mallory_x: Negative Media Stereotypes of Scouting

I don't know how many members of this community are in the UK, but those who are may be interested in the latest Phones4u mobile phone ad campaign. There are some more details and links in my journal.

( A Scout is to be ridiculed...? )

If you're on Facebook, there's a group called "Scouts against Phones 4 U" that you may be interested in joining. It includes ways to make a formal complaint about the campaign.

EDIT: The ad has now been pulled after complaints from the Scout Association. Thanks aumhur for letting me know!

Thanks for letting me know! I'll update the post with the link.

Just goes to show you don't mess with Scouts!
