My quote of the day

"The thing with the anti brigade, whether it is anti-smoking, anti-drinking, anti-obesity or any other activity the puritans take a dislike to is that if you allow them a millimetre, they’ll steal a parsec and come back to cut out your heart."

Thanks for the link ;)

It has to be said and repeated ad nauseum until people finally get it.

It certainly does. That is why they must always be resisted, because even if their current plan, whatever it is, seems reasonable, they will take any compromise, bank it and then come back for more. Hence the smoking ban in pubs and places of work was just a milestone on their road to banning it in cars and homes. They didn't miss a beat.
