Well, that was quick

No time to lose for the nanny state...



Those of you who read my little book about plain packaging will not be surprised by this. From page 32...

This ‘slippery-slope’ took hold in Australia before the ink was dry on the plain packaging bill, as Australian Senator Cory Bernadi recalls: “[O]n the very first day [after the plain packaging legislation was passed] they moved onto drinking. People who were advocating plain packaging were saying “We should have this for alcohol. We should have it in fast food”. Where does it end? The nanny state will never end because there is always another cause to advocate for.”

The slippery slope has never been more obvious but it is hardly even mentioned by the vacuous mob who allegedly represent us at Westminster. Those unfortunate enough to live in Scotland are represented by authoritarians who actively welcome it.
