It seems to take tragedy to wake us up. It took more than 1100 deaths in the Bangladesh factory collapse to remind us that £4 tops are not made in factories with decent pay, conditions and safety. It is encouraging that H&M, Primark and others have now signed up to the legally binding Bangladesh Fire and Building Safety Agreement. But, as I write, Gap and Wal Mart (Asda) have not. They don’t deserve our custom until they do.
