Mad about ads

Have your say

I was interested to read in about a woman being ejected from the Commonwealth Games for displaying her political ideology on a flag (your report, 30 July).

Contrast this with the backdrop to the weightlifting, which is plastered with corporate adverts selling us stuff which quite often we could do without or we end up in debt after being unable to afford to pay for their products.

If sport, politics and the right to free speech in a democratic country do not mix then advertising during the Commonwealth Games shouldn’t either.
