Ban this sick filth

What was the original use of this as a headline (if it ever was one)?  My work colleague thinks it was the Daily Mail on "The Last Temptation Of Christ" but Google doesn't confirm this.

Any ideas?
Never tell me the odds.

I did watch a bit of 'The only Way is Essex' last night. It seemed fairly sick, but there were so many glottal stops that I couldn't catch enough of it to be thoroughly outraged. A bit like that tall blonde woman on 'Strictly' with the non-specific Manchester accent, of which I understood little.

I thought it was for The Romans In Britain, but it may just be apocryphal.

One source suggests it was used by the Daily Fail during the Lady Chatterley's Lover obscenity trial in 1960.  Not corroborated so far, though.

The Daily Mail's headline on 1 July 1983 was "BAN VIDEO SADISM NOW".

The results of a Google search for "ban this sick filth daily mail" suggest that the rag used such a headline for an article blaming video games for violent crime (and probably just about everything else that they thought was wrong with the country).
This is not The Greatest Sig Line in the World, no.
This is just a tribute.
