The Government is always trying to scare the Diary with its ads. Ever since “Watch out there’s a thief about”, the nation has been warned (although the Diary should have taken more notice of that “We’re on to you” Benefits Agency campaign) of the dangers of everything from crossing the road to injecting heroin.
But the state’s latest effort takes the biscuit – it was only last night that the Diary actually managed to watch it through to the end. The ad, which features blood running through various bits of office equipment, is designed to promote energy-saving.
Although quite how being frightened into turning every single light in the house on and leaving them on all night saves energy is beyond the Diary.
