Britain on Freedom

Two controversial issues tackled by the British government that pretty much run the gamut regarding personal freedom/responsibility:

The first, which I think is pretty ridiculous, is about the "obesity crisis". Apparently, obesity is no longer an individuals' fault, officially.

The second, which I agree with, is about polygamy. While I can easily see how many people might consider polygamy to be pretty messed up, I don't think it is the government's business. I like that they are taking a step in a more sensible direction, but I fear it is more a product of reactionary cultural relativism than respect for freedom and alternative lifestyles.
