Clueless PM Blames TV

I.C. adapted - The Premium Rate Numbers Swag (2007)Prime Minister Gordon Brown said in the House of Commons today that he wants the scandal over misleading TV competitions to be sorted out "quickly". The answer is simple, Gordon: all you need to do is ban premium rate telephone numbers. Back in March, Coxsoft Art called on the then Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell to make these damned things illegal (CLICK). I made the same point in April, just prior to the broadcasting of the BBC Panorama exposé TV's Dirty Secrets (CLICK). Wake up, Gordon! Why blame TV bosses for allowing themselves to be seduced by the lucrative scams offered by premium rate numbers?
