Thanks John.

That's a great quote from Bush, that I have forgotten if I ever knew it.

re New Labour New Puritans.

You are right Paul this latest batch of ministers/MP's (and current PM in particular) seems to be intent on forcing their own morals on us all, rather than using science based evidence to underpin policies.
This is seen in the failure to change the law enforcement drug policy and that of prostitution.

It reminds me of when Bush got to power and his press office came out with the line that "we will create our own reality" unfortunately true reality has a tendancy to bite back.As with drugs so with prostitution prohibtition will never work we need to be more intelligent than that to reduce the risks to society but that intelligence is sadly lacking from the front bench at the moment.
