Ever since I saw the article on the Evening Standard about TfL banning an advert for a theatre production I've been raging and fuming.
Here's the tea...TfL has banned an advert from appearing on its ad spaces along the network - on its platforms, along the escalators, in the tubes, on the bus stops. The advert features scantily clad young women, wearing inappropriate clothing for any casual daytime setting, produced by fast fashion businesses exploiting underpaid, underage and overworked workers in unsafe working environments, whilst polluting the planet, one crop top at a time.

Hah! PSYCH! Nope, that's fine by London mayor, Sadiq Khan. What isn't however, is a theatre production's, Tony & Tina's Wedding, advert depicting a married couple on top of a wedding cake.
This ban is so dumbfounding that it was brought up in discussion at Mayor's Question Time at City Hall.
