    Default McDonald can sponsor kids TV - Marmite cannot advertise

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...n-adverts.html

    Marmite, cheddar cheese, raisins, Corn Flakes and honey are to remain banned from being advertised during children's television programmes, despite a year-long campaign from the food industry to change the rules.

    A quirk of the rules meant that junk food brands, such as McDonald's, could continue to sponsor children's television programmes as long as specific products were not mentioned.



    I just dont understand this atall. Maybe I am dreaming and will wake up when common sense has prevailed. Can anyone put a simple lad straight please? Thanks in advance.

    It's just another example of poorly worded legislation having an unexpected effect.

    I think Marmite should be banned anyway.

    You should be ashamed for touting such vitriol here.

    It is the amber nectar. I eat some most days. When I was three years old I used to get through a giant jar every week - I used to eat it off a teaspoon!

    So naturally they will add extra legislation? Which will be just as badly worded?

    I expect then the MPs will be taking a pay cut?
