They seem to be suggesting that there is a link between using crack cocaine and crystal meth and supporting a boycott of the State of Israel. Maybe they'll end up making the boycott look cool. That's what the "just say no" campaign did for drugs. Or maybe they're on drugs themselves.
The Co-operative movement has confirmed there are no plans to alter its policy of boycotting companies which source produce from Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
Israel supporters have appealed to the organisation to revisit the issue following the resignation of Co-op chairman Len Wardle, who quit the business after revelations about the conduct of its former banking chair, Reverend Paul Flowers.
The Board of Deputies and Jewish Leadership Council this week requested a meeting with the Co-op’s new leaders to discuss the issue.
Rev Flowers, who was believed to be a key supporter of the boycott campaign, is being investigated by police over claims he bought, sold and used Class A drugs, including crystal meth and crack cocaine.
In May last year the Co-op implemented a full ban on engagement with any Israeli suppliers known to work with the settlements.
A campaign led by the We Believe group has also seen Israel supporters write to the movement’s new chair, Ursula Lidbetter, asking her to reconsider the boycott.
