Tube adverts defaced because they “sh*t in your head”

A group which has “replaced” and “defaced” adverts on the tube is calling for Sadiq Khan to ban outdoor advertising – claiming it “shits in your head”.

It is believed around 400 ads have been changed by the Special Patrol Group, which TfL describes as “vandalism”.

 

The bunch of anti-ad campaigners have also launched a petition. It calls “on Mayor of London Sadiq Khan to follow his fellow Mayors in Sao Paulo and Grenoble and take action to ban outdoor advertising – or, at very least, place restrictions on it (in the same way that there are restrictions on other things that have harmful effects).”

“We welcome his intervention on sexist advertising, but we’re asking him to go further; Sadiq has pledged to take action against air-pollution in the Capital: will he take action to protect Londoners from harmful visual-pollution too?” the petition adds.
