Government faces investigation into “Go Home” advertising campaign

The Advertising Standards Authority has launched an investigation into the Government’s controversial advertising campaign targeting illegal immigrants, after receiving a number of complaints, reports the Independent.

The Home Office campaign involved advertising vans driving round certain boroughs of London displaying billboards that advised illegal immigrants to “go home”, or face the prospect of arrest and deportation.

The campaign caused a great deal of concern in some areas, with human rights organisation Liberty claiming that it had racist connotations – mirroring National Front slogans from the 1970s. Liberty also claimed that the campaign was deeply offensive and divisive and in breach of the Equality Act 2010, and was therefore unlawful.
