Nanny State Australia has stepped into the breach to rescue Nanny State Britain with some free pictures of people dying of cancer and heart disease to put on the side of cigarette packets in case of a No Deal Brexit.

Is this the most strained and desperate bit of Remain propaganda ever?

Here is the story, as relayed by the Sydney Morning Herald:

London: Australia has come to the rescue of Britain, providing the government with its world-leading plain packaging images for cigarettes, to use free-of-charge in the case of a chaotic no deal Brexit.

Plain packaging.

With MPs poised to vote down Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal in the Commons next week, it’s emerged that after Brexit, Britain would be denied access to graphic picture warnings that have been credited with saving lives because the EU owns the copyright.

Britain introduced plain packaging laws in 2017, following in the footsteps of Australia, which under the Labor government in 2012 became the first government in the world to force tobacco companies to remove their branding and replace them with graphic images of the effects of smoking.

Junior health minister Steve Brine said the British government had sought help from Australia to ensure the UK can continue to enforce its plain packaging laws after Brexit.

2018 was the year the Bansturbators went postal…

Whatever you like to eat, whatever you drink, whatever you enjoy doing in your spare time, the Bansturbators wanted to slap health warnings on it, make it more expensive or, ideally, regulate it out of existence. All the evidence from the past suggests that none of these draconian measures work. We know, for example, that in the UK all the government’s fizzy drink tax did was ruin the taste of popular brands like Lucozade, Ribena and Irn Bru; and in Australia the incidence of smoking actually increased after the health police decided to replace branded packaging with “plain packaging” and grisly visual health warnings…

Here are just a few examples from around the world of Nanny Statism gone totally insane:
