Banning of Trocaire advert

Does anyone else think that the banning of this advert is ridiculous??

I can't get my head around it...

What on earth is wrong with it?

This is the first I'm hearing of the ban.

Pedantic maybe, but not ridiculous. It breaks BCI regulations, therefore banned.

I consider it as a shocking interpretation of the law.

I mean how much political crap are we going to get thrown at us through the media in the next few months? And this isn't allowed??

You mean one the off broadcasts, as opposed to adverts that are repeated numerous times an hour, let alone a day?

Probably because they aren't covered in the bill.

I don't know if you've been listening to the radio recently but the amount of airtime that our politicians are getting to push their own agendas is quite substantial and repetitive..

Any ads that seek to change the poltical status quo will fall under it e.g. change of legislation. These rules have applied in Ireland for nearly 20 years.

Having studied the Act quite a bit in postgrad I don't think the political aspect of it will hold up with current ECHR jurisprudence.

What about all the previous trocaire campaigns and other ads on telly about economic inequality? I heard an ad on the radio today about racism.
