I thought this was a refreshing video.
In almost every video I watch these days, nobody ever smokes. It seems to be a compulsory part of the process of denormalising smoking to portray a world in which nobody ever smokes. James Delingpole advertises himself with a pipe in his mouth, but I’ve never actually seen him smoke a pipe.
But in this video Rod Liddle smokes all the way through. In fact he smokes three cigarettes. He chain-smokes. And makes no attempt to hide the fact.
And I watched not him but his cigarette. I couldn’t take my eyes off it, it was such an unusual sight.
I have no idea what he was talking about. BLM? Lockdowns? Something like that.
All I could see was a man defiantly waving a lit cigarette.
More power to Rod Liddle. May there be many more like him.
