Target companies for December

The day before George Osborne delivered his comprehensive spending review, 35 business leaders wrote to the Telegraph to praise the cuts to public spending that the review proposed. A boycott has now been launched of the 35 companies in the list.

 

Thirty-five is a lot to remember, so the boycott organisers are choosing three retailers a month to avoid.

 

The three for December are Marks and Spencer, Next and GlaxoSmithKline (Ribena, Horlicks, Sensodyne, Aquafresh, Lucozade) in addition to Boots, Mothercare and ASDA from November.

 

See the website at http://boycott35.com for the complete list and updates. There is also a facebook page.
