'There's Probably No Allah'
The row over the 'There's Probably No God' adverts took a new twist today. The Telegraph reports today that a devoutly Christian bus driver in Southampton has refused to drive his bus because it has the advert pasted to the side. The bus company have given him another bus to drive.
Personally, I have no issue with the ASA passing this advert. But the thought does occur to me. If the advert had said 'There's Probably No Allah: Now, Stop Worrying & Enjoy Your Life', would it have got through the ASA's censors? I think we all know the answer. And if it had, somehow, got through the ASA, would the bus company have touched it with the proverbial bargepole? Of course not.
