The Power of Lobbying

A recent article in the Daily Mail reported on the trial of Azhar Ahmed who, following the death of six British Soldiers in an IED explosion, posted offensive comments on Facebook saying that "all soldiers should die and go to Hell".

Withot wishing to diminish for even a second the pain of families who have lost soldiers in conflicts, one aspect of the report that caught BFTF's attention was that the defendant had also mentioned that he worked at the biscuit firm Fox's and that, as a result of this, the firm "was inundated with complaints...the firm was so concerned about complaints and possible damage to their brand, it was discussed at the top level of it’s parent company."

Which just goes to show how effective small individual actions can be...
