Latest post of the previous page:

It seems that Prince William has struck a lucrative business deal in China, something to do with a traditional remedy now being available in UK over the counter, can't imagine what it is, but it was in the i, so must be true.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Thanks, Ninny. I've not checked, but I doubt it has MHRA approval - not yet anyway.

Let's hope the new governmental bias towards things phantastical religious does not mean a shift towards this
sort of stupidity here.

But I'll not be holding my breath in hope...

Actually, the hand wavy ones are my favourites, specifically bioenergetic healing and pranic healing.

The first prosecution arising from the ASA referring a persistent misleading advertiser to Trading Standards, prosecuted and found guilty under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008. Expect more...

ASA welcomes successful prosecution of alternative therapy provider following misleading advertising

The fines are paltry, but they now have a criminal record.

Interesting. Thank you for that Alan, I'd been wondering when (and perhaps if) we were going to see a prosecution or two.

One of the problems is the length of time it takes TS to gather their evidence, put together a case and take it to court - none of these are quick! Hopefully we will see more in future. But at least there are quite a few websites of TS referrals that have been taken down.
