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.
