- Brands you wouldn't touch with a barge pole…
Well despite Call-me-Daves claim to have ‘detoxified the Tory brand’, you could have a gun at my head and I still couldn’t bring myself to put an X next to a Tory candidates name.
Oh… and I’d like to be left alone in a room with the person who devised this Halifax advertising campaign. With a blowtorch and a pair of pliers. I’d like to make him suffer, like he has made us suffer

Nike, McDonalds, Sky/Murdoch, Nestle, Daily Mail, Tories (who knows who I’m going to vote for in the next election though). Oh, and SRAM bottom brackets.
Brands I’m working to wean myself off:
The Metro “news” paper
Fifa (the football authority and the game)
…and now, since I’ve just had my first two doughnuts from them, Krispy Kreme.
If the product is good and the price is right then I wouldn’t refuse to buy from them because I supported a different football team or because the adverts are annoying – that’s insane surely?!Posted 6 years ago
For me it’d be Vodafone (If they can w*nk off over F1 they can cut their call costs), Santander (More F1 w*nking and I’m sick of the sight of Lewis Hamilton), Samsung (the Chelsea connection), Sky,(don’t think you can whitewash Murdoch’s evil empire by part owning a cycling team), any company who uses the 2012 logo (the olympics are a busted brand) G* C*mp*re and M*n*ys*p*rm*rk*t/com because of those irritating adverts…
And there are many more… Go on, vent your spleen!Posted 6 years agodon simonMember
I’m actually struggling to see what is nasty about Lidl or Aldi, cheap, yes. I think they have quite a good business model though. The more that people avoid beacuse they think it is cheap and nasty means less idiots to battle through at the checkout.Posted 6 years ago
The only brand I’ve actively avoided is Pascual in Spain because their drivers ware complete twunts who happily participated in the 15km overtaking manouvre.rkk01Member
Struggling with the references to BMW TBH… seems like an out of date mindset
For the most part BMW seem to have reverted to being understated, conservative and very good to drive cars.
Seems to me that BM have moved a long way to reposition the brand image from the previous stereotype. The CO2 and tax efficiency thing in particular…
Yes you do still see some very nobbish behaviour from BMW drivers, but relatively unusual compared to the large number on the road.
Audi – well, that’s an entirely different matter…Posted 6 years ago
