Chris Snowdon appears on BBC Newsnight
In the segment Chris argues that tolerance is out and coercive paternalism is back in, calling itself “public health”. Never in history have we had less reason to panic about our health. Yet hardly a day goes by where we aren’t told about imaginary epidemics and timebombs. But the endless tide of nanny-state regulation doesn’t seem to be making us any healthier. The current public health crusade is really just the latest in a long line of attempts by middle-class killjoys to impose their tastes on the masses.
