And finally… sober up

A gin appreciation society has been reprimanded for its adverts including one which read: “Shut up liver, you’re fine! Gin?”

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) upheld 10 complaints about Facebook ads from the Scottish Gin Society.

Another post stated: “I only drink gin on two occasions: When I’m thirsty and when I’m not thirsty”.

SGS said the posts were memes and hence not within the remit of the ASA.

It added that it was “the most po-faced, fun-free, nanny-state judgement imaginable”.

It has since removed the posts.
