Sorry, no. Lorries have accidents, emit CO2 and kill wildlife. Repainting curtain-sides releases harmful vapours. Lorries transport things that are unethical and or dangerous. this has no part in our game.

John - you may mock, but a discussion on morals around sponsorship is a serious issue for many.

It's not a massive issue for me personally, as long as the business is legal I don't think we can be overly picky.

That said, I work for a Bank! :ph34r:

Not mocking. It is a serious issue for me too. I merely point out the absurdity of the position taken on this issue by some on here. It is one thing to have a person dislike of a particular organisation but it is another thing entirely to try to rationalise that dislike from some sort of supposed ethically superior standpoint.

There's nowt wrong with banks, by the way, only some things wrong with some bits.

Yep - unfortunately as with all discussions here they are often taken over by club loyalties.

Rightly or wrongly, short term loan companies are now a big part of life but are nothing new really. How old are pawn shops? For a lot of people its the same thing....borrow now, pay later when paid.

Its a rip off simple as, but we aren't talking genicidal third world dictators.
