    Could you give me an example of something you wouldn't buy, and why? I'm having a hard time understanding this.

    Hmmm... He's not technically human, so it wouldn't really be like cannibalism...

    Hmmm, I haven't actually given this much thought but I believe I would buy any product found necessary to my daily life. I'm not really into politics and when it comes down to politics I have no clue what I am doing to be honest. As far as the Kraft Macaroni and Cheese thing goes..... I love Kraft Mac n Cheese...

    okay, here goes, since I don't know much about the UK politics I will only stick with the first question. I am asking: Let's just say you needed a pair of shoes, and of course there are many shoe companies. And let's just say several companies made the same style and price (not that it's possible but for the sake of the question), WOULD YOU BUY FROM THE COMPANY THAT PRODUCES THEIR SHOES IN UK (meaning jobs for the UK ppl), or WOULD YOU NOT MIND??

    If it's cheap and tastes good, I'll buy it.

    it's not weird, as a matter of fact haha some people are that EXTREME...they will not shop at a certain place just because the store donated money to a certain party

    or some shoppers would not buy clothing made in sweatshops, thats why FUBU had it short stint

    Actually yes. There are companies I won't buy products from because of where they donate money. It's not many, only the real radicals. For example I won't buy Ben & Jerry's icecream because they donate money to radical enviro-terrorist groups and continue to do so through their trust in spite of being bought out. When people start dying, I object. If I have an option between something made in China and elsewhere I choose elsewhere. I don't often have the option but I exercise it when I do.

    I don't see it as extreme just aware. I call it voting with my money, or free-market economy in action.
