The nanny state marches on

"The Government is caught between an instinctive paternalistic bossiness (smoking, binge-drinking, lack of exercise, ID cards and over-eating) and a laissez faire liberalism (24-hour drinking, flexible gaming laws, downgrading (then upgrading) cannabis and betting on Sundays). No wonder everyone is confused." —Philip Johnston
