    Well I think the buyout is a terrible idea and was sad when I heard about it.

    Oh, and for the record we do have good chocolate here. Dove is very good, as well as Ghirardelli (out of SanFrancisco)
    Also it seems like there are more and more specialty shops making excellent chocolate. Mmmmm.

    A Kraft executive has apologised to the workers at Bristol for getting their expectations up.

    He also said that there will be no further job cuts in British manufacturing in the next two years.

    (Why did he say the next two years I wonder?)

    They really don't give a fuck, do they?

    400 people who were promised that their jobs were safe are going to be kicked on the dole and they don't even give a shit about acknowledging the workers or the factory's heritage:

    A good thing would be to put pressure on Tesco and Morrisons to stop stocking them... there are legal and non-legal means...

    Kraft really are a shower of cunts really aren't they. I think the Keynsham factory's shut now, or very soon. :(

    Pretty disgusting all 'round.

    Err, yes but none of that has anything to do with whether or not you're required to pay your fucking taxes :mad:

    In cases such as these I think HMRC should levy a tax based on turnover, to teach them a lesson!
