    Just out of curiosity...

    ...did anyone see the latest commercial for home insurance for John Lewis? It depicts a youngster who had raided mum’s room and dressed up in some of her clothes having first absolutely trashed the room. The little darling had applied makeup not only to his face, but just about every surface he came into contact with. It was like watching a human tornado in fancy dress blasting through the house. My hubby and I watched wondering what it was advertising before the tag line made it clear. Both of us thought that we could see some little cherub copying these antics if seen. I can only hope that this ad is only ever played after 9 pm as earlier would mean that there’s a greater chance of a young child seeing it and thinking “now THAT looks like fun!”

    Take care. Helen

    Haven't seen it, but I wouldn't claim on the insurance... I'd make the little horror pay for it out of his pocket money for the next 25 years.

          There could be an advertising agency pitching that idea to John Lewis right now, as the next instalment....

            Twitter on 🔥 discussing that advert today. I, like many others on here, are classed as “old school” so it’s probably best that I err on the side of caution and refrain from expressing my personal feelings about it. We’ve lost the plot in this woke country.

              I read in the Telegraph today that by criticising the John Lewis ad you may well be called "transphobic" by the saddo's on social media.

              Here is the link but it it behind a paywall https://www.telegraph.co.uk/columnis...aign=DM1506547

              The only consolation is that this woke nonsense is becoming more and more ridiculous by the day and soon the pendulum will turn.

                I really couldn’t give a monkeys about the boy dressing up in his mum’s frock or putting on some makeup, but by 6 years of age most children know the difference between playing and destroying the house like that. John Lewis home Insurance said “Let life happen” , but I somehow think that if you explained how your child had gone on a wrecking spree while you sat by shell shocked I get the feeling they would be asking the parent “Well, did you try to stop him/her doing that?” I know that when my children got into mischief I was on it like a ton of bricks and would get them to stop what they were doing and sort it out. They would also get a right royal telling off from me and their dad when he got home from work.

                Take care. Helen🌪

                    As in the boy was dressed in his mum’s frock, wearing makeup Annie. Very woke, very challenging to people who think that boys should play with Lego and girls should play with dolls.😉 I played with both.

                    Take care. Helen🤪

                      My sisters played with dolls but I played with Dolls Houses - a neighbouring family who emigrated donated it - I loved it and I played on building sites in my pre-school days!

                      Lego was a luxury toy which my younger sister received. I much preferred the Meccano set my brothers had.
