If spendIng money of items - why not check where they come from and buy local.
Lots of stuff I look at on-line - as we are all purchasing things on-line these days - come from abroad and largely - often unbeknown to me as the item is priced in £ - it comes from CHINA. I have bought more things that were NOT as advertised - and just a waste of money - from China.
I have also bought things that were not crap - and also came from China, but had I known I was being sent light bulbs from the other side of the world - or any item for the home - from China - I would not have bought from that supplier and would have rather bought locally from within the UK.
Many companies hide their identities and it is only when you find out an item will be 3 - 5 weeks being delivered that you discover it is coming from the other side of the planet - China.
I have nothing against China - well maybe about it's Human Right Abuses and loads more... but other than that ... nothing at all... I actually admire it.
We are in a global Pandemic.
Brought about as far as anyone knows, from China - and now the county hides and avoids culprability.
Billions have been spent by every country in propping up business, people, pensions and all walks of life -
and if and when this is over - or at least more manageable and shops can re open and business get back to work -
