There was time ( waaaaay back in the day, early days of the ASA ) when we would run a new campaign ( in rough ) by the ASA ..and if they said " you are pulling our leg , nah leave it"..it would not go live..without their "recommendations" being incorporated..
Being shamed in the "trade" and having people "tut tuting" you in the bars around Tottenham Court road and Goodge street was "not on"..
Then came Maggie and Murdoch and the Saatchi's..and ethics went swiftly down the drains at Centre Point..and the ladies of SOHO had the high moral ground over most of the heads of the UK ad business..
