British Family - Updated

Could you survive for a year on items that are made in Britain.... and nowhere else ?

The BRITISH FAMILY website will follow the progress of the BRADSHAW family, who started the year aiming to do just that. There are a few posts on the blog so far describing some of the problems they've had sourcing particular products.
The project is potentially problematic due to the interconnected nature of all things. There are probably few things that are fully produced without any connections with countries other than the UK. Also, labelling means that there may be certain stages in the production of a product which are carried out outside the UK, but the final

Follow the Things is a project which encourages you to think about the sourcing of the products that you use and encounter.

For example, the family are presumably sourcing products on the internet using a laptop which will not have been made in Britain...
Good luck to the Bradshaws with their journey...
A lot more of us will perhaps be sourcing British meat for example after the recent horsemeat stories...
Should more of us be backing Britain in this way ?

UPDATE

It seems the family are having some problems sourcing British products...
