A Fun Day Commenting on the Telegraph Article About Prohibition of Smoking

I shall be surprise if readers are not aware of the article in The Telegraph about the motion that is to be debated at a BMA conference, demanding that the Government must pass laws introducing PROHIBITION of tobacco.

http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/tomchiversscience/100277309/making-smoking-illegal-would-be-the-worst-idea-ever/#comment-1450630763

True, it will apply only to those born in and after the year 2000 and will only commence at year 2020. What that actually means is that anyone born in this century, who becomes 20 years old, is forbidden to buy any tobacco products.

This idea is so outrageous that one can only think that there are ulterior motives involved. Specifically, it might well be that this outrageous idea is intended to distract attention from the similarly outrageous ideas of plain packaging and car smoking bans. That is, that PP and car bans are NOT AS BAD as PROHIBITION.

That is a favourite tactic of The Tobacco Control Industry – propose the worst scenario but accept the lesser. Lovely, but that idea has been the downfall on many a monarch, because the lesser is still persecution.

What is important is that absolutely no one gives a shit about what the BMA conference proposals. Or if they  do, then they are imbeciles. The ‘Medical Establishment’ is a closed society, consisting of a few dozen people. I really believe that to be so. And these people are viscous.  Really, really viscous.

But it has been fun commenting on the Telegraph article. The reason that I say ‘fun’ is because ‘the bosses’ have already decided.

    Distracting attention is how magicians do their magic.

    These people are just doing what works.

      The good news is that they have had their vote to introduce PROHIBITION. They can hardly have another vote any time in the near future. I think that they have gone too far (overconfidence?) in bring on their end-game at this stage.

    There’s another side of this BMA fiasco. Maybe you’ve seen it, but there they go whingeing that the NHS is being used as a political football. Then they start getting all political themselves.

    Give as you would receive…. not!

      Thanks for the link.
      What amuses me is that the BMA play politics with Public Health England but complain about politicians playing politics with the NHS.
