Nanny Bans Bob

Nanny Bans BobPoor old Bob Geldof, all he ever wanted to do (apart from make money selling records) was to feed the world.

Now Nanny has come in and put a stop to that.

Make Poverty History (MPH) was banned this week from television and radio advertising in Britain.

Nanny's advertising watchdog Ofcom said that the goals of its campaign, to feed the starving, were political and therefore outlawed.

Ofcom said:

"We have reached the unavoidable conclusion that MPH is a body whose objects are 'wholly or mainly' political as defined under the Act. MPH is therefore prohibited from advertising on television or radio".

Why is it then, that we are bombarded on a daily basis with Nanny's adverts for health, social security, tax credits etc; which are paid for by us, yet are clearly designed to support Nanny's government?

They are political as well, surely?
