just john Posted March 25, 2012 Share Posted March 25, 2012 Will you save Britain's industry and your soul?British knicker-maker, Mary Portas brand is called “Kinky Knickers”. She describes them to tellyviewers, to her factory hands, to the head honcho at Liberty as “a bit cheeky, a bit naughty”. But her main point is that buying something made in Britain (by people who otherwise wouldn’t have jobs) will make people feel that they’re doing something – gulp – for their country, for their fellow-citizens and for their immortal soul. Buying Zimmerli’s knickers makes you feel “pleasure”. Buying Mary’s British knickers makes you feel altruistic. Not bad for 10 quid. telegraph. Is-it-wrong-to-take-pleasure-in-my-knickers.
