Unban the Iceland Christmas advert
background
The new Iceland Christmas advert has been banned from being broadcast in the UK by Clearcast, as it is deemed to be politically motivated. However, in actuality it is highlighting a very real issue that Orangutans are facing today. This is no different to a Charity raising awareness of a cause.
additional details
Clearcast, the body responsible for vetting ads, said it was in breach of rules laid out in the 2003 Communications Act. One of the laws stipulates that a promotional campaign is prohibited if it is "directed towards a political end". "It was a film that Greenpeace made with the voiceover of Emma Thompson"
