..should go and spit and the Osborne and Little Wallpaper and fabric in John Lewis tomorrow

It could be a terribly middle class demonstration, apart from the spitting

I might swear at it

Dawndonna Thu 04-Apr-13 18:41:50

That's the best idea I've heard in a long time!
Genius! grin

WillowB Thu 04-Apr-13 19:52:13

We don't have a JL in Derby sadly. But I would if we did grin

LadyMaryQuiteContrary Thu 04-Apr-13 19:57:21

[confused[ Whatever has JL done? (the nearest one is in Nottingham)

LadyMaryQuiteContrary Thu 04-Apr-13 19:57:33

Oops. confused wink

Owllady Thu 04-Apr-13 20:00:57

John Lewis have nothing to do with this, they just sell the product blush

StealthPolarBear Thu 04-Apr-13 20:03:42

Hang on they sell political wallpaper? I'm confused.
I quite agree the state should not fund killers' lifestyles (well other than at her majesty's pleasure). But I suspect that's not what he meant.

LadyMaryQuiteContrary Thu 04-Apr-13 20:24:08

You need to rethink your campaign, me thinks. wink

TotemPole Thu 04-Apr-13 20:49:56

Politicians are vile using this case as a benefit bashing tool.

LadyMaryQuiteContrary Thu 04-Apr-13 21:06:32

They are clutching at anything to try and get their sick point across. Roll on the next general election.

I had no idea of the connection! I won't spit on it all but I won't buy it any more. Actually, we only have a bit of Osborne and little wall paper because of a generous allowance from an insurance claim but I am now feeling a little bit sick looking at it. I feel as if we've somehow unwittingly supported this government.

Molehillmountain Thu 04-Apr-13 21:10:26

Ooh-just thought-we're doing building work in the Osborne and little room soon and will be redecorating. Anyone want to come over and spit on our wallpaper and write anti Osborne statements on all the flowers before we knock the wall down?

ReturnOfEmeraldGreen Thu 04-Apr-13 21:12:33

Me! Are you in the Midlands? I can bring cake and Prosecco!

Molehillmountain Thu 04-Apr-13 21:14:29

Alas no-but the campaign budget will fund travel, surely?

ReturnOfEmeraldGreen Thu 04-Apr-13 21:17:20

Well, let's see. If not, please could you write 'Fuck off Gideon' in v big letters for me? Thanks in advance grin

Molehillmountain Thu 04-Apr-13 21:29:45

I might just write it now-a bit gutlessly on a bit that doesn't show and in small letters-but it's symbolic, yes? There must be several hundred flowers to write on on behalf of protesting mumsnetters!

Owllady Fri 05-Apr-13 09:50:33

Molehill grin I would love to join in. I can bring pork pie

ConferencePear Fri 05-Apr-13 10:56:49

There is a shop in Derby that sells Osborne & Little. I better not name them.

HoHoHoNoYouDont Fri 05-Apr-13 11:04:30

This is a great advert for them. I'd never heard of them before and have just looked at their website. They might actually make a sale from it!

SolidGoldBrass Fri 05-Apr-13 11:07:31

<obvioulsy insufficiently posh - or is it insufficiently common>
What's fecking wallpaper got to do with benefits?

Owllady Fri 05-Apr-13 12:14:39

it's Gideons family business confused

JamNan Fri 05-Apr-13 12:20:06

John Lewis is a good company to work for and they treat their workers fairly. Best not to drag them into it.

I think I'd like to spit directly at the little cunt. Right in his face! angry

Molehillmountain Fri 05-Apr-13 15:10:09

Pork Pie and protest! Fab! I should mention now that I will (at least) do cheese and pineapple on sticks and a pavlova.

ExcuseTypos Fri 05-Apr-13 15:17:56

Maybe we could go and tear it a bit as I don't fancy spitting.

OR how about writing "Osborne is a massive cock" all over it?

Owllady Fri 05-Apr-13 15:20:05

yes we could draw penis' in dressmakers chalk on the fabrics
