Where does this 'watchdog' get the power to ban advertisements?  If not from the government, than from whom?

From the fellow members of the advertising industry!

As self-regulation goes, it's more effective than many such bodies. It's not quite what you see in professions like medicine, law or accounting, but it's got a lot more teeth than the discredited Press Complaints Commission (if it had any credit) and its rulings on a member's behaviour/practice can prevent an advertiser from advertising, as here. A bit more effective than anything in the photography "profession"....
