Primark didn't keep you clothed, slaves in sweatshops did. Cheap western goods are largely the product of western-enforced slave labour in foreign countries.
Its not just your mother's hard work, but also the hard work of the people who created your clothes, ie: the sweatshop slaves that primark exploits. Primark as a company did nothing for yours or any other working class family. -
"Without Primark we wouldnt have clothes!"

No, without workers making clothes you wouldn't have clothes.

"Actually, my mums hard graft put clothes on my back."

Yes precisely, that graft & the graft of sweatshop slaves clothed you, not billionaire shareholders of Primark & Co.
Western 'discount' companies like Primark, H&M etc, are as we speak making immense profits from the exploitation of Syrian children in Turkish factories, children whom NATO made refugees. uk.businessinsider.com/fashion-brands…
No one said "dont buy from primark", many poor workers, myself included, are forced to buy products from such companies, that's capitalism. I simply informed you that its not the companies 'kindness' that delivers cheap goods, but their exploitation.
The only people 'patronising' the working class are expensively-educated & very well-paid 'journalists' telling us that exploitative companies like primark kindly put clothes on our backs out of the goodness of their hearts.
