Call of the Wilde

Simon Jenkins in the December 20th edition of the Guardian begs the question to Conservatives - If you want a free society, then why not start by getting rid of counter-productive bans on drugs and prostitution?

I am sure many will say of the Ipswich murders that they show how right Britain was to crack down on hard drugs and prostitution. They will cry with Oscar Wilde, "I don't like principles: I prefer prejudices," unless a prejudice affects them personally (as it did him).

The article is timely - given the recent case in BC - and the argument just makes sense.
