We are being told more & more what we can & can't do, we are being stopped from making our own decisions. Are government slowly making this a dictatorship country
Kevin, it’s because 90% of the time - given the chance - most people can’t make the right choice for themselves. That’s why we have alcoholics, drug abusers, obesity problems, smoking related illnesses, drink driving related accidents, murder as result of drink/drug abuse, etc - plaguing the NHS and police forces. If people wouldn’t behave like such animalistic idiots, perhaps we could be trusted to make the right decisions. Instead, we lost that right years ago. And rightly so. The only people who will complain are often the ones these regulations affect. And put it this way, they don’t affect me. At all. So I’m all for it.
