circuit boards are made in india and the quality control is appalling you get a free bag of bits with every order to replace bits missing off the boards.

Look around your own home and see how long it takes you to find something "made in Britain". Personally I would be prepared to pay a few quid more to buy stuff made here.

FOOTNOTE.... my wife has a microwave porridge bowl made in new zeland and sold in a well known kitchen shop , can you beat that.

You'r lucky but just remember not all of us can afford to pay the inflated prices charged by U.K. firms.
