a copy of the email I've just sent to the Co-operative, who I've banked with all my working life…
Dear Sir or Madam
I am writing to express my disappointment that the Co-operative Group has decided to continue advertising in Rupert Murdoch's newspapers: http://bit.ly/mzXiTI
As a banking customer of nearly 20 years, I have been extremely proud of your ethical stance. However, I believe that this is compromised by your public support of his newspapers at this time. By continuing to advertise in them, I also feel that the Co-operative Group is implicitly condoning their unlawful and highly immoral reporting practices.
In order to help me decide whether or not to close my bank account, I would be grateful if you could respond within 7 days with an explanation as to why you believe your continued advertising is in the best interest of your existing members and customers.
