Bon Jour la Darling, When someone whose product graces my kitchen crosses the line, well, there's going to be trouble. I apologise for interrupting your regularly scheduled emails, but I have come to learn of some very disturbing information. As you may be aware, New Zealand passed the Civil Unions bill, allowing gay, lesbian and straight couples to have their partnerships recognised in law. So far, so good. Now, for many years I have been extolling the virtues of Hubbards Breakfast Cereals. But, I have discovered that Mr Hubbard has withdrawn his support for the Civil Unions bill, and said some very unkind things indeed. Now, usually I'm not much of a political girl. But when someone whose product graces my kitchen crosses the line, well, there's going to be trouble. From this moment on LaQuisha no longer recognises Hubbards as a brand. Furthermore the LaQuisha seal of approval is hereby revoked. And I urge you to cease buying the Hubbards breakfast cereals. If you like, you can go to the link below to send an email to Mr Hubbard to let him know what you think. LaQuisha UPDATE 15-DEC-04 HUBBARD RESPONDS Dear LaQuisha Thank you for you email and I am sorry that you have had trouble with my viewpoint on the Civil Union Bill. I am totally tolerant of those that have a different view to mine and, therefore, I trust that you can also be tolerant of those who have a different view to you. I also appreciate the fact that it is a rule of Parliament and all the people that the legislation is now passed and that, being the case, I then fully accept the situation. Please accept my best wishes for the coming season. With kind regards Dick Hubbard LaQuisha, DIck Hubbard - 13th December 2004
