    They are regarded as mechanically propelled vehicles and would therefore require insurance, if they were legalised.

    Put the instructions on the blooming pack or on their website, not pre watershed primetime TV slots.

    Would it not be the young teenage girls who are watching pre-watershed that best need to be educated with the ad? :confused: Would have no problem with condom ads either as it happens if it saves some young people a lot of grief. There was nothing graphic in the tampon ad, I'm sure they could do the same for condoms.

    I'm embarrassed that there's still this kind of a weird taboo about periods in Ireland, the Catholic Church has lost its power but that shame about women's bodies still endures to this day it seems. Why something that impacts on girls as young as 11 or 11 should be put past the watershed seems a bit nonsensical unless we're saying here that adult men can't seem to deal with the fact that women have periods. I'd love to get a profile on the 80 something complainants, something tells me it's the god squad.

    We've never used the term vacation but staycation is now a thing. Fook off.
