Subject: BS: Marmite - No Way says they

This may have already been posted elsewhere but our dear "friends" at the BNP have a wee bit more trouble on their grimy little paws

Marmite Issues Legal Action Against BNP.

Marmite is launching legal action against the British National Party after an image of the spread was used in a political broadcast without the company's permission.

The famous jar appeared in the top left hand corner of the screen while party leader Nick Griffin was addressing viewers in an election broadcast on the web.

The 4.48 minute video then ends with an image of the spread alongside the words "love Britain, vote BNP".

Marmite's advertising is based around the slogan "love it or hate it" - an idea the BNP appears to have been trying to adopt.

A spokeswoman for Marmite said in a statement: "We want to make it absolutely clear that Marmite did not give the BNP permission to use a pack shot of our product in their broadcast.

"Neither Marmite nor any other Unilever brand are aligned to any political party.

"We are currently initiating injunction proceedings against the BNP to remove the Marmite jar from the online broadcast and prevent them from using it in future."

Ironically, Marmite is currently using a fake election broadcast to advertise its product.

The advert - which appears to poke fun at the BNP - features an "election broadcast by The Hate Party".

A spokeswoman for Marmite - which is owned by multinational company Unilever - refused to comment on the advert when contacted by Sky.

Mr Griffin mentions the Marmite advert in a blog post on March 31.

He wrote: "Not being fond of Marmite at all I find it strange this morning that this sticky by-product of the brewing industry should be playing an integral part of my breakfast.

"However such is the case as a couple of early morning calls alert me to the striking similarity between the BNP's 2009 election broadcast and the latest advertising campaign by the purveyors of the brown stuff.

"If you examine this video and the screenshot below from the original you will see exactly what I mean.

"I must say as an exercise in subliminal marketing, just a few weeks before an election, I love it."

The BNP later posted an article on its website claiming a "joker" had amended the broadcast to include the Marmite jar.

Mr Griffin also said the BNP had complained to the police about the Marmite Hate Party adverts.

A question:

Which has a longer shelf life (best before date) Marmite, or the BNP?

Which would you feed to your kids, without worrying about their future health?

Just wondering.

"Mr Griffin also said the BNP had complained to the police about the Marmite Hate Party adverts."

Which proves beyond a shadow of a doubt, if we didn't already know, the BNP has absolutely no sense of humour!

Wow I looked up Marmite on wikipedia -- I didn't realize it was so ancient. I thought it was a middle-age spread.

Why would the BNP complain about that advert? Surely they don't think it can apply to them - do they?

the office of the Hate Party bears an uncanny resemblance to the one in Griffin's election vid :)

So now, going through my mind is the thought....

How does Whoopi know it tastes like licking a cats' arse?

Well somebody has to come from Salford, and in my experience they are not all Marmite lovers. I can't imagine that kids will be sitting behind the bike sheds chugging cans of Marmite, even if they have pinups on them. But the taste of a cat's arse is something I can sadly be authoritative about. The morning after a cracking party session, and I got up with thumping head. First up too, so I thought a quick tune might ease the pain or perhaps conjure up a fellow sufferer or two. Reached down side of chair, picked up whistle carelessly discarded the night before, made as if to play- to find that the bloody cat had crapped on the working end. It's bitter, but not like beer, and Marmite isn't nearly as bad.

I think the BNP are far more like cat shit than Marmite.

All I can say, Steamin' Willie, is that it would be better if you would take the time to register (using a real name and e-mail address), and keep yourself logged in.

    I had to delete all Guest messages, since I see this is a thinly-disguised BNP thread.

Which reminds me, Joe - my kids fed you cheese and Marmite butties, and you are still alive!

I love it! It's going with me to the Eurogathering in Iceland (although I have had to stoop to the newfangled plastic squeezy bottle)....and as for the middle aged spread: I am currently drinking my coffee from a mug designed by Simon Drew, which has on it a jar of unctuous brown stuff labelled "Middle aged Spread"!

Andrea ...about to go spread some on newly baked bread
