London news 'I staged a protest outside M&S to support Aldi's Caterpillar campaign' Uk news
PremierLeague-News.Com - There comes a point in life when it's important to take a stand, this is that time
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! If you've not been living under a rock for the last month (or just don't care about supermarkets), you're probably aware that Aldi and Marks & Spencer's are having a bit of a row. In a nutshell, M&S has entered into legal action with Aldi over a perceived appropriation of Colin the Caterpillar's image. M&S believes Aldi's Cuthbert chocolate cake is "riding on the coattails" of Colin's clout and wants the rival supermarket to stop selling it. If you think that was the most ridiculous part, you'd be wrong. Since the legal action was announced, the two supermarkets have been bickering on social media in an endless war of hashtags. Of course, this doesn't interest everyone - why should the man on the street concern himself with the machinations of two faceless corporations. That was what I thought too, until a mysterious package arrived on my door bearing a gift from Aldi's PR team. *See the way I've slipped that in.. that's right I'm a big deal, I'm known to various supermarkets. Not impressed yet? I once had some coupons offered to me by Tesco after I reviewed their frankly outstanding £2 breakfast. They never actually arrived, but you get the idea.. A pretty BIG deal.

.. ***This is in no way to say I am in the pocket of either Aldi or Tesco. As a journalist, I am bound to impartiality and only report what is fair and accurate. Anyway where were we? Ah yes - in the package there was a note which had been carefully printed in what I must stress was a beautiful font.
Can't really argue with that
After reading that, I immediately knew what side I was on in this most important of debates. Raising money for cancer patients is a fantastic idea, no matter which way you cut the Caterpillar cake. With newly found resolve and a steely determination to help Aldi's cause I plotted my next course of action. I knew in my heart of hearts what I had to do, I had to stage an immediate protest at my nearest M&S. A small but passionate protest
A protest of one is still a protest
Not wanting to fall foul of the government's new policing bill, I chose to keep my protest relatively small and only asked three of my friends to join me. After two declined and one rudely told me I was a 'melt' I decided to go it alone. People often forget Greta Thunberg started her climate strike by herself and look how well that went. The message speaks for itself. After posing outside Muswell Hill's drizzly M&S and making a brief speech to some disinterested commuters and a line of traffic I headed inside, soaking wet but determined to make my point.
