Plainly Incorrect

You can’t really ban a burkha. How do you enforce that? Punishment for wearing it? Doesn’t that cast you in the role of the person you were seeking to defuse: the man who says you must wear the cloak.

On this basis, I have decided you can’t plaster death images and warning signs all over cigarettes. It’s basically replacing their branding to promote with your branding to demote. It’s one extreme to another.

We all want the right to choose. The best argument is the one in the middle then, not extremist at either end.

And they call it plain packaging. At least they got the name right.
