Debate about drowning rats in James Cameron's The Abyss enters its 28th year


Link Here 17th December 2017
Abyss DVD The Abyss is 1989 US adventure film by James Cameron.
With Ed Harris, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Michael Biehn. BBFC link IMDb

Back in 1989 the BBFC ordered cuts to Abyss to the scene where a rat is dipped in supposedly breathable liquid. The BBFC claim cruelty to animals in the making of the scene but the director claims that several different rats were used to ensure that none suffered. The BBFC reported that it sought advice from the NSPCC who claimed that it contravened the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937.

The issue resurfaced in October of this year when it was noted that the film was playing uncut on Netflix apparently with a BBFC 15 rating.

The BBFC have now responded that they believe the cut is still required, but that amount of material cut could now be reduced.

Virginia lawmaker proposes an end to the state's disgraceful criminalisation of swearing in public


Link Here 17th December 2017
Virginia State SealIn the US state of Virginia, profanity is illegal in public. Many places have anti-profanity signs and the like. Saying 'fuck' in Virginia is a misdemeanor! Although it is a very old law, many people are still charged and can be charged a $250 dollar fine at the minimum .

A state lawmaker from Richmond Virginia is currently attempting to eliminate this censorship law. The conservative Michael Webert is a farmer that believes in the right to free speech and understands that things happen that can trigger people to let out a dirty word. He said:

When I cursed, my mother told me not to and handed me a bar of soap. You shouldn't be hit with a Class 4 misdemeanor.

Drinks censor bans can design for Cwtch Welsh Red Ale


Link Here 17th December 2017  full story: UK Drinks Censor...Portman Group play PC censor for drinks

cwtch red aleA complaint about the packaging of Cwtch Welsh Red Ale (330ml can) has been upheld by the Independent Complaints Panel for having a particular appeal to under-18s and indirectly encouraging immoderate consumption.

The complainant, a member of the public, believed that the product wasn't obviously alcoholic, due to the design, and also had a particular appeal to children.

When considering the image of the bear on the front of the can, and its positioning alongside the wording Tiny Rebel, the Panel agreed that the packaging indirectly encouraged immoderate consumption. The Panel also considered the prominence of the bear above the wording Tiny Rebel, in combination with the graffiti and swirling primary colours, caused the product to have a particular appeal to under-18s.

While considering the ruling, the Panel recognised Tiny Rebel's social responsibility work in their local community and highlighted that they had not deliberately sought to create product packaging which had an appeal to under-18s.

The Portman Group also acknowledged the positive way in which the producer has engaged with the Advisory Service throughout the complaint process and welcomed its early commitment to respect the Panel's ruling.
