    Why would a party whose sole premise is to manipulate and bribe poor people want to make them more well off? They would lose their prey.
    That makes sense!

    I assume it was the premium brand that champagne socialists like
    It was Elizabeth Shaw mint chocolate from Sainsburys, £1.45 a bar. Inspiring and tangy.

    I've never tasted that brand so I can't comment on whether it is as good as lindt, green's or Cadbury!

    Though I might buy one- if they do white chocolate!

    It was dark and minty. I prefer plain dark brands of distinction but I wasn't in Waitrose, so I had to settle for the nearest thing to quality in Sainsburys.

    Id say Bournville is my favourite brand, even though its so mainstream, im sure youd never eat it!

    Dark chocolate digestives are great too. Milk chocolate just doesnt cut it for me, its to sweet and creamy.

    If Boris Johnson was chocolate hed definitely be plain old dark chocolate

    I've disliked Cadbury's ever since as a young teen I realised their role in supporting the Tory Party. Then I realised their chocolate is **** too.

    Boris shops in Waitrose (I know, he came to the branch I do my summer job in!) and, for what it's worth, did not purchase chocolate when I served him.

    Oh my god youve met him too! I actually work in Sainsbury's part time! I met him at City Hall on a politics trip a little while back, hes such an amazing character

    Lmao at the Cadbury's supporting the Tories, havent heard that one before, so which brand is supportive of the FOS party?

    Well Cadbury's is Kraft now of course, no idea without looking it up who they donate to, but probably it will be Republican causes. Actually the Cadbury family was somewhat divided and they did have one brother who gave money to leftish/liberal causes, but in the main they are and always have been Tories, at least for a long time - presumably they were socialist-inclined Quakers originally, or at least some capitalistic Quaker pastiche of socialism.

    I hear Green & Blacks support (unsurprisingly) the Green Party.

    Im sure there are loads more items in your life that are made by tory supporting companies

    Unless youre into that sewing your own xmas jumper stuff..

    So wait, on an honest level, do you really disregard things like cadbury's chocolate so much as if someone was to offer you a bar youd be like 'Hmm i dont agree with Kraft's political view and therefore im inclined to decline your offer for this horrid right wing schokolade'?

    Yes, I use an App that gives a sliding scale political points award (1 = Fascist - 10 = Completely Pure) to every single product currently on the market and advises for, or against purchase. It makes a groaning sound when waved over things made by child slave labour and a joyful "oh yeah!!" on organics.

    So if you were unable to afford clothes not made in sweatshops, does that mean youd be a raving nudist!? (Primark only option) :rolleyes:

    Go on, wave it over me, but be nice!

    Actually, if I remember correctly the party was founded by poor people. In fact, its first MP was a former coal miner. It could be said that since then it has been hijacked by the people you mention, however.

    What we've learned from this thread.

    You may hate everything about your political opponents but you cannot help but love chocolate.
