As Henry Rollins famously said, "I've been to England fifteen times and never liked it once!" We have to say we've had some great times in Blighty, but the way the nation's going, we wonder if there's any point to visiting again. Case in point? More joy in the nanny state. Sixty percent of Londoners support a ban on smoking in private vehicles. Sixty percent of Londoners are complete and utter dimwits. We don't smoke in vehicles if other occupants object. We don't smoke in vehicles containing children. It's common courtesy. But to ban it completely just adds another layer to the removal of personal freedoms in the name of safety that Britain seems to have wholeheartedly embraced.
