... what with being French and all, but this is a huge load of arse!!!!! Absolutely ridiculous.
In any case, Gordon, your customer is a looney, and it's got nothing to do with where he's from.
What part is ridiculous?
Do you mean the ASA ruling - no, that's happened (see link).
Do you mean that the UK people aren't all about rights, not about responsibilities - we might have to agree to disagree. But you don't live in the UK and I do. We get this all the time.
I DO live in the UK.
Generalizing this behavior as a typical British one is what I do not agree with.
Gordon's client is obviously an idiot, and I've seen them all over the world.
I judge countries by the number of lawyers in the population, on the simple basis that more lawyers=more litigation.
The US is still ahead of everyone else, with one lawyer for every 320 people. The UK has one lawyer per 694 people. France has 2461 people per lawyer and Japan has 8195 people per lawyer.
South Park wouldn't have had Tom Cruise say "'I'll sue you in England" if the UK wasn't the birth-place of 'libel tourism'.
Finally, I see your point and raise you Grumbletext. Says it all, really.
