"Werther's image has become dusty and doesn't reflect people's lives today, so it's farewell to grandfather." - Anne Hollamby, the marketing director at Bendicks, the owner of the Werther's Original brand, explains why that old man was given his marching orders for the latest toffee campaign

"By sanctioning the derogatory use of the word gay, the BBC has endorsed not only the negative use of the word but has promoted the acceptance of a bigoted and harmful definition of gay." - The Gaydar Radio commercial director, David Muniz, in a letter to Ofcom after Radio One's Chris Moyles apparently referred to a ringtone as "gay"

"We are going through a big process of change. It means a level of disruption, but what we have done with Creative Future is set out a road map for what the BBC is here to do." - Mark Thompson, the BBC director-general, after unveiling the Corporation's annual report and a programme involving 6,000 job cuts and £3.3 billion in savings.
