They've shown that they are useless in setting standards, and so when someone else, who looks like they'll do a better job, comes along and uses a similar system they get their knickers in a twist. It's ridiculous.

I can only assume it's confusing for parents to walk into a game story and see some games with BBFC 15/18 markers on and some with 12/16 "white square" PEGI ones on. It's about time a universal standard (to all games that is) is set and in such a case, the BBFC needs to step aside.

The problem arose in Rockstar being like a dog with a bone and appealing again and again until it was overturned in court. The BBFC were understandly not happy at this, and it is cases such as this that undermine them. Give them the freedom to do their jobs and they perfrom more than adequately. And its PEGI that are the confusers, BBFC logos are recognised by a large degree of people in the UK. Whether parents choose to follow them is a seperate issue, and one of good/poor parenting respectively.
