KFC is selling winglets‚ not chicken wings: ASA
A KFC customer has complained about the size of the fast food restaurant’s chicken wings.
Shaakir Ismail complained to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) about a KFC advertisement on its website promoting its Zinger Wings . It shows a photograph of four chicken pieces and states: “Four Hot Zinger Wings. Four Succulent winglets breaded in our hot Zinger breading to give you the delicious hot flavour you love cooked to crispy-brown perfection.”
Ismail said it should be advertised as “Two Zinger Wings”‚ because the photograph shows two chicken wings cut into four pieces.
KFC said it would not change the advertisement‚ because it consists of four wing pieces made from two full chicken wings. The fast food restaurant told the ASA it is the industry norm to advertise “individual wing pieces as wings” and referred to Chicken Licken’s Hot Wings‚ Hungry Lion’s Zamba Wings‚ Spur’s Buffalo wings and Burger King’s Chicken Wings.

News 2 days ago The ASA referred to a similar complaint against KFC in 2006. It ruled at the time: “Although the advertising states ‘HOT & SPICY WINGS’‚ it has been established that [the] Department of Health does not have a definition [of] a ‘wing’.”
In their latest ruling‚ the ASA said it is clear KFC is selling half wings as the description below the photograph states.
“The hypothetical reasonable person viewing the advertisement would not be misled into thinking that he/she is getting full wings when the illustration and the descriptor all point to the fact that it is half wings.”
The ASA dismissed the complaint on Wednesday.
Julius Malema wants to be king: Mngxitama
Black First Land First leader Andile Mngxitama has defended the Ingonyama Trust and Zulu tribal land – insisting that calls to dissolve the body were born of jealousy and hatred for the Zulu people.
Mngxitama was speaking at a press conference on Friday‚ called by a conglomerate of civic organisations‚ business forums and religious bodies under the banner of “Radical Economic Transformation Defenders” who are pro Jacob Zuma.
The organisation has now rallied behind the Zulu monarch‚ King Goodwill Zwelithini‚ who issued a call to protect the autocracy of the trust and the tribal authority.
This after a high-level Panel on the Assessment of Key Legislation and Fundamental Change recommended that the Ingonyama Trust Act should be repealed or amended and the Ingonyama Trust should be collapsed‚ ceding control of traditional land to the state.
Mngxitama used the platform to lash out at EFF leader Julius Malema‚ saying that he harboured a deep-seated jealousy of Zwelithini.
Zuma’s backers vow to fight for Zulu king’s land Former president Jacob Zuma’s closest allies – church leaders and business forums operating under the banner of “RET Defenders” – have vowed to stand … Politics 2 days ago “The ANC and Malema are driven by envy. They are jealous of the king. They look at the king and the respect that he has and they want that. That is why they want to take the land away‚” he said.
“Malema wants to be king of South Africa and that is why he says they want to take land and give it to the state…this is about hating Zulu people‚” he added.
Mngxitama said that Malema‚ as well as the ANC in power‚ misunderstood expropriation of land without compensation.
“Land expropriation seeks to address the issue of black people‚ who are landless‚ not dispossess them all over again‚” he said.
Zwelithini has called on all his subjects to amass in Ulundi on July 4‚ when he will address the “attack” on the trust and his authority.
Nkosentsha Shezi‚ of controversial funeral parlour body Nafupa SA‚ said their support of Zwelithini and the tribal authority was unequivocal.
“Our uniting principle is to fight for radical economic transformation and to wrest control of the economy of white monopoly capital. This economy still belongs to those who also dispossessed our land‚” he said.
He said that they would be gallant in their fight to protect the tribal land and the Ingonyama Trust‚ and that their efforts would be guided by the monarch.
This comes as public hearings into land expropriation begin across the country. Malema could not immediately be reached to respond to Mngxitama’s claims.

The ‘Resistance’ Is Turning into a National Lynch Mob | Trending
chat comments The ‘Resistance’ Is Turning into a National Lynch Mob Karl Marx once acidly quipped that history repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce. But that’s not even right. When violent ideologies shred the fabric of common life, as is happening right now, there’s nothing funny about it. Not for those of us who have to live through such “interesting times.” No doubt you’ve read the headlines. A Latin American-style socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has just effectively won a seat in the U.S. Congress, defeating a long-time Democratic Party boss. One of her close campaign associates is a Jew-baiting demagogue , who whipped up votes by denouncing “greedy Jewish landlords.” The president’s press secretary, Sarah Sanders, and her family were evicted from The Red Hen restaurant by an owner who disapproves of her politics. Then that owner led a mob to follow some of the Sanders family and harass them at the next place they went to eat. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen tried to eat at a Mexican restaurant, only to face a mob of protestors inside the eatery screaming “Shame” amidst profanities and insults. Florida Attorney General (and frequent defender of President Trump on Fox News) Pam Bondi was identified, harassed, and spat on when she tried to watch the new Mr. Rogers movie. These courageous radicals seem to enjoy picking on women. But let’s be fair. When there are enough of them, they are willing to go after men. Remember the cast of Hamilton taking the stage to humiliate Vice President Pence? A menacing mob gathered outside presidential speechwriter Stephen Miller’s apartment, just this week. Or if they have the weapons: It was only a year ago that a Bernie Sanders volunteer tried a one-man military coup, attempting to murder the entire Republican leadership of our Congress. In the midst of this unhinged, overheated environment, a member of Congress is pouring gasoline on the fire. Rep. Maxine Waters urged protestors to harass government officials and presidential staffers in every sphere of life. Don’t forget that Rosie O’ Donnell called for a military coup to prevent Trump’s inauguration. Madonna spoke of “blowing up the White House.” Kathy Griffin posed like an ISIS terrorist, holding a wax version of the president’s bloodied head. One-time actor Peter Fonda opined that Trump’s young son Barron ought to be thrown in a cell and gang-raped. To its credit, the Republican National Committee has taken notice of these scary trends. The montage it produced has already gone mega-viral: https://www.youtube.com/embed/eFRHX6glTSM We’ve seen this kind of rhetoric just once before since America was founded — in the build-up to our Civil War. Southern leaders who dreaded the end of their “peculiar institution” outlawed abolitionist newspapers and books, defying the First Amendment. They drove out preachers and political activists with threats of violence. They even outlawed the practice of setting slaves free, as George Washington once had in his last will and testament. Pro-slavery radicals had long spoken of black people as part of a lesser species. By the 1850s, they started dehumanizing anti-slavery whites — and even all Yankees. Unwilling to simply hold onto their slaves and exploit them, slavery advocates insisted on expanding that practice to the Pacific and dreamed of creating a “slave empire” that annexed Cuba and Mexico.
White House chief of staff John Kelly expected to step down sometime this summer
The Trump administration is prepping for another departure.
Advertisement White House chief of staff John Kelly is ready to leave his post and could step down as early as next week, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.
Kelly may stick around until after President Trump’s upcoming European trip, but he doesn’t intend to remain with the White House past July 31. The former Marine general replaced Reince Priebus on that date last year.
Trump is already looking at replacements and has zeroed in on Nick Ayers, Vice President Pence’s chief of staff, and Mick Mulvaney, who currently heads the Office of Management and Budget and is the acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Kelly was initially touted for his military background and seen as a force of order and calm in a chaotic West Wing. But he has often found himself at the center of the myriad controversies that have embroiled the Trump administration.
Kelly’s credibility took its biggest hit in February when domestic abuse allegations emerged against former White House staff secretary Rob Porter. Kelly defended Porter amid concerns over security and other issues.
Trump and Kelly have reportedly grown distant in recent months. In April, Kelly denied reports that he called Trump an “idiot” and mocked his lack of policy knowledge.
The White House has been plagued by turnover as top staffers have made their way to the exits faster than past administrations. Roughly half of the people who have held top spots within the West Wing have departed.
Numerous outlets confirmed that Trump has been weighing replacements. A White House spokeswoman said Trump dismissed the report as “absolutely not true” and “fake news.”

I guess they both realized that they got as much PR from the relationship as they could. Lexi
Thank god. That means no more staged pics of them randomly kissing in the middle of the street in perfect view of the camera.
