It seems to me that Britain is fast becoming a nanny state. Do those in power believe that the British people can't make informed decisions for themselves?
It's a bit of a coincidence that I did a post only yesterday about smoking during pregnancy, then stumbled across this article this morning (OK I know it's the Daily Mail, but it's still food for thought).
The headline reads:
"Expectant mothers to be given smoking breath tests: Health watchdog tells midwives to challenge all pregnant women"
You can read the full article here.
We do of course have a lot of restrictions here in Turkey...censorship (ie banning of many websites, including Youtube) being one of the most irritating. Having a government who decides what we should or shouldn't watch or read.
I'd be interested in your thoughts, not only on this article, but on any other aspects of everyday life, where you feel that you are restricted or prevented from making your own choices. Not just in Britain, but anywhere.
