You pays your cash, and you makes your choice!

I am not the kind of man who lightly joins or promotes ‘boycotts’. Most of the politicised boycotts and protests come, of course, from the Left, the so-called Liberal elite; those who know how the rest of us should act, or think, or vote, which is the way that they think. I would never join a boycott of Israel, whether economically-, financially- or politically-based. The Israelis have enough to worry about, as the ONLY functioning Democracy in the Midle-East floats in a veritable sea of jihadi-promoters, Jew-haters and genuine dictatorships, without having to even discuss some lefty-liberal stating that the world should stop buying Israeli goods or services because the Israelis are just plain nasty about everything!


But I have joined the one BOYCOTT which makes both economic, as well as political sense. I have stopped buying Kelloggs cereal products, and switched to my local Tesco own-brand. I have joined the Breitbart-inspired boycott, which grew out of Kelloggs infamous decision to withdraw all their advertising revenue from the right-wing website because it clashed with their (Kelloggs) ideas and ‘”didn’t align with the values of the company.” I will not buy from a company which seeks to dictate how a news organisation runs its editorial desk, so I won’t be buying anything else from Kelloggs either.
Mind you, there is the ECONOMIC argument as well, in that the Kelloggs cereal I used to favour costs £2.89 per 500gram pack, or a net cost of 58p/100 grams; and the Tesco replacement cereal, which incidentally tastes exactly the same as the other, as well as doing exactly the same job on my digestive systems; costs £1.45 for a 500gram pack; or a net cost of 19p/100 grams.

    We must use the tactics of the left if we want to compete with them. I’ve always felt that fighting fire with fire just means that everything burns down but I’m now starting to think that is a good idea. I suspect that until these namby pamby bunch of SJWs we we do quite well in that scenario.

      The Left like fighting decent people. They enjoy this because such people don’t push back. As soon as they do, the Left evaporate and hide. Sadly, like vermin, they always come back. There’s always a group demanding it gets raised above the others. It calls this ‘equality’.

    I don’t think that I have ever bought any of their products so they aren’t really going to notice my boycott. I tend to buy supermarket own brand products whenever they are available. The Asda stuff is of excellent quality and usually about half the price of the branded stuff.

    For similar reasons, I no longer buy Heinz products, or Cadbury’s (Kraft) or, now, Nestle; three companies that are shafting their client-base, and expecting them to be grateful for it.

    Welcome to the club. Don’t forget Walkers, Starbucks and Nestle.

    Kellogg has never quite got over its start-up, making anti-masturbation cereal for men and boys while at the same time promoting the ‘digital relief of tensions’ in ladies’ private parts (for a modest fee, of course, paid to chaps with proper qualifications).
