Jonah curses Cadbury's

Well that's the workers at Cadbury's shafted for sure. Gordon "Jonah" Brown has said that he will ensure that jobs are not lost.

Mr Brown this morning said that his Government would act to ensure Cadbury's 6,000 UK employees were not sacrificed as Kraft seeks a return on its investment.

He said: "We are determined that the levels of investment that take place in Cadbury in the United Kingdom are maintained and we are determined that, at a time when people are worried about their jobs, that jobs in Cadbury can be secure."

Why doesn't he shut the f**k up. Every time he visits, or pronounces on any company or enterprise it goes tits up within weeks. This is the end of chocolate as we know it. If you've never eaten yank chocolate, I can assure you, it is utter shite.

Whole article here.

Update: I told you so.

Job losses are an "inevitability" at Cadbury after its takeover by US giant Kraft Foods, the UK firm's chairman has confirmed to the BBC.


  1. Kraft bought the Terry's chocolate orange factory in York in 1993 and it's now a dilapidated shed. Jobs and investment long since moved to Poland.
    interesting that Cadburys sourced their cocoa from fair trade planters in Ghana. More expensive but better quality. I can't see that being continued if Kraft need to pay back their £7Bn loan that they took out to buy Cadburys. More poor farmers suffering due to global capitalism.
    Jonah doth speak bollox and has cursed another British institution.

  2. I think I'll have to move to Belgium now.
