Government Advertising

On the subject of Advertising one thing that really annoys me is Government adverts nannying us:

Don’t smoke,
Drink responsibly,
Cook sausages properly,
Close gates when walking in the countryside
Get your tax return in by the deadline
Don’t walk under ladders
Wear a seatbelt

The Government spent £339 million* of our money advertising to us last year, much of that stating the obvious.

Andy was discussing irritating adverts on his radio show, and read my email out on air within about 20 seconds of my writing it!
