leave a comment »

Following a complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority Ltd, HS2 Ltd has pulled its “clogged arteries” video from Youtube (at the time of writing, it is still available as a ‘showcase‘ item on the animation company’s Vimeo channel).

Unfortunately, the ASA’s reach does not extend to what comes out of the mouths of government ministers. If it did, Patrick McLoughlin might be a man of few words. “Clogged arteries” and “our country” are two of his favourite phrases.
