Oh do fuck off laddie

David Cameron is to back a plan to stop retailers selling inappropriate clothes for pre-teens and shield children from sexualised imagery across all media, including selling \”lads magazines\” in brown covers and making the watchdog Ofcom more answerable to the views of parents.

Retailers would be required to sign up to a new code preventing the sale of items for pre-teens with suggestive slogans, which the prime minister has repeatedly criticised.

T-shirts for 5 year olds that read \”Sexy Tart\” might not be the most tasteful of fashion statements.

But government determining what clothes may and may not be sold is an abomination.

Bugger off laddie.

  1. All this from an ‘Establishment’ full of Satanists and Child Rapists and Murderers……

  2. Well, let’s say it again. The liberal 20th century is over. We’re in Victorian Era II and, as with Victorian Era I, a bunch of hatchet faced harridans are running the show, while their browbeaten menfolk dutifully do their bidding in the legislature.

    That’s who really runs the country, you know. It’s not Bilderberg, the EU, twelve foot alien lizards, the Masons, the Jews, or any of those conspiracy theory stalwards. It’s Mumsnet Woman. That’s who it is, I tell you.

  3. Heh. I hadn’t read the article before ranting but now I have, nice to see my fingering of Mumsnet was right on the money.

    Also, nice comment there from “Clamdip”

    “This is a good move along with providing healthy school lunches. Some fascist ideas are positive. Now they need to go after the big players, the media.”

  4. How would they determine which clothes are “inappropriate”?

    Get Gary Glitter to say which outfits turn him on?

  5. Ian B… Your comment reminds me of a statement made by “Uncle Mort” (a wondrously misanthropic character played by Robin Bailey) in Peter Tinniswood’s “I never knew you cared”… “… I’ve come to the conclusion that the world is, in fact, run by a cabal of lady golfers.”. :-)

  6. “That’s who really runs the country, you know. It’s not Bilderberg, the EU, twelve foot alien lizards, the Masons, the Jews, or any of those conspiracy theory stalwards. It’s Mumsnet Woman. That’s who it is, I tell you.”

    We can but pray for a zombie apocalypse…

  7. Oh dear me. -If you don’t want to protect young children then you must be ………………. etc.
    Possibly you should undertake some more roundabout advocacy.

  8. Presumably nurses play outfits for 5 year-olds will fall foul of the new morality inspectorate on the grounds that Ann Summers sell grown up versions for grown ups to play in? Alternatively, will steps be taken to desexualise adulthood rather than risk sexualising childhood?

    Is rule by mumsnet a mumsnocracy? Is this anything other than a way to demonstrate how pure and fantastic mumsnet mums are and how crude and inadequate nonmumsnet types are?

    Are these all just rhetorical questions?
