    Default What makes you smile?

    Telling vodafone to pay their bloody taxes makes me smile. They owe more than 6 billion pounds in unpaid taxes. People in the UK are being asked to go with out social services and to work longer because there is 'not enough money' to pay for these services. Apparently. But if Vodafone and the other corporate welfare queens coughed up what they owe real people wouldn't have to go with out.

    Vodafone are running a campaign at the moment asking people to Tweet them and tell them what makes them smile. If you like to Twitter you can fine Vodafone here http://www.vodafone.co.uk/vodafone-u...mile/index.htm

    Just include #mademesmile http://t.co/pTkuLCU in your Tweet to be in the draw for some marvelous prizes.

    That'll bring their promotion to a sudden stop anyway.

    No way they're going to cough up any money unless the grovelment tell them to. And that's not going to happen is it.
    The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.

    Someone left a good comment at that link:

    "Prior to becoming Russian president, Putin was ahead of the KGB where it’s been said he tortured people.? Now we know how."

    Vodafone Twitter Contest Attacked by Protesters

    Under: Vodafone Date: December 14th, 2010










    Vodafone has been running a contest via Twitter whereby Vodafone asked people to tweet #mademesmile and what makes them smile, with the chance of winning free mobile phones for doing so; however apparently Vodafone’s Twitter contest was attacked by disgruntled protesters.
    According to an article over on Tech Watch by Darren Allan, the anti-tax and anti-cuts avoidance campaign run by UK Uncut learnt about Vodafone’s Twitter campaign and attacked it with their own tweets. So why did the protesters attack a Vodafone contest?
    Apparently because Vodafone is one of UK Uncut’s main targets due to apparently being let off of handing over £6 billion in owed tax to the government by George Osborne, of which UK Uncut says it is “one of the most shameless, blatant and costly examples of corporate-government cronyism in years.”
    UK Uncut supporters tweeted an avalanche of embarrassing tweets to hijack the contest with one protester apparently tweeting “Thinking of the bewildered Vodafone execs panicking into their Blackberry’s this morning #mademesmile” while posted to the UK Uncut blog was, “UK Uncut would like to thank Vodafone for all the free advertising.”
    According to coverage by The Guardian, “all tweets containing the hashtag were posted, unmoderated, on to Vodafone’s website, compounding the negative publicity and showing campaigners’ sentiments to people who might otherwise have been unaware of the controversy.”
