Sure?

Advertisers reckon they're on to £140 million lost revenue per annum when the ban on junk food ads during kid's TV starts to kick in next year.

I'm with you, and an ad never made me go for anything (quite the opposite in fact) but watch a bunch of clamouring weans planted in front of telly for hours to shut them up, and when the ads are on, be thankful they're not yours.

Brainwashing at its best.

I went to a party in that place to mark the queens silver jubilee in 77 and up until a few months ago my mum n dad got freebies on the doorstep every week thanks to a neighbour who worked there.

Sad sight, only brightened by the fact the new Goth advert is absolutely brilliant!

Really good shot on the last one there Fossil 8)
