Ads on BBC news page

There are now ads on news.bbc.co.uk if you are outside the UK. I hadn't noticed them as trusty adblock was filtering them out in Firefox. There is an ad for Hublot watches and a link to an explanation of what's going on (at the right hand side). Both are evil flash, which at least makes them easy to block.


  1. For some reason there are no ads on the BBC news website for me. Maybe they owe me, given how much I link to them. Or maybe Safari does not like Flash.

  2. Or maybe they think Ireland is part of the UK.
