    Why? Why would I want to spend €500 on a vacuum cleaner when I can get one just as good or better for less? Maybe British consumers are just gullible ****wits....

    There's a lot better cars than BMW/Merc (for less)
    And there's a lot better vacuum cleaners than Dysons. Support the British economy and a British company paying taxes and employing British people - buy a Henry.

    In the thread list, the title read as "Sir James Dyson: Britain should walk away from Brexit ". Now that's a position I could support.

    Some Henrys are made outside the UK. They have factories around the world.

    I'm not sure that any are made outside the UK any more - there was a time they outsourced, but it appears everything is from Chard now.

    You have gone native. The Swiss don't believe in democracy. Just making as much money as possible.
    I'm single now, and it's really weird for me to be dating again because, for the last three years, I've just been cheating.

    Erm, the Swiss have 4 referendums a year. Every year. Are you saying that referendums are not democratic?
