Ireland Boycotts Harvey Norman


All Aussie Business Retailing Icon and potential saviour of the Australian economy should probably stick to retailing and leave out the history lessons, especially in Ireland. In a recent business presentation he said:
..but Ireland. Phew, just imagine you opened in Ireland; you'd want to go and cut your throat. The potato famine, someone said, the return of the potato famine in Ireland.
Way to go Gerry. Seems to me that Irish pig farmers have a better case to be unhappy with the the wholesale culling of dioxin contaminated pigs just before Christmas. Thousands have been made immediately unemployed after an animal food manufacturing plant used contaminated oil in the food production process.

Oh and by the way, talking of handouts (to deadbeats?) according to Gerry, make sure you don't give to charity during the generous season.
Asked in a new book about the role he and Harvey Norman play in the community, Mr Harvey said giving money to people who "are not putting anything back into the community" is like "helping a whole heap of no-hopers to survive for no good reason".
No doubt Harvey Norman will be hoping that a bunch of Australian no hopers will be dashing into his stores with their freshly minted money from the Rudd Governments stimulus handout.

Now that we have finished with that, make sure you go out and buy a plasma TV at Harvey Norman with your Government stimulus handout, eh Gerry?

What a nice man.

Colin,

Maybe the name The Good Guys is appropriate - I will continue buying electrical stuff from them rather than Mr Harvey, including what I am going to buy for my son from his disability pension bonus.

Harvey Norman's buy now pay later HP schemes are responsible for putting many people in the position of needing handouts.

What a tosser and an embarassment to Australia. Business can't be going too well he is turning very nasty it seems.

...and the wanker will be off like a shot to the gates of Fed Parliament with his begging bowl for a freebie handout when his business goes belly up after sensible people avoid him, proving him to be just another parasitic scab on the Aussie backside.

you all need a reality check if you think any of this is real.. It's another case of things taken out of context. look all over the web and you'll see it! whether or not its Harvey Norman , Good Guys or any other retailer in australia, they will all get smeared when they are doing well...
