You have been warned.

Mission creep, or the domino effect.


An abridged list of policies that have been proposed in the name of ‘public health’ in recent months includes: minimum pricing for alcohol, plain packaging for tobacco, a 20 per cent tax on fizzy drinks, a fat tax, a sugar tax, a fine for not being a member of a gym, graphic warnings on bottles of alcohol, a tax on some foods, subsidies on other foods, a ban on the sale of hot food to children before 5pm, a ban on anyone born after the year 2000 ever buying tobacco, a ban on multi-bag packs of crisps, a ban on packed lunches, a complete ban on alcohol advertising, a ban on electronic cigarettes, a ban on menthol cigarettes, a ban on large servings of fizzy drinks, a ban on parents taking their kids to school by car, and a ban on advertising any product whatsoever to children.

An excellent article in the online journal, Spiked, written By Christopher Snowden on the slippery slope into more Public Health control of our lives.

  1. "A ban on parents taking their kids to school by car"

    Excellent! - make the little fuckers walk, like what we had to. And we might then be able to get in and out of our driveway at school times...

  2. And that is indeed a very abridged list of the bans some people want imposed.

  3. I'd like to see a ban on photos of politicians unless there was a notice underneath saying something like, "This f*cker can seriously damage your wealth, and your freedom, and your health, and your sanity, and your pension, amongst other things."
