Here is an outrageous quote from the Daily Telegraph (via ConservativeHome):

Ban supersized food says Wollaston

“Supersized” food and drinks should be banned by law in a bid to combat Britain’s obesity epidemic, the new head of the Commons health select committee has said. Dr Sarah Wollaston, a Conservative MP and former GP, said the state had a “duty to intervene” to protect current and future generations from unhealthy habits threatening to shorten their lives.” – Daily Telegraph

This nanny stateism, Bloombergesque, Agenda 21 thinking ought to be a bar to public office!  I expect this from Labour:  They already want to tell people what to eat and drink.  Now the Tories want to get into the act.  It’s outrageous.

This MP is in denial and she doesn’t even have to go to Egypt!  She actually thinks this is not a nanny state issue:

“I don’t believe it has to feel like the nanny state,” she said. “I think we can put in place proportionate tough measures, just as we’ve seen with seatbelt legislation and with stopping people smoking indoors. They can be controversial at first but who now would want to go back to having people smoking in restaurants? In the same way, would we really miss being able to buy monster sizes of carbonated drinks?”

There’s only one solution for this:  a strong UKIP candidate in Dr. Wollaston’s riding.  If I were British, I’d ask Farage to let me handle it.  Maybe there’d be a UKIP upset…

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
