Philips has blamed â€œpoor consumer sentimentâ€ for limiting its plans for growth. Gerard Kleisterlee, Philips’ CEO, told the Financial Times (16 June page 21) that â€œEurope is suffering from a weakened consumer retail environmentâ€. Wrong, Mr K. Europe is not suffering, it is recovering from the false consciousness peddled by your company. You have been trying to foist the consumer electronic equivalent of SUVs onto us – but we don’t need them, and will not buy them.
