I took a considerable time to write a review of a recent purchase from Argos after being asked to do so by Argos, I have now been notified that they will not be using my review.
Apparently, some information contained in my review did not relate to the product, which I disagree with. Here’s the email I received, sent from a nice chap named Martin Keane:
Subject: Catalogue number 730/4778 Challenge Xtreme 40cm Push Petrol Rotary Lawnmower – 149cc.

I haven’t yet decided whether or not I’m going to have more fun with this- I could always play the discrimination card. We’ll see what happens.
