Nanny Hates Marmite


How absolutely absurd, it seems that 250 people ahev complained to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) about the above advert for Marmite.

For why?

They are of the view it trivialises the work of animal rescue charities!

The RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) said it understood that "animal lovers are concerned on our behalf", quote:
"We plan to talk to the makers of Marmite about how we can work together on animal welfare."
Am I so thick skinned and insensitive, but is this not an absurd overreaction?

    I made a decision a few years ago now to not give to the RSPCA. They sit on huge reserves of cash, but always plead poverty.
    They have, in my opinion, become drunk on the power they got from recent animal welfare legislation and seem only too happy to throw their weight around.
    I made these points to a "Door Knocker" who called at my home trying to get me to sign a direct debit in favour of Nanny's little helps; he went on to say that, because I would not support the RSPCA, I must, therefore, be in favour of abusing animals....I gave him my forthright and frank opinion as to why he was wrong and got him to admit that his "company" which the RSPCA employs to fund raise, would receive sixteen percent of my donation. I informed him that I support a local animal charity where, all of the money donated goes on the animals they rescue and not on TV adverts, idiotic door knockers, radio ads, huge and lavish corporate offices nor huge salaries for top managers etc.....I believe the door knocker left with a flea in his ear:-)

    I do feel that many charity collectors have taken a leaf out of the professional politician's books given that, if you do not agree with them or agree to donate, then you are in favour of harming whoever or whatever their charity purports to help.

    1. It's not just the politician's book: 'He that is not with me is against Me' (Gospel according to Luke or Matthew, take your pick).

      You encountered a particularly blatant version, but it's a phenomenon frequently observed in collections for such events as Comic Relief; displaying anything less than inane enthusiasm when accosted in the street by an over-excited shop assistant in an expensively-hired chicken suit waving a collecting bucket is greeted with a reaction that suggests you are somehow guilty of wanting African babies to starve.

      Of course charity is now complulsory as goverment aid derived from taxes is sqaundered on the politicians' pet policies. Policies such as cross-subsidising the Indian space industry. And for this our politicians think they deserve gongs and not the person whos' liberty has been sacrificed to fund the policy in the first place.

  2. Seriously anyone who finds that offensive to animal welfare is an ignorant twat. It's hilarious, imaginative and clever and we need more adverts like it in my opinion (we don't need mroe adverts, just better ones)

    Unfortunately these complaints to the ASA are what happens when you mix toxic levels of fuck-witted stupidity with the power of the internet. It's why the Daily Mail online is the 10th most visited website on the planet.

  3. The 250 ought to be in strait jackets.

    I truly despair at the level of banal, mawkish, over-emotional stupidity in this country.
