Cedric Blenkinsop, Chief Executive of Nivea, the cosmetics company, today denied that he was running a military dictatorship and exploiting his staff in order to maximise profits. He refuted these claims laid at his door by Wolfie Smith, leader of the I Dont Like Colonel Gaddafi Very Much campaign.
He continued, â€œthis stupid organisation has confused the word Libya for Nivea and commenced a mis-guided campaign against our company. Smith responded to this by saying â€˜these are the words of a military dictator grasping at the last straws of power, under a brutal regimeâ€™ and we call for a boycott of Nivea hand cream across the whole of the United Kingdom, indeed across the world.
Smith went on to explain that his organisation was also boycotting the latest auto-biography of Katie Price over non-democratic actions in Jordan and other Middle East states.
