TV viewers may be zapped

Anti-TV protesters are set to disrupt viewing for thousands in pubs throughout the UK in what has been dubbed TV-Turnoff Week. Concerned by the rise of public TVs, in bars, pubs and cafes, the members of White Dot are to use a £14 [$7] device to turn off the all pervasive boxes. One activist said, “In the Goose PH the customers went mad…they went crackers” and “in John Lewis’s TV department ten TVs went off at once. The salesman just looked at them gobsmacked”. Nice idea, but one might get one’s own gob smacked!
