Mums get political: no violent games in UK, please

Jennie Lees

The fight against violent video games has spread across the pond, with a new political movement organised by womens' tabloid Take a Break specifically targetting the "yob culture" that has sprung up in the UK. This apparently includes gangsta rap, street gangs and violent video games.

The "Mums' Army" campaign has allegedly amassed 10,000 responses, although the right-wing nature of its official website reads more like a spoof than a genuine attempt at politics. However, editor John Dale insists the move is a genuine one. The impact is likely to be fairly low, even if the movement does gain momentum--however, our vote's going to Take a Break's "Women's Orgasm Liberation" campaign instead.
