    If you are old enough then you may remember the TV sitcom that came from.

    It is just as true these days as back in the 1960's.

    As for Indian sweatshop scammers. Why do they insist on using an English name when their accent is very South Asia?

      If you’re on the equator, good luck!

      These decisions are normally made by investor driven CEOs and the last time I checked, those muppets are not very good at anything except delusions of grandeur and lying

    The real reason ANY work of any type gets done abroad is because WE, the consumers absolutely insist on everything we buy being as cheap as possible. Pay more so jobs could be created in the U.K. for example? No chance.
