Primark, Padded Bikinis and the Paedophile Pound.

A push up bra for very young girls from Asda, a pole dancing kit for children from Tesco, Playboy children’s stationary from W H Smith and now a padded bikini top for girls as young as seven from Primark. It seems our public morals are being determined purely by commercial interests and, as someone observed, this is a bid for the paedophile pound.

What astonishes me is that someone sat down and considered this a good idea.

‘Clothing chain Primark has withdrawn the sale of its range of padded bikini tops for girls as young as seven following criticism.

The company apologised to customers for "causing offence" and said it would donate profits to a children's charity.

The Children's Society criticised Primark for "premature sexualisation and unprincipled advertising".’
