Pro-tobacco activists have been accused of harassing and threatening to kill health experts and anti-smoking campaigners - as the government considers banning branding on cigarette packets.Yes they have been accused of harassing health experts but I don't see where any death threats have been issued-and that is because there haven't been any death threats issued to any one person. I must point out here that this is exactly what tobacco control activists are excellent at-media control. They twist wordage to suit whatever situation they feel they need to control and this is a classic situation. Best of all, it is caused by another 'apprentice journalist' scribbling in a local rag known as the Luton Herald who determined that shooting smokers on sight would soon stamp out the art of smoking. Not dissimilar to spotting a Jew and herding said Jew off to the cattle truck heading for Poland, for extermination of smokers is the end game! (I can feel the poisoned arrows coming my way already!)
The amazing thing is that none of the anti tobacco activists (ata's) seem able to grasp the fact that it is they that have caused all the harassment.....of smokers! Smokers were abound in my local pub and indeed, all surrounding pubs, until that fateful day back in 2007 when the 'ata's' got their evil way and smokers were forced outside. No longer could the main financial supporters of the pub industry stay inside if they wanted to enjoy a legal product, for it was then deemed illegal to smoke the legal product indoors. Smokers were shunted outside, much to the amusement of the few non smokers that used the pub and then smokers stopped using the pub-and the other pubs around here for now, three of the six have closed for ever. So I ask the question again, 'who has been harassed by whom'?
The Mail decided to sport a picture of a very stern, if not miserable picture of Duncan Bannatyne who apparently has been threatened with death. I must try and find out who has supposedly put a contract out on this smokerphobic loon.
(nice find! :) )
