All consumers have the right to choose whether they buy a company’s products or not. Our reasons may include price or avoidance of certain chemicals.
We may disapprove of an animal testing regime or the use of animal by-products in a product when other ingredients could be used.
We might prefer to buy Fairtrade products which give workers a fair wage. We might be against the use of child labour to make clothes. Or we might prefer natural fibres to synthetics which don’t biodegrade for hundreds of years.
Our reasons for avoiding products and companies can be political too. We might not want to buy a product from a company investing in a régime which we disapprove of.
All these reasons are valid.
As a Remainer, you can choose to stop buying products or services from companies which support Brexit. That’s just as valid as any other reason and it’s your choice.

Lord Digby Jones volunteered to lead the Leave campaign during the EU referendum. Lord Digby Jones EU referendum campaign . He has also tweeted in support of Brexit, calling Remainers ‘Remoaners’. Surprisingly he felt that unsigned deals, not yet negotiated, were something to crow about, which is a bit worrying from a man who spent six years as Director General of the CBI. Excluding his many directorships of companies which most Remainers won’t use here are the ones to boycott, if you wish.
