Sorry, it's a UK newspaper link, maybe it's blocked from there.

Wow, shades of the "Citizens United" decision here that gave corporations the right as "citizens" to contribute directly to political campaigns.

Kind of ironic to obscure an advertising image for the sake of its privacy, when it only exists to bring attention to itself.
