I think we are all going through shit that need never have happened if the US, from the safety of thousands of miles away, hadnโ€™t provoked it.

Meanwhile, having created the Frankenstein China monster through US corporate greedโ€ฆ. Whatsโ€™s next?

Thatโ€™s my earworm for today :notes::musical_note:

I quite like Rammstein, they did a (real live) porno song a few years ago. They got it spot on with Amerika.
At some stage they will poke the Bear and the Dragon one too many times with a sharp stick and we will all pay the consequences. In the meantime, not sure what any of us mere mortals can do about the corporate gluttony though.

Stop buying anything made in China?



You are quite right. Just spent โ‚ฌ14 on 2 pairs of socks from Marks & Spencer, they are dreadful leg part so small I could not get my foot in then I see the label in small print made in china. Having shopped at M&S for over 75 yrs no more custom from me.

Trouble is that such is a big ask these days, and not easy to achieve.
We have just taken delivery of a Panasonic combination Microwave / Convection Oven, which of course was made in China, and of course the instruction book was printed there as well.
I suspect that the list of things which are not made in China is considerably shorter than the list of those of Chinese origin.

Sounds simple @NotALot but very nearly impossible to achieve if you want any electrical item, or small consumable items. But a worthy challenge :fr:

I an ridiculously pleased that a dress I ordered from M&S arrived today, label says โ€˜Made un Lithuaniaโ€™. Not China !_!

As I understand it, M&S are switching all their production out of China.

Not so much Amazon, who now avoids stating the product origin. Big hint in the manufacturerโ€™s name though.
