By Made in Great Britain
Would you be prepared to pay more if you knew the product was Made in Britain or UK?
Products cost more to be made in this country because we pay a minimum wage, and the materials are becoming more ethically sourced and sustainable. Our craftspeople train to learn skills to make quality British built to last items. They will outlast many overseas cheap throwaway items.
Would you feel better wearing clothing that had the label Made in Britain, Made in UK, Made in England? It was once common to see these on many items. Take a look at the label inside your clothes right now. Which country was it made in?
You can find British made products of all types here. https://madeingreatbritain.uk/british-business-directory/find-british-made-products

I've been having fun diverting as much as possible of my spending away from EU-produced or EU-owned companies. So far this week I have favoured:
1) Remington (US owned) shaver over Braun
2) Colgate (US owned, manufactured in China or Japan) electric toothbrush over Oral B (Braun)
3) Bought a £700+ laptop from a non-EU-whining-remainer company - John Lewis lost the sale because of some shitty remarks from the CEO over Brexit. Also avoided a few other Remoaning companies for the same thing.
4) Decided against buying a Kia Sportage when I replace my current car next March. Kia itself is fine but they make the Sportage in Slovakia so that's off my list. When making this purchase the main criteria is that it must not be made in the EU and also not made by a French or German owned company - so that's VW group and Peugeot Citroen out.
I am rather enjoying this.
Starve the EU beast.
