One thing we British are pretty poor at is blowing our own trumpets.
We don’t tend to sing from the rooftops about our wonderful heritage in terms of creativity and design. But we should.
I watched with great interest the Channel 4 TV series Mary’s Bottom Line in which the fabulous Mary Portas initiated and produced her “kinky knickers” produced in the UK from materials sourced solely in the UK. She and her team created a quality product that had the pride of everyone involved stitched into it. And it got me thinking … the time has come for us to put the Great back into Britain.
So I will be posting about the Best of British from time to time including products, companies and individuals. The Olympic games and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee are just the start, we have so much to offer as a nation!
