England Sucks: Christian radio ad banned by order of a Cabinet minister

The case was brought after the radio advertising regulator said the 30-second advert should not be broadcast because it was ‘directed to a political end’.

The advert said that, according to surveys, 60 per cent of Christians think believers are being increasingly marginalised at work. It asked listeners to report their own experiences to its website because ‘we are concerned to get the most accurate data to inform the public debate’. The advertisement said: ‘We will then use this data to help make a fairer society.’
