Andrew Marr says he won’t buy from chains until they pull out of Russia


Broadcaster Andrew Marr said he would not buy from major food chains until they pulled their business out of Russia.

His announcement comes as corporate giants are facing pressure from consumers to end their business in the country following the continued assault on Ukraine.

Marr made his stance on his show on LBC radio, featuring McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, Pepsi and Starbucks shortly after announcing they were shutting down.

On LBC’s Tonight with Andrew Marr, the presenter asked shadow secretary of state David Lammy for his thoughts on boycotting brands.

Lammy replied: “It doesn’t seem like it should happen, they should just back off in Russia.”

He added: “Just as you’ve seen Microsoft and others make those announcements, I want us and our population to unite so that it’s not a boycott, it’s not an individual action. .

“It’s about governments making sure that collectively those companies do the right thing, and I’m sure we’ll see more of that in the coming days.”

Marr replied that he had planned the stand, saying, “For me, it might not be a huge personal sacrifice but I wouldn’t eat Burger King, drink Coca Cola or Pepsi or go to a Starbucks until they leave Russia, I can tell you that.”
