How will we cope?

The government is going to cut 287 marketing and advertising jobs as part of its spending cuts programme, it has been announced.

Staff numbers at the Central Office of Information (COI), which distributes government publicity, information and communications, are to be reduced from 737 to 450.

The COI said the move follows a government freeze on "non-essential advertising", resulting in a significantly reduced volume of work.
Oh no! I wondered where those ads had gone recently. I've really been missing their incredibly tasteful offerings, so I have. It used to be so sweet to watch the kids unnecessarily crap themselves courtesy of the government.

Oh well, at least the commercial channels aren't losing out. Cancer Research UK appear to have taken up the slack without breaking sweat. The child scare quotient has also been righteously restored to boot.

Kinda makes you wonder why the government bothered spending so much money when others were more than happy to do so without recourse to our taxes, doesn't it?

My kids recently made a massive effort to raise money for CRUK through "race for life". I was cool with this nad it cost me both time and money. I wrote to CRUK seeking assurance that the money would go to "beating cancer through research" and that not one penny would go to ASH. I have received no response from CRUK.
