Don’t mention the Olympics Bill

As reported by the BBC, the UK government is introducing a bill to prevent words like “games”, “medals”, “gold”, “2012” or “summer” being combined in adverts.

So in theory, depending on the final version of the legislation, adverts that say “Summer 2012 Sale” or anyone inviting people to “Come to London in 2012” could be breaking the law!

When it comes to stupid laws, the UK is catching up to the USA far too quickly.
