Podcast: Josie Appleton, director of the Manifesto Club, talks about her new book.
From parking wardens generating record profits for councils through to bans on smoking and busking, the authorities are making more and more previously normal activities illegal or subject to onerous regulation. Yet it is not clear who benefits from this micromanagement of our lives.
Here, Josie Appleton talks about her new book, Officious: The rise of the Busybody State, which examines the causes and consequences of this trend.
