Anti-terror Ad Banned

I was trying to be funny with my post about custom anti-terror billboards, but it turns out it was not far from reality. The BBC reports of an Anti-terrorist hotline ad banned for being ‘offensive’

In the advert, a man says: “The man at the end of the street doesn’t talk to his neighbours much, because he likes to keep himself to himself.

“He pays with cash because he doesn’t have a bank card, and he keeps his curtains closed because his house is on a bus route.”

It then says: “If you suspect it, report it.”

Those criteria hardly seem worthy of reporting. Quiet, cash and curtains? I always thought terrorists preferred blinds.
