Robertson's jam, a breakfast table fixture for generations and a symbol of controversy over its use of the Golly character, is being axed. The makers of the jam have decided to concentrate on another brand, Hartley's, instead.

Robertson's has been part of British life since 1864, when the business was started by Scottish grocer James Robertson behind his shop in Paisley.

The Golly character, a black-faced minstrel doll with colourful clothes, was on the label for the best part of a century.

It spawned badge collections and dolls but was condemned by some as an offensive caricature of black people, based on slave dolls.

The Golly was axed from TV adverts in 1988, and disappeared from the labels in 2002.

Oh my god, its like a part of our heritage. It was bad enough when they were forced to removed the Golly Wog lol, now the jam itself is leaving our shelves!!

Cue internet petition lmao...

What brand do you buy Ste? I usually buy the ones that are sold in Home Bargains tbh, its a decent brand but quite cheap, can't remember the name.

Can't say I have ever bought Robertsons or Hartleys... like Golden Shreds though, but I often get homemade stuff off me mum.

Surely it can't be better than home made stuff or the stuff you get from farm shops?
