Yeah I used to sell it when I got home. Used to make a fortune .

I would buy a kilo then get a 25% off voucher then go back and get another kilo. Sold the lot by Friday night then went back the next week to do it all again

Tarrifs ???? Ha ha ha ha

So the Brexiteers plan is for the UK consumer to replace quality European goods with shoddy Chinnese ones. Iíll pass on that one thanks

Unfortunately we sold Rolls Royce to the Germans and Jaguar to the Indians
Rolls exports to 150 Countries
Jaguar land rover sold 621109 vehicles globally in 2017
80% exported to China North America and Europe.
Bury Black Pudding now exported globally.
