This story really amazed me!!With all the news regarding immigration,especially in the UK and in this politically correct country,how can Paddy power think that they can get away with this type of ad.
I have put a link in but if you can't be bothered to read it they basically had an ad showing a lorry covered with pictures of foreign born UK sportsman with the slogan...."Immigrants jump in the back but only if you're good at sport"....it is not even funny. Confused

I don't believe there's any malice intended with the ad. Probably some people take it literally.

I don't think it's very funny either; it's a bit pedantic IMO.

Hmmmmm! This is an interesting mix of issues, and regardless of your views on the ad, that despite being banned has probably achieved its aim, as more people are probably now aware of the ad than they would have been had it nor been banned.

There was no malice and Paddy are always doing this close to the bone type of "joke" but there is really important debates going on about immigration,especially regarding Syrians and the left wing will jump on anyone even trying to joke about these issues.At one point in the UK as soon as you started to question immigration you were classed as a racist.

It is not funny for sure.
And regarding this ad, i know first hand here, the difference when it comes to acquiring the
nationality when you are good at sports. You can be a greek in one day if they thing
you are able to join a national team. Pathetic.
