    Hi Kate,
    I listened to your podcast today (my first but not last) regarding the US tariffs put on British made brands. Well, I’m shocked and discussed, I thought Mr Trump was our friend, the UK needs to be exporting more than ever with Brexit on the horizon. So many brands are leaving us in our time of need and this is not going to help. I am all for buying British, but this only means that prices will hike up to compensate for the loss on exports. Only wish we could encourage more companies to make/manufacture here so our economy would thrive, how do we encourage people to buy British?
    Keep up the good work Kate, you’re very interesting and passionate, a very wealth while subject.

    If US or any Country can make goods/ products in their own Country, then they should in order to keep their own people in work .
    Exporting goods without good economic reason is ridiculous.
