While I am in agreement with everything you say above, I at least have to thank you for stirring up happy memories of the Nestlé marketing team who came to our students' union when that Yorkie campaign first started running.

The Guild took their money to let them run an on-site marketing promotion for Yorkie without finding out what it actually entailed. They certainly found out once the astronomical quantities of complaints began to roll in; the marketeers were handing out free Yorkie bars, but only to male students, because Yorkie was "not for girls".

They were escorted off the premises by security after being thrown out for breach of the Guild equal ops charter. Yorkie may taste like cardboard, but schadenfreude is much, much sweeter.
