That’s become a right festival of failed civil servants that one too. It didn’t happen this year as the usual subsidy envelope failed to hit the mat I believe.

These guys have sponsored ads all over facebook. I bet they don't care about any IOM trademarks. Mind you, it could be a nice jolly to Miami for a government bod.

It will be interesting to see how Facebook respond to the takedown request - though I can't help noticing that DfE have waited till after TT is over to action it.  Presumably it means they can claim victory when the US company stops advertising when it was going to anyway.

The Dfe will not find the Miami lot as easy to bully as Looneys were, if I were Looneys I would give them to various charities to raffle then they would at least get some publicity out of it.

As you say - fine taking action now the TT is over and they’d probably stop selling TT t-shirts online anyway as anyone wanting one will have already bought it.

We could do with sending a 10 strong delegation out to Miami for a couple of months to make sure none of their shops are ripping us off. On a point of principle

Amazing that when it suits them to justify ridiculous expenditure the first thing they cite is publicity ...... this will certainly get publicity.....  bad publicity, how do you value that on the balance sheet ? I hope Miami tell them to eff off !!!!

I could IoMG being made to look very, very arrogant and stupid over this.

Or coming out of it a lot worse off financially by the time the briefs have had their considerable bit.

Or both.
