Would you buy it or not?

I am thinking of making what the shopping channels would call: 'a considered purchase ' ie probably overpriced and overhyped.
Anyway, whilst considering the purchase, I find that I am at odds with the company owner's politics.
Do I buy or not?

  • I suspect I am at odds with most company owners' politics!
    I don't buy much and only when necessary.

    It depends. If they are the only people making this thing and if you really need it then it looks like you have no choice. If other people make it or if you really don’t need it, then don’t.

    I'm afraid I don't understand the purpose of this poll.

    If no one else makes it, either you don't need it (i.e. no one needs it) or someone else WILL be making it (or something very like it) quite soon. So wait a while

    I don't really NEED it, but every time I go to buy it, I think what an a*****le he is

    It's a daft question.  Why would you give your money to someone you know is an arsehole and, if it's a bloody Dyson, there's defnitely something better thought out just around the corner.

    If it was only his politics I didn't agree with, I would just buy it. If it was his morals - now that would be a different result.
