When a defence is not a defence

It came as Tim Cook , the Apple Chief Executive, said he did not understand the “ferocious” criticism the company had received and appeared to attempt to defend his organisation by insisting they did not murder babies.

Tim Cook, the chief executive, claimed critics motivated by an anti-aid agenda were “gunning” for Apple leaving the company “savaged”.

In an interview with The Guardian, he said: “The intensity and ferocity of the attack makes you wonder, what did we do? We murdered babies in their cots? All we did was make damn great phones and obey the tax laws.”

  1. What this shows above and beyond anything else is that these establishment types haven’t the faintest connection with the ordinary man on the street. They truly do live in a different world.

  2. Trouble it, they have been complicit in getting babies murdered by pumping money into shiteholes without regard for how it might be used. The aid is stolen by the armed men and used to feed them so they can keep on with the rain of terror on the local population. All so one of the warlords can have the most Mercedes in the country.

  3. I still can’t believe they paid so much for sex. To a 16 year old mother of one mind you. If anyone thinks they violated Age of Consent laws have I got news for you.

    After all, I thought they supported the People’s Revolution – and that ain’t Reasonably Priced Love.

    Still, I suppose that’s got nothing to do with Tim Cook. Not his problem, so to speak. Although he might be interested in the hard boiled egg.

  4. BiW–Very obscure satire. Vague and largely false accusations of tax dodging aren’t much of a parallel for Oxfam’s antics.

  5. Well one good thing has come out of the Oxfam scandal, we now know that its OK to ignore criticism of your organisation if the critics didn’t like you to start with.

  6. smfs,

    “I still can’t believe they paid so much for sex. To a 16 year old mother of one mind you. If anyone thinks they violated Age of Consent laws have I got news for you.”

    My (conspiracy) theory is that they somehow managed to get it through expenses and Friedman’s (pbuh) 4 ways of spending money apples.
