Government ban on lollies imminent?

Scott Gilmour of Takapuna write to the editor of the NZ Herald.

[quote]It is my fervent hope that David Benson-Pope and other ministers of the Crown do not read the front page story in Mondays NZ Herald, about the milk truck crash in Waipawa.

They are sure to notice that the cause of the crash appears to be that the driver was choking on a lolly. Given the Government’s proclivity for saving us from our bad habits, is it inevitable that the fireworks ban will be closely followed by a lolly ban?

Heck, not only will this avoid road accidents, it can also be packaged as part of the fight against obesity and poor health.[/quote]
