Having banned fags, Nanny is now intent on banning life's other little pleasures.
Don't believe me?
Well, doctors are calling for the nationwide adoption of bylaws banning people from drinking in the streets.
The British Medical Association (BMA) wants to see them used much more widely.
Given the fact that many doctors are prolific boozers, smokers and substance abusers I find their attitude to be somewhat hypocritical.
I would also note that not everyone in the "street" is a drunken bum.
Some, for instance, are pub drinkers merely standing outside the pub.
What about picnics?
Want to bet our "beloved" interfering local councils ban those as well?
I warned you this would happen...thin end of a very large wedge is being inserted (I won't say where).
