  1. You can often find out the country of origin by Googling the company. Or, sometimes the Amazon product listing FAQs will have the country of origin. That said, one must be aware that there are Chinese-run factories in other Asian countries, and even poor Italy has some Chinese run and staffed producers.

  2. The detailed literature proving Chinese imperialism is already massive and irrefutable.

    Out of the Brussels fry-pan and into the Beijing fire?

    Will the pathocrats allow us to criticise the New Yellow Peril? Who knows? Following regulations from the “Conservative Government in September, for instance, Ofcom has extended its “hate” speech prohibitions to cover “disability, ethnicity, social origin, gender, sex, gender reassignment, nationality, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, colour, genetic features, language, political OR ANY OTHER opinion, membership of a national minority, property, birth or age” (“Daily Mail”, 4 January 2021, p.11).

    Quis custodiet…? Big Brother is Humpty Dumpty. Some prosecutions will be in the “national” interest, but not others.

  3. Might help, if consumers boycott goods from China.

    A glance at the stats suggests that approx one-third of manufactured goods imported from China to the UK is in consumer items, as opposed to the approx two-thirds in capital items or other goods bought by large entities.

  4. Dear Doctor Editor:

    All worthy resolutions, to be sure. The most difficult will be your first one. There was a book written 12 years ago by one Sara Bongiorni about her family’s resolution to not buy any Chinese products for one full year:
    A Year Without Made In China: One Family’s True Life Adventure in the Global Economy

    I actually attempted to keep that resolution myself about 20 years ago (please don’t ask). That aside, I think an even worthier ambition would be to not buy anything from Amazon for one year, or even ever again. The Amazon monster company is effectively destroying our small business townscapes, impoverishing millions of middle class families, and this plague year has been the best thing wonky-eyed Jeff Bezos has ever seen.

  5. What is the Home Office response to your allegation about flight passengers entering without covid checks? Is this really true?
