The contrast could not be more pronounced. On one bank of the Thames, the Isle of Dogs: the face of modern Britain, with multiple ethnic groups and its share of inner-city problems. On the opposite bank, Trinity College of Music, divinely housed in old-world imperial splendour at the Old Naval College in Greenwich.

People don't want to live in a nanny state. Thus spake the Prime Minister during a previous discussion about obesity, when it was alleged that his advisers wanted to impose a "fat tax" on supposedly unhealthy foods. He was right, but unfortunately his ministers have been over-zealous in their desire to be seen to be doing something about childhood obesity. Theirs is not an ignoble motivation. Of course, as Tony Blair said, it is not the Government's job to make people thin, but equally the state has a responsibility to give people the information they need to keep themselves, and their children, healthy. Health education campaigns backed by legislation can work wonders without intruding on people's liberties. Even before the ban on smoking in enclosed public spaces comes into effect next year, smoking was in decline.
