    Indeed, makes you wonder why Lidl felt it needed to do it in the first place....

    It's best practice when starting a thread for there to be something more than just a dropped link.

    I wonder if they'll remove all other "offensive food items" from their stores just in case the sight of a pork chop gets on someones tits?

    Crazy world, eh?

    "I am deeply offended by the alterations made to the depictions of Greek churches on your products," wrote Rupert Dodds, from Cyprus. "The message I receive clearly is that you have no respect for Christians and do not want us as customers.”

    That's right, Rupert from Cyprus, Lidl don't want Christian customers, so they removed a little poxy cross from a picture that most people didn't even know was there.

    I can't wait until I retire abroad, and I can while away my time complaining about stuff in the U.K. that doesn't affect me in the slightest :rotfl:

    Well this is a forum. You post a topic and ask a question to start a debate or if you need help with something. Just posting a link and doing a runner isn't really the way to do it. That's me posting as a member not a moderator by the way.

    That's almost worse :devil: :D

    Now you're likely to get people posting "what's your opinion?, " or "don't you have an opinion?", or "you first" :D

    Good on Lidl for removing something that has no bearing on what's inside the packet.
    The more that do the same the better.

    Take a bow!

    However there are 'more-reasons' I'd suggest than the headline states
