Yet more whiners with a big sad on
Apparently it was a slow news day at the Guardian - Halfords gives in over chimp ads:
Halfords has bowed to pressure from animal rights groups and vowed never again to use live chimpanzees in its advertising, despite the advertising watchdog's decision to reject more than 100 complaints about the campaign.

The car and bicycle equipment chain has agreed not to use the chimps again after the Captive Animals' Protection Society called for a boycott and organised demonstrations outside its stores in protest against an advertising campaign featuring live animals riding bicycles around a Halfords store.
Remind me not to invite them to the circus.
