M&S and Hooters Bristol (insert ‘joke’ here)
Carrie Dunn // 15 September 2010
Just to flag up one of the stories mentioned in our open thread this week – Hooters are planning to open a new ‘restaurant’ in Bristol, with the city council buying the disingenuous line that it’s “family-friendly”. The campaign against it is already up and running and they need your support – No To Hooters in Bristol.
The hugely influential parenting website Mumsnet has also picked up this story, primarily because it seems that Marks and Spencer, that bastion of family-friendly respectability, who happily hopped on the Mumsnet train in their ‘Let Girls Be Girls’ campaign against the “sexualisation” of young girls, are leasing the building to Hooters.
Have a read of the Mumsnet thread too and join their campaign.
