    Body-shaming ads will be BANNED from London's transport network, new mayor Sadiq Khan decrees
    • Tougher policy on displaying marketing images that 'demean' women
    • Will apply on Tube, trains and buses across the capital
    • Khan, who has two teenage daughters, said it should send message to firms
    Ads that 'shame' Londoners over their bodies are to be banned from the Tube and bus network, Sadiq Khan has announced. The newly-installed mayor said there will be a block on adverts that 'demean' women.

    Controversial adverts like Protein World’s “Are you beach body ready?” weight loss advertisement, which provoked a backlash when it appeared last year, are now forbidden.

    In a statement, Khan said: “As the father of two teenage girls, I am extremely concerned about this kind of advertising which can demean people, particularly women, and make them ashamed of their bodies. It is high time it came to an end.

    If true this is complete sadness. First the guns taken then the freedom. Same thing repeats. It's amazing how brazen a government can become.

    Nationalism is devotion to one's nation in the form of patriotism, i.e. love of country, doing what's best for your country.
    Nationalism is now viewed as being racist and close-minded. curious isn't it?
