Neoliberal capitalist doctrine and just-in-time (JIT) commercialization is all about increasing profit margins while simultanously putting out garbage product from china or the global south. Respending money on the same thing means people dont have the funds to appreciate something finer, or simply aesthetic. We should put up examples of quality items that have come out of Britain, big and small, from past to present.

I'll start, with the beautiful reproductions of Ewart Park bronze swords made by Neil Burridge. I'd love to buy one just to hang on the wall.

Classic mini cooper, a car of the people, and in my eyes, quite stylish

Lotus has been bought out by Geely but they remain a bastion of English Engineering. Hopefully the reorganisation prior to the pandemic does them a few favours, but this machine is at the forefront of everything in automotive design.

And she's beautiful.
