Via @sscrltt, a decent post at Liberal Vision regarding the constant nagging that the state has peppered TV (and every other channel of) advertising with over the last year or so.
As is quite common these days, my much-loved weekend of sport was once again intermittantly interrupted with Government messages attempting make me a better citizen, protect me from my own stupidity, or both.
Television shares must surely be set to take a tumble as it slowly dawns on people that we cant actually afford to subsidise broadcasters in this fashion any longer (just last Spring it was reported that the Government was bombarding us with 10,000 ads a day and was set to become Britains single biggest advertiser.) I thought that I had read that Government was set to slash spending on this nonsense, but when I ask you. When?
