What is this?
Has anyone got more information on this? Because I can't find any great first hand sources
The Daily Mail (Bah) has already run with it, so has the Sun
But apparently there's a report recommending banning same-sex kissing before the watershed. And Cameron backs it
For those who don't know - the watershed is a cut off point for "decency" on UK television. Before 9:00pm there's a limit on how much sex, nudity, violence and swearing you can show for the sake of the kiddies. After 9:00pm the rules are laxer.
Kissing is not restricted to after the watershed. Because it's kissing for crying out loud.
This would establish same-sex kissing as obscene - unfit for the sight of minors.
It looks like a measure to tighten up rules on sexually explicit material - but why are same-sex kisses mentioned? Since when is a kiss sexually explicit?
It's bad enough that Heinz withdrew this add due to bigoted pressure - but to make it a legal ban?
