Gay Police Update

Gay Police Association advert (June 2006)Remember that gay police advert in the UK which Coxsoft Art News covered back in June, the one which linked poof-bashing to religious nutters, mainly Christians, but also some Muslims? The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has found that the Gay Police Association (GPA) advert did breach advertising rules. So what? This powerful advert did its job. Does anyone get sacked or fined or prosecuted? Of course not. The GPA is a toothless watchdog. An ASA spokeswoman cheerfully declared "This is our most complained about campaign advert of the year so far." So far! What's next? The Koran?
