Make it Family Friendly, Telecom

Media Release 18 August 2011
Family First is welcoming Telecom’s decision to cancel its rugby world cup campaign.

“The campaign was always destined to fail because it was corny and not family-friendly,” says Bob McCoskrie, National Director of Family First NZ.

“The All Blacks fan club is made up of children and families, and any campaign needs to involve all ages and be family friendly.”

“The best thing to do with this campaign is to give it to the Family Planning Association and ask them to use it in schools with the sex ed programmes.”

Family First is encouraging Telecom to find a family friendly campaign that all of the kiwi family can participate in.|

    “The best thing to do with this campaign is to give it to the Family Planning Association and ask them to use it in schools with the sex ed programmes.”

    Priceless!

    Even a tongue-in-cheek call for six weeks of abstinence puts the lie to claims that it’s impossible to abstain. That’s just an excuse made by those who don’t WANT to, or HAVEN’T abstained.

    Abstinence is the art of avoiding what one desperately desires, and managing to do so with the least noticed hypocrisy.

    Like the dinosaur, it is destined to become a museum piece.

    As Oscar Wilde said: “I can resist everything except temptation.”
