War Of The Worlds get political

British film censors are coming under fire from a conservative member of Parliment for giving War Of The Worlds a 12a certification. This means that any age can see the movie, just that 12 years and under need to be accompanied by an adult. As I have already commented in my review, I certainly would not consider bringing my 7 year old daughter anywhere near this very disturbing (but quite brilliant) film. Conservative MP Mike Penning is asking the culture secretary to reveal the names of the censors involved in the decision. Loathe though I am to lend my support to a conservative politician, I have to admit I think this was a bad decision.
