China

China or is that Chinese.

real China was  made in Britain

#

Welsh I do not think so the labels say made in China so they are chinese not Welsh

Do not see any good China in the shop.

The coracle is a small, lightweight boat of the sort traditionally used in Wales. here its on display at the alternative energy day held in the powys council grounds, the corracle originaly was made with animal skin to make it bouyant .today its has a waterproof marerial made in China.

Beijing Gold Beer, Traditional, Premium Chinese Beer, smooth, low carbonated, to drink with oriental, spicy food. how many pubs have been closed in the uk over the past years how many breweries have gone bancrupt. and yet they can import this beer all the way from China and sell it cheaper than local beer.

Halloween!! Everything on this stand in Tesco's is made in China

its ok. I too can resist anything but Temptation

what is this  temptation .  I cannot resist putting my thoughts in when countries like China have the audacity to call us british Lazy.  All I have to say is I am glad the British have kite marks  . living in Egypt for 8 years opened my eyes as to the total rubbish the chinese make and sell to the poor or 3rd world countries.  motor bikes with names like.  keweseki   dayjong cost three thousand Egp  thats £300  cheap i hear you say.   not so when they only last 6 to 12 months. and a wage in Egypt is only $20 per month. Mubarak had an agreement with the Chinese  if they gave money to build certain museums  such as the entrance museum to the valley of the |Kings  they would buy cars and  phase out the peugot 505 taxis  any one that was older than 30 years  the owner was  forced to buy a new car made in China, 3 million Taxies in Cairo alone  4 years down the line  most  taxies have reverted back to the old peugot.s and skoda’s. as they cannot get parts for the chinese rubbish cars that were forced on the taxi owners.  this is how the corrupt regime  of Egypt went about forcing the sale of  the crap vehicles   there is no road tax as such in Egypt. vehicles are charged once an yer and given a drivers licence each taxi is 1000 LE per year then they had the fines   if they did not have money to give the bent road cop  they were given a paper to say they pay the fine  in the court. each driver has to go to the court building to renew his licence each year,  when it came to the time of selling the new cars from China  the fine was more than a new car.  so in order to keep the licence they had to get a new car.   now if the car owner wished to keep the old car on the road all he had to pay was the thousand thus  giving a job to another driver and forcing the owner to be an employer  creating more revenue for the regime.   for those who have been to egypt and wondered why a small place like Luxor  has over 3000 taxies. now you know.  every week  a young lad gets killed on a motorbike in luxor. the simple reason being they have no licence and far too often they are under age to ride. if stopped   10 egp would keep the cop happy.  not much for a life is it.  but then amongst the Muslim life is as cheap as the rubbish they are forced to buy.
