Mars update


Credit where it's due, I suppose. The makers of Mars chocolate bars and stuff have backed down on their decision to use bits of dead animals in the manaufacture of their confectionary. 

I should be grateful, they have acted quickly in the face of lots of complaints and public opinion, they have splashed themselves all over the British media with apologies, and timed their back-tracking to co-incide with the start of National Vegetarian Week. I may be cynical, but I can't help thinking that they will end up coming out of all this as the good guy. Oh well, at least Maltesers won't have tentacles in future.

Here's the story.
