Busybody Tries To Ban Goodbody
Despite the never ceasing attempts by Nanny and her acolytes to suppress common sense, once in a while common sense does actually prevail in Nanny Britain.
One such example of common sense occurred in March when the Portman Group, which regulates brewers, rejected a busybody attempt by Alcohol Concern to ban the logo used by Wye Valley Brewery on their Dorothy Goodbody stout.
Their alleged crime?
Alcohol Concern felt that the blonde lady showing her thighs was "sexually suggestive".
Alcohol and sex are as inexorably linked as salt and pepper.
Half of the bonking in the world wouldn't have occurred without a stiff belt of booze beforehand.
Dorothy Goodbody stout has been in existence for 15 years and the Portman Group thought that Alcohol Concern were talking bollocks, they found that the brewery had not crossed the line from acceptable to irresponsible marketing.
Vernon Amor, managing director of Wye Valley Brewery, said:
"If you were to ban Dorothy Goodbody, where would it end?
Next thing you know there would be a ban on all the Carry On films and the iconic British seaside postcards."
I have little doubt that Nanny would love to ban those things as well!
