Professor Julian Le Grand, chairman of Health England, wants the British government to legislate good health into being.
He proposed the introduction of a smoking permit, which smokers would be required to show each time they bought tobacco. It is then their choice to go smoke free and not buy a permit.Of course, it is currently up to smokers and fatties to continue or discontinue their unhealthy habits. There is no one forcing them to opt in or opt out of one sort of lifestyle over another. But Big Nanny doesn't believe people can be trusted to run their own affairs without government interference and subsequent governmental profit, thus the idea of smoking permits and exercise hours. Will exercise hour replace lunch hour?
