An Advertisement You Could Never Run In New Zealand

Cactus Kate sent me this yesterday at lunchtime as she was flicking through the only newspaper in Hong Kong she can understand.

The only question in New Zealand would be which feminist would turn up first on Campbell Live calling for a boycott of the product?

Cactus explained in Hong Kong that women from upper and middle class families are forbidden heavily discouraged by their family to marry men who cannot afford to keep them in the style they have become accustomed to as acceptable by their father.  So the text will not be viewed as offensive.

    All the companies that sell products which use race or religion could actually move onto something like this, as all that stuff is old hat. The time has come
