When we have finished with the piss taking their is a real point to be made. My father was born into a working class household of 7 kids in the early 1940's - they lived in proper financial pover

I still think it's almost a piss take.  Kneeling to remember a bloke killed by kneeling. Is someone just trolling the planet sitting there pissing themselves at how dumb most people are ?   

All this rioting from BLM must be swelling the ranks of "white supremacist" organisations. They must be filling up with ordinary whites who are seeing the hate directed at them for having the temerity

Do these businesses really think this kind of nonsense virtue-signalling is going to endear them to their core customer base?

P&G is being perverse here.

Yes Tom and Lance are AFAIK decent people who will be excellent parents but they are entirely unrepresentative of the 99.9% of parents who will be buying these products.

They haven't been chosen at random so have they been chosen because they are unrepresentative of the average customer?

Pure attention-seeking by P&G and yes we have fallen for it.

Fuck sake, are those two still in nappies?  What were their parents thinking?  It should have been sorted out by the time they started school.

Any company who use PRIDE as an excuse to daub rainbow colours all over their packaging and tell the world just how down with the gay community they are. I mean fair enough for Skittles, but last year so many companies jumped headlong onto the bandwagon that needed I fucking sunglasses to walk round my local Tesco.

I don't understand why companies pay a lot of money to add a rainbow flag to their products. We already have equality in this country; gay people are allowed to live and work and buy products like the heterosexual population. The message is completely lost on me, I've Googled it even but still none the wiser. It's now so widespread that it's going to lose its message (whatever that is) so it doesn't really bother me.

Bit of an insult to the millions of dads who use their products for their kids isn't it? If I was a dad I think I would go out of my way to use an alternative product now.

What does P&G think is going to happen - that more gay people will now buy their product and increase sales?

I thought it was something to do with Greenpeace O.o

Not that I would ever eat there anyway (no judgement), but the recent Nandos advert that has no white people in it was a strange one. Don't they want my money?

This is my problem with boycotting the silly arse virtue signalling companies: they sell over-priced branded rubbish that I wouldn't touch in the first place so I can't claim to be boycotting them. 

Superdry was a great recent example; every so often I go to watch the banger racing and there is a very high chav count there.  The number of identikit black Superdry Japan jackets has to be seen to be believed.

My guess is that P+G have farmed out their advertising to a ....yes.....LONDON ad agency.

Staffed by ding heads who would be shocked to the core to find that most people in the UK do not think the same way as their 'City zealots talking to zealots' circle of friends.

I'm so cool I hated that brand long before it wasn't cool.

I don't like the brand but I do like their knitwear jumpers. Everything else has gone downhill. Maybe they'll need a rainbow ambassador.

Superdry were great to start with. I don't mind chavs buying their stuff, it's the boomers who put me off. Can't walk anywhere without seeing a 50 year old wearing Superdry now :ph34r:

As I've said before on here their success surely is down to having thick clothes that last. Nobody in the fashion world seems to have cottoned on to this though.

It does work extraordinarily well, though.

People are dumb.  They (even the straight ones) say 'yea!  P&G is lovely!  I'll buy their products!'

Eventually people will work out 'these companies don't care.  They've never cared.  I should actually boycott their products for them taking advantage of a minority group issue'.  I wonder how long it'll take.  (probably a few years yet, but when people turn they'll never be fooled again)

But then they die to be replaced by new gullible idiots and the whole cycle starts again. To quote Disney, its the circle of life.

      As per title. Hate Crime and Public Order Bill introduced to Scottish Parliament. 
      "If you call someone an “old fool”, you will be committing a criminal offence even if you meant nothing by it and were just using a common phrase, age being a protected characteristic. Calling someone a “stupid boy” will similarly become illegal. "
      Not that they need a specific new law to harass people as the existing Communications Act 2003 seems to do just as well.

      A new series of 'War of the Worlds' started on Fox last night with an opening 2 parter. It is some French / UK production so is refreshing in that it is not about the US. The storyline is split between the UK and France with the French bits spoken in French and sub-titled. I think it is an attempt at a 'Walking Dead' clone.
      Spoilers:
      Basic plot is that aliens land pods on Earth which send out an EMP that kills everyone who is not inside some kind of metal box - i.e. a lift - or underground such as in the tube. 
      It is sadly yet another woke POS with a woke open border message - one of the main characters is an African immigrant whom we first see in a Calais migrant camp just before he smuggles himself into the UK inside a metal tanker lorry. There was also a scene where a white British male trapped in France is wary of a dark skinned man approaching him - subtle racism - only for the dark skinned man to offer him water and help.
      The migrant guy breaks into the one shop in the UK that is locked - most of the population died suddenly when the EMP hit so Tesco and Home Bargains did not have time to lock up and thus have plenty of free everything - looking for water. This just serves as a scene where the white owner can be shown as callous by stabbing him despite his plea for water. (The migrant guy is carrying a rifle and handgun that he took from a dead copper.). Yay, the migrant guy shoots the shop owner dead - we are supposed to cheer his killing of a white supremacist racist water hoarding shop owner aren't we? That will teach you Cecil Rhodes!
      There is a really whiny character played by some actress who was in Downton Abbey. At one point it is felt that we need to see her having just finished having a wee behind a car. Ninety-nine percent of the human population is dead and, despite standing in a residential road, she opts to wizz in the street rather than use a stranger's toilet. Sticking it to the man eh? She then spends ages doing up her trousers and whining at the man who loves her and who saved her life an hour or so earlier. Feck, what a miserable character with not one single redeeming trait.
      But none of the characters were likeable. They were all whiney or depressing or selfish. Or all three. I only watched the full 2 hours just in the hope that they would all die. Sadly they did not. 
      Now the aliens are on Earth eating the survivors. There are billions of dead bodies - which the aliens killed - but the aliens seem to prefer us humans tentacle-licking fresh. Earth is now a giant human wet market for them. Maybe we will give the aliens the coronavirus. Either that or we will whine and depress them to extinction.
