400 sigs now. Well done everyone :D Please ask family and friends to sign, hopefully we can keep it going and get loads. Great news about the website, but the TV ad needs to be changed.

There is a mum right now consoling her son, who is distraught after seeing the ad tonight.

Yes I know this boy, he is only 4. I have asked his mother if we can use this story if needed and she confirmed. The boy's grandmother died just before Christmas, she was diabetic (no idea whether 1 or 2) and he thought that was because of her diabetes and now this advert has confirmed it for his 4 year old mind, he was inconsolable. His poor mum is distraught.

Thanks for explaining Adrienne, I didn't want to put in too much detail without checking it was ok first. Hope they are a bit better today, although I doubt it as he just wouldn't believe it wasn't diabetes that caused it anyway. I can see why the ad has confirmed his thoughts even more.

I was thinking it's only safe to watch BBC, but even that's not the case with plans to show it it schools. :mad:

Just to keep you informed we have over 500 signatures so far and its rising.

We have also heard a whisper that the DoH may be making a desision on something so will keep you posted.

Again thanks.
