PEGI ratings performed by ‘a couple of blokes’, says BBFC

Monday, 7th July 2008 08:43 GMT By Mike

Destructoid‘s reporting that BBFC’s David Cooke has said that PEGI ratings are given by “a couple of blokes.”

The quote comes from an interview with The Times newspaper, where Cooke says, “The trouble is that it is not clear who PEGI is. Administration is handled by the Dutch film regulator, who subcontracts to a couple of blokes [the Video Standards Council] in Borehamwood.”

This latest statement in the ratings board wars comes just a week after Cooke asked PEGI to stop slagging off the BBFC.

    Yes, it’s a couple of blokes in Borehamwood. But so what? In my experience of getting stuff rated, they did a pretty good job.

    Seemed to work, yep. This whole BBFC vs PEGI thing’s rather unsavoury, if you ask me. They’re behaving like infants.
