Isn't it a bit wacist of John Hockey to suggest that non-white children are not British? And look what he says further down,

...the toothy look of the average British child is not really representative of our brand (Tesco)

Is this account for real? Couldn't Tesco be sued for racist abuse and discrimination?
Wow, you're right. He's really digging himself a hole.

Jesus, they've hit saturation level. I can't wait for the impending backlash.
Capitalism's a bitch, aint it?

Imagine giant retail companies spending million of pounds to advertise to their customers and potential customers?

Oh, look, their profits went up again.

I guess you could call that a backlash.

PS - The vast number of people in that ad are white. Or did ya'll miss that bit?

I think you have totally missed the points raised completely.

nobody is complaining about black people in the advert, the complaint is due to the forced mixed relationships they appear to be promoting and the issue of allowing Islamic religious symbols to feature in a Christian holiday advert that fails to show any Christian symbology.

I've missed the point? You do realise that Tesco are a private company and that TV ads are very expensive. Tescos are paying money to maximise their profits via appealing to their customers and potential customers. That is the only agenda going on here. So someone was wearing a hijab. Many people shopping down Tescos' isles wear hijabs.

Anyone go out trick or treating on the pagan holiday of Samhain? Have a fancy dress party?

Blasphemers the lot of you..... [said in loud God voice]
