Action Against Ashley
23 January 2014 21:04 Post ID: #405639
A few of us so far have decided to take action against those in commercial agreement with Newcastle United and therefore Mike Ashley . Below is a copy of a standard letter which we are aiming to email Harriet Green of Thomas Cook . The suggested time at which to email this is late Sunday in order for it to be waiting nicely in her inbox for Monday morning (If you can't do it then please still email at a time convenient to yourself but NOT prior to 7pm Sunday evening the idea behind this is to create a "blitz" effect). Please refrain from mentioning words associated with Newcastle United or Mike Ashley in the heading of the email. I suggest a generic type heading so that it cannot be easily blocked. More importantly please spread the word by any means you have to do so . This is hopefully the start of a key area of protest. Raising awareness of our unhappiness with the current regime. It is up to each one of us .


(It wouldn't hurt to cc it for pressoffice@thomascook.com)

harriet.green@thomascook.com

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a member of a Newcastle United supporters forum known as TalkOfTheTyne. I wish it to be known that while your company remains in commercial partnership with Newcastle United, under the stewardship of Mike Ashley I will not use any of your services, or purchase any of your goods. I will also encourage others not to do so.

We urge you to re-think your commercial partnership arrangements with Sports Direct/Mike Ashley. Good publicity is invaluable, and we will seek to publicise any favourable stance you may choose to take, not only in the press, but across the various fan forums.

We would welcome any response you care to make in respect of this request.

Sincerely

----------------------------------------------------------

Edit by TNMW. Also we have a twitter account - @truthofthetyne

Ok, let's all send an email to this person between 7 and 8 pm this Sunday.

I'm in, and I reckon we should choose a subject line and all use the same one.

From tiny acorns.

Can we pin the template at the top of the board maybe?

Let's get on this and see if we can't make a concerted effort.

All of us, together, can make a difference.

Plat's doesn't matter if it's after then just not before, if people can only send it Monday it's better to do that than nothing . I want an avalanche of emails, if we got a "Hundred For Harriet " or her secretary I'd be made up .

I still think Bobs dog shit idea would have been a winner as well, although smearing dog shit on sports direct gear might improve on the product.

It's a standard email . If people want to reword it it's not an issue, it conveys the message effectively for me . To my mind do we say too much , surely better to have us being enquired after . C'mon toony get it on the from page or at least report on it if your not able to be on a particular side (not having a pop just mean in your role as grand vizer) . Mention it on twitter, link to the thread etc etc .

Through Twitter i can link to the thread nee bother but to do an article on this alone would need careful wording in order to gain what we want it to.

One thing I would suggest is that we maybe open a new twitter account with it's sole purpose to do what the email does but on a wider audience scale.

All it takes is for a high profile account to retweet it and Bob's ya uncle.

I nominate you to run it Keggy, although i can set it up with the usual bells and whistles.

Surely an article could be done if you take a reportage angle . "Several fans have decided enough is enough and are mounting a campaign" and all that, you can remain impartial . Game for the Twitter (I could run it a bit based on the tott one but not set it up so if you could do that that would be great ) .

Aye Keggy I can do both.

Will set up the twitter thing first before linking it into the angled article.

Just got to think of a campaign name for the account.

So far ive got:

Newcastle Re-United - The campaign to get all forums together to provide one voice in a battle against greed. (or something like that)


Truth On The Tyne - The account that lays it all bare on the dealings of Newcastle United and it's partners.


United Against Ashley -

Probably good enough but to have more effect and more interest, we'd need either Ashley or the toon's name prominent somehow.

Truth on the Tyne has a ring to it.

I'll be happy to knock up an article, or a feature if you like.

I'll do one anyway as I have a bit of time on my hands, and if you want to use it then be my guest, i you don't I've not lost anything except a few minutes of my time.

Is it just the main man of each board you speak to? I'm utterly convinced some of them are on the payroll of Ashley, through whatever method. The Blog one in particular is bizarrely pro-Ashley, and all the content from it stems from biased articles. That's not free speech.

It varies on each site as to which rank you get but i don't think anyone of a pro ashley stance is on the payroll as such.

It's more likely they've been given a heads up on certain things like news that can be released through their site to gain greater hits.

eg. The Newcastle footy mad site just goes mad, all day long regurgitating non stories. I don;t know the chief on there but Orca does I think.

We are starting a campaign to email the companies that are associating themselves with NUFC, and tell them we will refuse to buy their products/services until they withdraw their support for Ashley. We will also be posting negative comments on forums and encouraging other fans to do so.

One company at a time, we all email en masse.

Then the next company a week later.. the more the word spreads, the more people that email, and hopefully the less companies that want to be associated with Ashley.
