Who Will Take Eric Forth’s Place?

Not in his Bromley & Chislehurst constituency, in parliament, as the stalwart opponent of excessive legislation and over-regulation. Today is the day for someone to do what Eric would have done and block David Taylor’s Ten minute rule motion: Fire Safety (Reduced Ignition Propensity in Cigarettes) Bill. Yes, a bill in the name of safety to make it difficult to light your fags. Don’tcha just hate Safety Nazis, sheltering behind “for the kids” type excuses.

Is there not a single parliamentarian willing to don the politico-philosophical waistcoat of libertarian obstinacy once worn by Eric Forth MP?

Do it for Eric, it is what he would have wanted.
