Banning food adverts is nanny statism to the extreme
IEA Brexit Unit releases new briefing on the divorce bill
Response to reports of a Brexit divorce bill settlement
IEA reacts to Labour Party's call for a ban on food adverts
“Under this puritanical proposal, the majority of food adverts would be banned at Christmas time. Cheese, nuts and chocolates would be treated as X-rated items. Christmas puddings could not be shown before the watershed. This is the world the food fanatics want us to live in. Bah humbug, indeed.”
