With medics and scientists now acting as God it seems along with contactless payment, non-contact sports and now for last year contactless relationships our whole way of life and own ability to take risks been eroded.

Not content with telling us what we can eat and drink they now want to ban tackling in rugby and heading in football. So with the introduction of broken nail substitutes in next season’s Premier League why stop there. Let’s ban all adrenaline sports including boxing and motor racing as people have died. Let’s ban tiddlywinks in case somebody swallows a counter.

Wait let’s go further in 2018 1.35 million people died globally in road traffic accidents and as many were pedestrians and children and no motorist can control other road users - let’s ban all motor vehicles.

Or alternatively we could all be less controlling and ego driven and let people make their own informed decisions.
