Positive message sent, even though I heard Ben Cohen on the radio today, bemoaning what had become of the company under unilever, and the fact that they had not kept to the terms and he Jerry now have no control over anything they do, even though their names and faces are on the products. Still, any signs of decency are to be encouraged.
