    Silliness.

    By the same token my 3 year service guarantee on my cooker is misleading because it implies that I can still get service after it has expired: It doesn't actually say that I will not get service after the service guarantee has expired and I will have to pay for it.

    Maybe the "advertising watchdog" (Advertising Standards Authority) didn't have anything else to do!
