Right, well most of you will likely not agree with me here but if it’s not the cause then it’s certainly a contributing major factor.
I was sat on the toilet last night and my bare feet were on this lovely rug in the toilet, it was rather big, super soft and I was like wow noice!
Thanks to my wonderful parents it still had the price tag of £8.99 on it, which made me kind of shudder how people could make such products for such a price, and then a retailer sell it for a profit.
I then began thinking… this took as per usual some great many hours to get going and finally ding! I forgot to take my washing out, no wait …back on track.
We’re basically massive consumers in England, we actually manufacture little now, and we’re in this thinking the British people that we don’t give a flying fuckery where something is made, aslong as it’s either: A, Cheap or B, Good Quality or C, Both.
So we’ve lost our British Pride, but not only that, our constant shopping around for the better deal is closing margins upon margins upon margins, to basically where companies are forced to sell loss leaders more and more, and the luxury items have been reduced so much that the profit isn’t enough to cover the loss leaders.
An ignorant person would then think, Sup Bitch! Cheap prices are good if we’re in a recession, means people can afford more stuff!
Downside, cost cutting, job cutting, less wages, less safety buffer, companies who cannot compete with the low costs simply fall over and die…. ..the cheaper imported shite from China is now killing our Industry since we cannot match the cost.
So, the next time you pick up a fantastic rug for under £10 that’s made in India or China, think British, we’re gonna need the support to survive, after all if it was between British / Scottish steak or some fantastic cheap *Made in China* steak, which would you go for? And how much more would you be willing to spend?
Thought’s are of course always welcome unless you’re going to prove me wrong, then you can GTFO, haha only kiddin’!
