Plain packaging attacks freedom and responsibility
Plain packaging attacks freedom and responsibility.
The Young Nats oppose the Government’s assault on freedom and responsibility as it moves to introduce plain packaging.
“This is just plain populism and nanny state interference all over again. We can't see how this will actually reduce the harm of smoking" says Young Nats Policy Officer, Megan Hands.
The Young Nats champion individual freedom and personal responsibility.
“All companies should have the right to package their goods as they choose. Buyers should also have the right to exercise their power of consumer choice and absorb the responsibilities that come with such choices” says Hands.
Plain packaging sends a message that it's acceptable for the Government to interfere wherever and whenever they like.
The Young Nats urge the Government in the strongest terms to consider the values of our party before blindly supporting nanny state antics.
