Anthony Horowitz Interview - The Times


...Horowitz was, he says, "personally really disappointed" that Anthony Browne, the current children's laureate, "chose to go on television supporting the government legislation" against the views of Fine, Pullman, Morpurgo and himself. "It was almost a nail in the coffin of the laureateship, as far as I was concerned." Browne asked Horowitz: "How can you argue against this legislation if it will save the life of one child?" But Horowitz responds: "That to me is a totally false argument, because it won't save the life of one child, first of all, and if you take the argument to its logical conclusion you will end up with children locked in rooms being fed vitamins. That way you will know 100% they are not going to get into any trouble."
