Had forgotten about the Victor Meldrew thread – (see myself more as a grumpy old git actually).

Talking of advertising –

What about the current radio advertising campaign by the ASA (Advertising Standards Authority) which constantly rams down our throats that "advertising must be legal, decent, and honest". As far as I can tell most advertising contravenes at least one of these principles.

Perhaps the ASA should get on with policing the system instead of doing what most regulators and government Quangos do: blowing their own trumpet and spending our money.
