Well, This Is Going To Make 'Lark Rise To Candleford' Watchable, At Last!

The Government will this week order television chiefs to include more references to condoms and sexually transmitted diseases in their story lines.

Officials will reveal that they have analysed popular TV shows and concluded that not enough sex scenes feature the characters discussing contraception.
Well, those of a delicate nature will just have to watch more US imports. Like, say, 'True Blood' or 'Californication' instead!
A report, called Mis-selling Sex, to be launched by the Department of Health, will call on television writers to include more dialogue about condoms and plot lines featuring the consequences of unsafe sex such as unwanted pregnancies and disease.

It will also call for more slang words to be used in order to connect with teenagers.
Great. Now, we don't just need subtitles, we'll need translations...

How about a different approach - men and women displaying chastity before marriage and continence within marriage. Oh, and how about sobriety in speech and behaviour and an encouragement of things like hard work and duty. After all, the Government is now in the business of recommending moral courses of action and why shouldn't they be courses that actually work for a stable society?

Could be confusing on Dad's Army when Cpl Jones announces "They don't like it up 'em"
