Sadly not everyone seems to have realised that ZaNuLabour no longer runs this country, and are still trying to apply that party's discredited social engineering policies.
The core of ZaNaLabour's policies was the "won't someone think of the children?" credo, which was placed at the heart of absolutely everything they did.
Our old "friends" from the National Institute for health and Clinical Excellence (Nice) are still firm believers in the policy, and are demanding that pregnant women (when they book a midwife) be given a carbon monoxide test.
To determine if they are smokers.
Now we are all aware that smoking during pregancy can cause issues with the foetus. However, so can many other things that expectant mothers do.
Whilst it is easy to let this one slip by, as a non smoker, it is but the slippery slope.
Once NICE have the test results Nanny will then "encourage" the mothers to stop smoking.
The "encouragement" will be made harsher and harsher as time progresses, until it will become mandatory for expectant mothers to quit smoking.
Having conquered the smoking demon, Nanny (NICE) will move on to the drinkers (and demand blood tests for booze).
Once that is done, NICE will demand that pregnant mothers be monitored for their food intake.
Once all of these issues have been neatly dealt with, Nanny will demand that people be given a certificate of "good health" before they try to conceive.
Variations on this form of state interference in people's breeding habits has been, and is, practised by a number of countries around the world.
Britain is not immune from such policies, as long as quangos such as NICE are allowed to exist.
