Daily Mail Banned

Recommended Posts

I bought a few bits at Sainsburys today and used the do - it - yourself checkout. When I scanned my copy of the "Daily Mail" the till robot annouced "approval needed".

The assistant arrived to sort it out and when I queried it the girl said they were not allowed to sell the "Daily Mail" to under 18's, but she didn't know why.

Yet another example of our stupid nanny state - perhaps under 18's should be banned from all shops and public places, and made to wear burkas when travelling to school - that should solve a lot of politically correct problems.

Have you told the Daily Mail - I can see the headline now.

and the answer as to why is.....

- the free dvds - never known them to give away an 18 rated one but they might well have done - £5000 fine to individual, not the shop if they sold (effectively) one to a minor..

No private enterprise does this "Not more than one child in the shop please"

A guess, but perhaps it's because the Daily Mail contains scratch cards and it is illegal to sell these to anyone under the age of 16?

You had me going there for a minute.

I thought that someone had finally decided to ban nonsense written by a$$holes. <_<

That must be like buying porn in an empty shop just to have a group of women walk in and catch you. Didn't you feel dirty being caught buying a daily wail?

I don't know what is worse, that you waited for an assistant instead of dumping the rag and legging it or that you admitted reading the wail here :lol:

I'm just an individualist, I like to cause a stir. :o

The manager at my local Co-op said that it would be indeed all about free dvd's - there was a 15 rated dvd issued with yesterday's Times as well as Mail (although mine was missing!) - the systems apparently pick it up when this happens.

He also told me that Jif squeezy lemons are also barred to under 18's - apparently because of a glitch in the system that no one knows how to fix.

With stories like this, the Daily Mail is more poisonous to young impressionable minds than any page 3 girl with her baps out. No wonder more teenage girls are developing anorexia when the likes of the Mail print this sort of cruel garbage.

They arent wrong though.

Not sure how many teenage girls read the mail :lol: but I doubt that piece is going to make any anorexic.

Next time I see a group of teenage girls reading the daily mail in the shopping center though I will watch to see if this has put them off eating or buying rubber dresses :lol:

You could always cut out the middle-man and get your scarstories direct from the Daily Heil Headline Generator:

Are immigrants giving house prices cancer?

Aren't they selling the paper rather than the film?

No unaccompanied under-16s in ALDI:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1316811/Father-slams-Aldi-supermarket--refusing-sell-son-10-loaf-bread.html

This is driving an unnecessary wedge between the generations.

It's a sensible rule and keeps prices down for all of us.

A swarm of kids in a store will easily hold a looting party and there is *nothing* that the police, the school or anyone else will do about it.

Hence Aldi now bans kids.

Today's Heil on Sunday led with the front page headline: HYPOCRISY

I assume it's an apology for editorial policies over several decades.

I'm glad they've finally seen the error of their ways, and our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.

By that logic you wouldn't need an alcohol licence, but could just give-away free booze with every purchase of, say, a raffle ticket. As many social clubs have tried, until John Law saw differently and intervened.
