Blocked Suez will mean extra delays in Bank Holiday supplies
UPDATED - There were already shortages of garden products before Suez became blocked. Despite it looking as if canal traffic will resume shortly delivery delays are likely to get worse.
I believe that onshoring of manufacturing from China and elsewhere is a good thing, but it must be commercially viable which, currently, even at elevated freight rates, it is not. To pretend otherwise is misleading. However, to make the argument for it, as “True Brit” is doing, at the expense of many thousands of Chinese people, many of whom work in and for our industry, is nothing short of contemptible.
All of the True Brits that I know would be horrified at this particular extremist’s views being broadcast under the pseudonym of “True Brit”, someone that he or she, patently, is anything but. And if you are one of the many Chinese working within or for our industry who has seen these comments, you must be furious. I can only apologise most sincerely for the remarks made by “True Brit” that are not at all representative of British people.
