Obscenity number one: BMA calls for tobacco prohibition:
The British Medical Association (BMA) has voted by a large majority for the illegalisation of tobacco for people born after the year 2000.
Dr. Tim Crocker-Buque, who is a Specialist Registrar in Public Health, said “Smoking is not a rational informed choice of adulthood…Eighty per cent of smokers start as teenagers as a result of intense peer pressure.”
“Smokers who start smoking at age 15 are three times as likely to die of smoking related cancer as someone who starts in their mid-20s.” He also added on BBC Radio Three Counties today: “one in two smokers will die of their habit.” Croker-Buque also alluded to the “nihilism” of smoking.
These tyrannical bastards all need to be expelled from the medical profession, and the BMA closed down. It’s no longer fit for purpose. Jax commented at length about this a day or two back. Do read it all.
Who the hell do they think they are – believing that because they have a “pet peeve” that the whole principle of the law – that it should apply equally to everyone in the land, regardless of their age, race or sex – should be violated,….
Obscenity number two: UK government to introduce plain packaging (after a ‘consultation’).
All cigarette packs will have to be a “drab brown” colour under plans announced by the Government today.
The proposed regulations will limit information on a packet and see it written only in standard text.
It will also scrap the sale of ten-packs, with the minimum amount allowed to be sold in one packet set at 20.
The regulations will be subject to a six week consultation as ministers attempt to push the measures through before the General Election.
The government had dropped plans for plain packaging but revived them in the face of a public furore.
It wasn’t a ‘public’ furore. It was Tobacco Control kicking up a storm.
And I’d been expecting this. The government always gives in to Tobacco Control. The only surprising thing is that they managed to hold out for a full year.
And they’re not going to be ‘drab brown’. They’re going to be covered in vile pictures.
A 75-year-old man is being thrown out of his home of 40 years inGermany after neighbours complained he was disturbing them by smoking.
In a case which has attracted national interested and divided opinion in Germany, a court in Düsseldorf has ruled that Friedhelm Adolfs, a retired caretaker, must vacate his flat by the end of the year.
Mr Adolfs, who has become known as “Smoker Adolfs” in the German press, has been fighting an eviction notice from his landlady in the courts for a year and a half.
In many countries, he would have been forced to leave long before now. But tenants’ rights are strictly protected in Germany, and Mr Adolfs’ lawyers successfully argued that he could not legally be evicted simply for smoking.
But the court upheld the eviction because the pensioner had not taken sufficient steps to ventilate his flat or prevent smoke passing into the communal hall. He had not even emptied his ashtrays, the court said, and his neighbours had been forced to endure an “unacceptable and intolerable odour”.
Just the odour, eh? Next it’ll be garlic or boiled cabbage. Or anything else that’s ‘unacceptable’ to the little fucks.
