Brothel Advertiser two weeks on: still they are running the ad

Last week, the excuse was “deadline issues”. Prof Roy Greenslade gave them the benefit of the doubt, suggesting it was “cock up” rather than any deep conspiracy.

But two weeks after the Brothel Advertiser‘s major expose (snigger) of a “sinister brothel” being run in West Croydon, the self-same newspaper continues to advertise the house of ill-repute it “exposed” (having advertised the place for the previous year).

Wonder what the excuse might be this time around?

Oddly, though, more than two weeks after the Brothel Advertiser received a letter complaining of the utter hypocrisy of its editorial and advertising stances, the Editor has yet to see fit to publish this in his newspaper.

Good job that we did.
