It's not only the customers whose willingness to pay or not pay that soley dictate where things are made. The accountants have a lot to answer for as well. They don't want to see large factories with expensive overheads and expensively-employed employees lurking just round the corner - eats into the profits too much. Get someone to make them elsewhere and just import the finished product - much better! That's why we have relatively little of our own manufacturing left in this country.

I would much rather buy something made in the UK, but in the above circumstances it is only small 'niche' manufacturers who seem to be surviving in general.
