Looking back at the old poster we did for The Free Radical magazine back in 2007, you can only thank goodness they’ve done so much since then to remove all the nannying.
And they haven’t done any new nannying, have they. None at all. Well, apart from siccing their spies onto us, and talking up fatty food bans, and transforming cities with no-drinking zones, and trying to make legal highs illegal, and trying to make alcohol more difficult to buy and sell, and raising taxes on smokers and drinkers, and adding new taxes on emissions, and talking about taxing plastic bags, and banning D.I.Y building, and outlawing freedom camping, and prohibiting texting while driving …
Apart from that, they’ve kept their word, haven’t they. They’ve told Nanny to go to hell, haven’t they. They’ve beaten Nanny back, haven’t they.
