Daily Fail cocks up again!

Another Stupid Scare Story
This time Titled “Is your lipstick giving you cancer”
(And a quick note to Daily Mail Journalists I have a copy of this cached for when you delete it and try to pretend it didn’t happen)

All Scary stuff about how nasty Butyl Benzyl Phthalate is and how new research has proven that its really nasty and should be banned.
Well the industry agrees with you, its not good and it should be banned

Oh I forgot it already has been. A year ago (August 2006 to be precise) thanks to the EU, so no Daily Mail reader will be able to get their hands on it anyway
Thanks to the CTPA for being on the ball

And a comment to the author of the piece who is called David Derbyshire
Didn’t they teach you to at least check your facts before embarrassing yourself in print, or do you subscribe to the opinion that you don’t let the facts stand in the way of a good horror story.
Sir, You’re officially named “Gripper of the Week” , and you only get that accolade as I don’t think you’re intelligent enough to be a Wanker!

  2. Too kind Sir!
    Funny thing was I cut and pasted the article over to the CTPA, and the response was to paraphrase “Yep, thanks, seen it, same old same old *Yawn*, we’re doing (yet another) response now”
    Worrying thing these days is that the first half hour of the day is checking for scare stories on tabloid webshites. Even more worrying is when the boss approves of the activity!
