Around 2007, I did ALL my alcoholic drinking in the pub. I rarely drank at home. I kept no beer at home and a bottle of whiskey might sit in its appropriate place all year until Christmas.
Now, I buy red wine in 3 litre boxes and rarely go to the pub. I drink my vino and blather on the internet.
I wonder what lonely individuals do? I speak of those people who have lost their wives/husbands and whose children are long gone, or who have no offspring. How do they keep their spirits up? In fact, one might ask if their ‘spirits’ survive.
That idea is far too messy at this time of night.
I am, I suspect, a bit pissed tonight. If I am, it is the fault of tobacco control. It was tobacco control which changed pubs from friendly, welcoming places to forbidding places.
Heath is not everything. What would be the point of being perfectly healthy but miserable? That is a state of existence which animals might have to accept. Human beings do not have to accept that, as the mass migration of individuals from the Middle East to Europe has shown. Those immigrants are not the slightest bit interested in their ‘health’. What they want is ‘wealth’ and not ‘health’.
I am pissed on red wine. It is not my fault. It is because tobacco control drove me out of my local pub which used to be good fun but is now deathly. Further, the acquiescence of pubcos drove down the natural resistance of individuals. Pubcos accepted a duty to become policemen, which they should have fought against tooth and nail. The duty which they accepted was fascist and totalitarian, and they should have fought against it with all their might.
But they chickened out.
The immigrants have not ‘chickening out’. They are fighting.
What is obvious is that the EU is unreal and has always been so. There is no real EU. There is only a bureaucracy which has no purpose other than to survive.
There is only one answer, which is to quit. What that actually means is to stop giving our money to the bureaucrats. It is really easy. These people demanded over a billion pounds. Cameron said that we would not pay. But, recently, we have paid.
I firmly believe that our politicians are simply too young and too inexperienced. Also, the world is too complex for them to get to grips with. Therefore, it would make sense for them to simplify everything as best they can. For example, a ‘tobacco product’ should only be something produced by the tobacco industry, and should not apply to efforts of private individuals for their own consumption. The idea is simple; you can create your own wine; you can create your own vodka; you can create your own tobacco; if you so wish. You have A HUMAN RIGHT to do so. Your HUMAN RIGHT does not depend upon a law which forbids discrimination. Your HUMAN RIGHT is entirely positive. It does not require double negatives, such as, “You cannot say ‘no’ to a person whom you do not like”
I must to bed. But this subject is very, very important. TC has buggered up our happiness and welfare, and not one jot of value has resulted. TC is a leach feeding upon the body politic. It should be sprayed with insecticide.
