Iain Dale wants to ban smoking outright and objects to an approach of sensible step changes, designed to reduce "recruitment" to the habit.
What exactly is Iain's objection? He doesn't actually tell us. But insofar as there is any logic ... we need to test it. So here is a small redraft on the second half of his post, inspired by Iain's friend Nads:
The real agenda of the people behind these authoritarian proposals is to ban abortion outright. At least that would be an intellectually honest position. As it is, the constant chipping away of the rights of women is typical of the authoritarian drift among so-called (ex-)health professionals.
Either ban it outright or leave people to make their own decisions.
UPDATE: Sunday, 15:22: Of course Iain Dale isn't calling for a ban anymore than the government is. When he apologises to the government for his LIES, LOL will apologise for the wind up.
