Mills & Boon Fights The Kissing Ban!

Well here's a protest we can get behind! The ban imposed by Virgin trains made the news nationwide this week and Mills & Boon have launched a protest. Rightly so too! The world is a bleak enough place without banning the right to show affection!!! It's the most ridiculous ban I've ever heard of frankly...

Even the Guardian newspaper has picked up on the protest and you can read what they had to say HERE. Here's the low down from Mills & Boon:

'It's our right to kiss where we like'

Mills & Boon have come out in protest against Virgin's ban on public displays of affection in UK train stations.

“Romantic embraces and passionate kisses are a vital part of life and should never be discouraged.

We don't believe that you should restrict passion to certain times or areas. Lovers should be free to express their feelings whenever the mood takes them,” says Mills & Boon Publishing Director Sarah Ritherdon.

If you're as annoyed by the breach of our fundamental right to kiss in public, please download the posters, join the twitter activists and upload photos of you kissing at stations on Facebook and on our Flickr group.

Join our fight and kiss goodbye to no kissing.
