When I saw the ABC headline “Senator calls for car smoking ban” I thought to myself, hullo, Kate Lundy has crawled out from under that rock she’s been hiding under.
Imagine my surprise to discover it is the so-called Liberal Gary Humphries who wants to further regulate your behaviour.
It is unclear from the article if he plans it to be just when kids are in the car or a blanket ban. Also unclear is how he plans to enforce this additional impost to your liberties.
UPDATED: In his media release Gary makes clear he’s just talking about smoking in cars with children, something few people are in favour of but no word on his plans to have police kick down the doors of parents failing to read to their children.
