    Can you tell me, please, when this creeping feeling of ubiquitous control – epitomised by omnipresent CCTV and Health and Safety fascism – first set in in Britain? I suspect that having left the UK for France as a young adult I may be suffering from a classic case of nostalgia (the object of which is probably a fantasy) but over the past decade or so the UK has felt, increasingly, like a place where the population is so busy consuming – and being made to feel safe and healthy as it consumes – that it has forgotten all about things like personal freedom or even the illusion of it.

    Can you identify a trigger for this culture of pathological risk-aversion, or even a turning point?

    A great image for Britain today! I recently made one with Churchill. We worked together on the Sunday Times Screen & Print and at Sky. I have a new book ‘Whose Side Are They On? How Big Brother Government is Ruining Britain’. It might be up your street. You taught me more about writing for newspapers than anyone.
    Very best wishes,
