Thinking of Shopping at Lush This Christmas?

Note: I am not The Devil's Kitchen

You might want to think again, because you'll be making some very unpleasant people very happy...
The co-founder of cosmetics retailer Lush has been revealed as a fundraiser for the climate change protesters that closed Stansted Airport on Monday. - BBC News
"[Plane Stupid] are trying to look after us, someone has to look after them" - Mark Constantine, Lush co-founder

you seem to have misspelled "well-meaning, a bit thick and somewhat annoying" as "very unpleasant" above.

If breaking into an airport and causing 52 flights to be cancelled is "well-meaning" then I'm a Dutchman (I'm not, by the way).

Cheeky cunt.

You might also want to boycott the Lush store at Terminal 3, Heathrow then.

I love the way this idiot says that invading an airport is not terrorism because the invaders are looking after us all.

Such a bunch of cunts.

It is perhaps a tad against the principles of the Libertarian party but can you introduce the death penalty for anyone that mentions CO2 and climate in the same sentence. Imagine we could knock off swathes of self important wankers and then actually get on with living our lives in peace.

Mr Lush would be a good start

I'm confused. Why would a soap salesman want to *give* money to soap dodgers?

Roger Thornhill said...

I am going to write to him and say that I, as a previously frequent purchaser of goods, shall boycott his store and urge all others to do.

"I'm confused. Why would a soap salesman want to *give* money to soap dodgers?"

Have you smelt the stuff? Unwashed bodies are probably more pleasant, and certainly the scent of hippies doesn't carry as far...

Blah blah blah... CO2 levels went UP
Blah blah blah.... NO warming since 1998.
The Manhattan Conference etc.
NO AGW. NO CRISIS.
Just a bunch of nicely dressed hippie's causing me a fucking headache!

John Barker said...

So if I choose to vandalise this cunts shops he won't complain? The stench carries right across the pavement the moment you get near one of his poxy shops. It offends me! Not that I'm some dirty hippy bastard.

oh lighten up.
so a few hippies, tree huggers and tin foil hat wearers protested at an airport.
big deal.
ok some 'planes were delayed...again big deal....'planes get delayed every day for one reason or another.
the problem with this country is not enough people protest about things they believe in. whether you agree with them or not surely isn't the point.....i thought libertarians were in favour of freedom of expression.......or is it only restricted to blogging and/or wearing masks on the 5th november?
I'm not going to change my soap buying habits over this.....I don't and wouldn't buy his poxy soap in the first place.

Budgie said...

Funny how they say "climate change" but continue to talk about global warming?

As the financial adverts state: "change" can be down as well as up.

Mike Rouse said...

Perhaps we should arrange a protest for outside every Lush store we can. We could lie down in front of the entrance and stop customers from entering. We could be protesting against the sale of things that make other things smell different - call a campaign against aroma change. See how he likes it then.

Fidothedog said...

In the words of Cartman to the eco wankers:

Your all a bunch of tree hugging hippys.

John Trenchard said...

apparently Lush has 600 outlets in 44 countries.

i wonder how this fucker does his business travel - by fucking boat?

John Trenchard said...

by the way- our humble Devil made it to the letters page of the Evening Standard this evening, complete with url to this blog.

well done DK.

John said...

Flame away, I'm still shopping at Lush. I guess I just don't understand The Way The World Works as well as you lot. Poor me.

Anon @ 6:26 wins the "understanding that the freedom to protest, even in favour of stupid things, is more important than the freedom to not be mildly inconvenienced" award.

The people who disagree with Anon / agree with the original post win a special commemorative Jacqui Smith ASBO banning them from protesting against anything ever.

And IanQT wins the "not understanding that mildly inconveniencing people is rather different from being 'deeply unpleasant'" award.
