Diary: Will Wright-Phillips pay Babestation penalty?

Any station that has a licence from any EU regulatory authority is entitled to broadcast throughout the EU, and it would be illegal to bar them. Ofcom, the British regulator, is trying to do what it can. Yesterday it announced it had approached Dutch counterparts, who are responsible for allowing Babestation and Smile TV to infest our screens, requesting that they think again.
