Simon Chaddock, you must be a golfer, you just scored a hole in one with that statement..

Spot on. And it's not just China.

Who got fined for fiddling car pollution? VW and Fiat. Who didn't get investigated, let alone fined? Ford and GM.

Reckon you will be disappointed Barrie.

I will probably be disappointed on both counts but I am an eternal optimist !!

I will say here and now that I hope HK go bust over the FCC fine, and that post Brexit the import restrictions with 'That country' are tightened up to restrict the likes of Bang Good.

The PRC has been waging economy war on the west for well over 20 years and winning. Hopeful one of the upsides of the current pandemic will be people realising how dependent they are on the CPC.

You are correct there and I do notice some more enlightened people altering their purchase decisions.

We don't need to stop importing from China, just greatly reduce the unequal trade balance and keep them in check on regulatory conformance which is really what this whole thread is about.

I would prefer to be a free and poor man rather than be a minion dictated to by the CPC.

Trade is now global whether we like it not. I do like it. Though as much Chinese stuff is of doubtful quality I rarely buy it and also look to avoid 'hidden' though perfectly legitimate (ie not fake Chinese rip offs) Chinese manufacture with European and US names where the European/US manufacturer has contracted manufacture to China but charges Western prices.

However, as the totally independently written book 'Well Made in America' about quality using Harley-Davidson after its management buyout and successful revival  in the 1980s as the core of the book, has been standard reading for years where I work, I did buy two brand new  Harleys. I was also influenced by though very expensive they are made by people who are paid real wages.

No

I don't think the Indian made models are very successful being little different from Japanese-made mid size 'cruiser' type bikes..

Harley has problems (yet again). The big ones, though far more technically advanced than they appear and brilliant at what they are designed to do, sell to a declining and ageing customer set, myself included, and are too expensive for anyone except the 'dedicated'.
