I always like the line from the film Wall Street: "Don't Get Emotional About Stock". It's so true.
But we're seeing it today with Cadbury's takeover by Kraft where people are bringing up the creation of the model village of Bourneville, community awareness and how it's a great British institute being taken over by a "processed cheese maker".
The fact is that Cadbury's today is nothing like it was. It's a large corporation operating around the world. Over many decades it has reduced the number of people in the UK as it is.
But another slightly amusing thing to this foodie is that Cadbury's chocolate is like the processed cheese of chocolate. The chocolate that Kraft currently produces is no worse than what Cadbury's produces (you can exclude Green and Black's which Cadbury also owns).
