Here we go again ... Indomike getting involved in something that is nothing to do with him must be going for most annoying poster of the year or most amount number of posts in a year award !

Firstly it was Tesco it was Co-op
Secondly I was saying I wont be buying their strawberries due to their latest ad on the tv.
How can I answer the "what charity" bit when its un named ? ...in the advert just says it gives a proportion of the sales to certain charities which I wouldn't like to donate to.

For Stroud ... Giving to charities isn't a problem for me at all as I have standing orders which go out every month and year and in 5 years of selling poppies raised approx. 18k for the RBL , It was the charity mentioned in the advert that I don't particularly approve of .
You mean, you post on a public forum but if I respond you say it's nothing to do with me? That's weird..
PS. What does "It was Tesco it was Co-op" mean?
PPS. Here to annoy :)
PPPS. I'm glad you give regularly to charity and I'm glad I do, too..(thumbs up)

When as a favour for a mate you agree to ref for him in what you thought was a youth game but actually turned out to be a senior friendly, then the oppo manager from pretty much the first whistle is in your ear mouthing off about you (eventually I booked him and said the only reason I wasn't sending him off was because this was supposed to be a friendly), and eventually the match is abandoned after 71 minutes when the oppo walk off after it all kicked off.

Won't be doing that again in a hurry.

I can understand favouring one charity over another but I'm struggling to understand why you would not 'particularly approve' of a charity - aren't are all charitable causes worthy of support?

If i had to agree with you we would both be wrong

When helping the RBL I had people come up to me and call me names and I shouldn't be stood on the streets rattling cans for baby killers some of these people were on the same streets weeks before rattling cans for their cause and if I put my case across why I didn't want to donate was again met with abuse so I now choose not to support any so called charity like those who would use my monies to promote themselves.
So in short No I don't think every charity is worthy of my support.
