Do we need Britain to be more of a Nanny State?

Britain's "nanny state" does not go far enough and the Government should pass more safety legislation, according to public health expert, Dr Alan Maryon Davis.

    A basic rule about reading newspapers is that you always question why a person should be introduced as an 'expert'. Someone puts forward an opposing view and you wonder how they are going to be introduced.

    The problem about introducing new laws, even if they might be seen to be necessary, is then more time and money has then to be spent on their enforcement if they are going to make any sense.

    If you want to lesion to such fools then there is no hope for you they may say its about safety What its about is control those sort of people would be happy to send you home to your family in a body bag and send your family a bill for the cost of doing so a civil servants once said as much respect us do as we tell you or die that is their moto Nazi ways of thinking did not come to an end in Germany in 1945 they are still very much alive in the UK government and civil service they would be happy to gas us if they could get away with it Did you know that maggots and maggot control are the internal term they use when talking about the British public ?

    It is ridiculous. As children, we played in the street or in the park. We fell and grazed our knees, got dirty and took all sorts of risks yet we are still here. I feel sorry for today's children if this stupid health and safety nonsense remains. They will be a bunch of nervous wrecks when they get older. Add to that the PC brigade and the future looks very bleak indeed.
