Asda declares baby's arse 'pornographic'

Tom Watson

Sensible

This is clearly a very sensible policy on ASDA's part. There are innumerable documented cases of people spontaneously become paedophiles after only a glimpse of a picture of their own infantile ankle in so called ‘family snaps’.

Surely the issue at stake is considerably wider: more sweeping changes are required. Perhaps a forty eight hour police amnesty should be imposed prior to the introduction of random door to door searches for such inflammatory ‘familial memorabilia’.

A review of all art work is clearly also called for. Botticelli produced some highly provocative cherub’s bottoms in his time. Is there any way his family could be made to pay for his salacious crimes retrospectively? Someone must pay.

ASA slaps down Vodafone 'unlimited' data claims

Stop

VodafoneFacebook Ads

The current vodafone Facebook access ads are explicit in their use of the term 'unlimited' http://www.vodafone.com/start/media_relations/news/local_press_releases/uk_press_releases/2007/unlimited_internet.html

With a caveat tucked away at the bottom of '*subject to a fair usage policy of 500MB / per month'.

Whilst 500MB/month is a generous amount, it is not unlimited. Am I just being pedantic or should this ad not also be disallowed?

Sadly unable to find a picture of Anna in any of the obvious places (I thought students had to be on Facebook).

Natasha Ellis-Jones however appears to be be very much more forthcoming...

Fitna the Movie: Geert Wilders' film about the Quran (English)

** 30/3/2008: Liveleak Update **

On the 28th of March LiveLeak.com was left with no other choice but to remove the film "fitna" from our servers following serious threats to our staff and their families. Since that time we have worked constantly on upgrading all security measures thus offering better protection for our staff and families. With these measures in place we have decided to once more make this video live on our site. We will not be pressured into censoring material which is legal and within our rules. We apologise for the removal and the delay in getting it back, but when you run a website you don't consider that some people would be insecure enough to threaten our lives simply because they do not like the content of a video we neither produced nor endorsed but merely hosted.

Thanks Danny!

Danny, I’d just like to pass on my thanks for the link to www.answersingenesis.org. Very funny :)

Most amusing I think were statements like:

“In fact, there is no proof whatsoever that the world and its fossil layers are millions of years old.” (Ham, K., Dinosaurs and the Bible)

which I’m sure a clearly intelligent and educated man such as yourself will be chuckling over just as much as I was. For the rest of you less enlightened folks the deliberate omission here is ‘Carbon Dating’. How we laughed eh Danny?
