God no.... just bin it

That's terrible! Anyone who gets it should pay for it to raise money for Ebola!

To be fair it is dreadful - Why they couldn't just re-release the old one I don't know.

Asda will have already paid for the CD's, so I assume giving them away won't affect the amount of money that goes to charity.

haha

Then it wouldn't be given away, reason it's been given away is because no one wants to buy it, even if it's for charity, they sold so many copies in the first week and then tried to screw more money out of it by putting it in shops that haven't ever sold cd singles or in ones that stopped selling them years ago. Better to give it away then chuck it in the bin:(

haha

Must admit i downloaded it from a torrent and gave £10 to the Childrens hospice. I dont give to overseas charities

I deliver for Asda and they were giving 2 of the cds away free with every delivery today, and some people still sent them back. They literally can't give the things away lol

Because kids don't know/care who Duran Duran or Spandau Ballet are.

Kids also dont care about Ebola and the plight of other third world countries either so your point is moot.

I'm sure they don't, but they WILL buy anything associated with one direction.

You don't give to overseas charities?!!
I will NEVER understand that mentality.

My comment was not referring specifically to this deal, just that there was more money to be made by Bob and his mates, in re-recording the song rather than re-releasing the old version.

I wouldn't be so sure of that conviction. Children, in my experience, are far more inclined to care about the plight of other people. It is us adults that tend to concoct reasons not to help others.

I'm not entirely sure how it works, but surely the store has already paid for the CD's, so the money will have already gone to the charity ?

If Bob Geldof and chums stopped using elaborate tax dodges, it would have made more money in a weekend than this single did in total.

The word you are looking for is gullible.


I got sent one of these with my online shopping. Was grateful as its rare to get anything for free, though I have no intention of listening to it.

The word you are looking for is gullible.;)



The children are gullible for caring about others? Or I am gullible for thinking children care about others?

Whichever side of that line you are on, you are wrong. Children care because they are unencumbered by the excuses we adults come up with to not do the right thing.
