EU has not lost its thirst for nanny state regulation

Christopher Snowdon writes for Spiked

In an article for Spiked, Head of Lifestyle Economics Christopher Snowdon, reacted to an EU Commission report which plans to implement a raft of nanny state policies to battle cancer within the bloc.

Amongst a long list of new regulations, the EU Commission proposes a ban on vaping outdoors, a policy which Snowdon said  has “no scientific justification and is outside the EU’s competence”.

Snowdon slams the Commission’s report as a “shopping list of ill-considered and illiberal policies” which  have been rejected by a majority of member states.
