Politics and Primark
David Cameron has commented on Primark's padded children's bikini's as 'disgraceful'.
'There is a classic example today where Primark are apparently pushing padded bras on seven-year-olds, which I think is completely disgraceful. The sort of country I want is one where it is not just the Government that feels outraged about the early commercialisation and sexualisation of our children, but companies should stop doing it, they should take some responsibility.'
Primark have since removed the bikinis from the shelves and have donated any profits to children's charities.
Gordon Brown has also commented, saying 'All of us as parents can recognise there's something wrong when companies are pushing our kids into acting like little grown-ups when they should be enjoying being children.'
Am I the only one that thinks it's not Primark's fault, but the women and children who buy the product? So they create padded bikinis, but having a kid wear a bikini anyway shows that kids want to look grown up. It's one thing selling the product, but surely these politicians should be worried about the women buying them for their kids...
