They might as well have a bash at it since Labour gave up on that ethos a long time ago!
For goodness sake, some people really ned to get a life! This is quite an amusing ad, something thats pretty rare on tv these days and to have it pulled because two viewers challenged where the hops are grown is pathetic.
At the end of the day Mumsnet is exactly the same as a lot of other online forums and groups, they think they have a voice that matters when in reality, no one cares. Mums (other parents are available) aren't going to drive 10 miles to another supermarket when they have, say, an Asda on their doorstep just because they got a bit miffed at an advert. If any of them are that committed and actually do, they'll be so few that the supermarket won't even notice.
Maybe they think they have the power to mobilise a super-army of irate mums but in reality their gum-bumping isn't going to result in any supermarket losing revenue so let them blow off some steam and then, when they get pissed off at their husbands for not doing enough to help with Christmas, maybe they'll realise that Christmas is far less like their utopian version and a lot more like the ads.
People need to get a grip and get on with life. Whats wrong with asking for a puppy for Christmas? Lots of kids do it. Its part of a picture in a big catalogue, do the people that complained really have nothing else in their lives other than to complain about this type of thing?
I completely agree that some people that buy dogs for their kids, never having owned a dog before are stupid and there should be a test you have to pass before owning a dog but do the people that complained REALLY believe thats theres going to be an additional slew of people buying puppies for their kids because this picture tells them to? Parents who lack the intelligence are going to go and buy a dog, regardless.
I'm a dog owner and a HUGE animal lover, I can't stand the thought of harm coming to any animal, dog or otherwise and so I'm not saying that there isn't a massive problem that needs addressed. What I'm saying is that the complaints about this image in particular are pointless and certainly seem to point to people blowing off about something because they can, rather than because this image will have a significant impact.
Is anyone genuinely excited when Apple announce a launch date any more? You used to get excited to see what innovations they had come up with but lately the focus has been so much less on benefits and much more on features like 'thinner / lighter' or in the case of the 5c, that even the buttons are made of the same injection moulded plastic as the rest of the case.
