Nanny State Is Uncool!!
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2007-02-14 06:16
I just saw Mark Peck, ex-MP and spokesman for the Smokefree Coalition, say on the Sainsbury programme (for non-Kiwi SOLOists, that's the current affairs programme that follows our leading TV news bulletin) the reason he doesn’t expect his push for a tobacco tax hike to be successful is the “Nanny State” argument, which he said is “huge” and was the cause of Finance Minister Michael Cullen calling the proposal “political suicide.” Well, take a bow, Libertariaz. Whence else did this argument emanate?! This confirms something said to me personally by Green MP Sue Kedgley—that the "libertarian argument" had a reach, including to MPs, way beyond what the actual number of Libz voters in NZ would suggest.
What say ye, Hsiekovians who obediently damn political activism?!
