Nanny state gone mad?

We know that theScandanavians have a different attitude to the role of government and expect governemnt directives on all manner of everyday things.  I wonder if there is a limit?  

news item today from Sweden where a local council is considering a law that will require men to sit down to pee.  This will be healthier and more hygienic they say.  I can understand the more hygienic  - less puddling, but the claims that it will be better for the bladder is a bit far fetched.  

In the meantime you may need to be aware if traveling in Sweden there are rules for everything - including in rooms where you think you are alone.  Wonder how it will be policed?  What do you think the fine for standing will be?
