Cruelty - the Mentalists!

Smoking bans KILL businesses-FACT!

     The weirdness of everyday life existence certainly gets weirder as we watch normality go out of the window. I bumped into an old friend the other day, a lady that has dedicated her life to assisting the sick, the elderly & the disabled through her skill as a hospital physiotherapist. She was peeved. She was mightily peeved.It seems that some bright young spark had brought one of those breath testing xxxxxx-ometers into the physio department (as part of their onslaught on smokers of course) and asked each of the physio's to blow into it in turn.

     Well, Susan (we'll call her that) did her blowing bit and sat back quite comfortably only to be told that she really needs to give up smoking her 5-10 cigarettes per day as it was not doing her any good whatsoever! Now let me tell you now that this Susan is Scottish and an absolute fireball of wrath when wronged. She has never smoked in her life ("I did sniff one when I was kid and thought it was horrible"). I was informed that young Mr DeskJockey was bawled out from here to eternity for his false accusations, informed that she rode her bike to work each day (3 miles each way), that if he ever dared to accuse HER of smoking again HE'D be the one needing hospital treatment and furthermore, that he could stick his new toy "up 'is 'arris!"
     Further investigation has shown that these breath testing thingummies cannot differentiate between exhaust fumes & cigarette emissions-so therefore, to my mind, everyone is a smoker! Susan inhales  an ample amount of exhaust fumes on a daily basis thanks to keeping fit, riding her bike! Apparently there is now to be a review of 'procedure' and the usage of these silly little xxxxx-ometer thingy's - so that will be another £10,000 down the pan that the NHS could have put to far better use!
     It seems that the anti smoking mob have become so blase` that the health issue has now been long forgotten , it is the appearance of smoking that has gripped the nation with fear! Well not really, for as we have already recorded, the percentage drop in actual smokers is hardly worth mentioning, despite throwing £32.5bn at the apparent ideological problem! It's now been declared that e-cigs need to be regulated by the MHRA-which proves conclusively that 'NRT' is useless and we know already that it has a 98.4% FAILURE rate and that that the pharmaceutical industry are frightened to death that £bn's will not go their way if private manufacturers are allowed to continue to provide the worlds billions of smokers the safer alternative to actual tobacco! Pure greed is the motivation followed by not wanting a perfectly legal product to be socially acceptable anymore! How pathetic! 
Further proof of this disgraceful attempt to socially change people' ways comes from the not very nice people at NICE! But then I remember them not advancing a drug to a dying lady (who could have had another 6 months with her family) because a very un-NICE stated that the exercise would not be cost effective!
It also seems that the use of "the chiiildren" is coming increasingly under fire-as it should do, for the measures used are an absolute joke in reality! The farcical thing about all this is that if you tell a child NOT to do something you instantly increase the probability of the child trying that 'something'!
And talking of children, who are no longer children by the way, we have the superb sight of "One Direction" going in their own direction-fancying a fag whilst on their planet sized merry-go-round of singing, popping pills, drinking and doing all the things that normal young trendy popstars tend to do!

Only Harry Styles has not yet been spotted smoking!
"The 1D guys got out for a little fun in the sun and were seen lounging on the yacht, as well as getting in some jet ski time. We love seeing pics of Niall, Harry, Liam, Louis and Zayn getting in a little fun during their hectic tour schedule...but we'd love it more if they would ditch the cigarettes!" (OMG!)
     So it would seem that 'CAMBIO' have joined the puritanical brigade as well and are firm believers that the boys are not entitled to make their own choices in life either! What a sad, sad world when the media cowtows so tamely to such disgraceful social engineering!
Meanwhile, back in the real world, Unison have unveiled Britains financial death (forecast here more than 3 years ago) "By a thousand cuts!" They have pinpointed where the cuts have/are going to hit hardest and just how much poverty this country will be suffering in a few years time-and indeed, how rife the poverty line is already! 
(Peterborough Magistrates this morning-more & more Council Tax cases due to poverty)
However, although we have ever increasing food banks for those of us that are less well-off, our esteemed leader (yes, him, the Camoron) has pledged £275,000,000 to alleviate the starving people of the third world! Unbelievable when we have a mounting financial crisis in this country as each day goes by! When we have 1/2 million people in this country relying on charitable food banks to survive there is something seriously wrong with the mentality at the 'top table' when giving such vast sums away to people we have nothing to do with-especially when they are awarding themselves £10-£20K per annum as a pay rise, could actually end up more! Now if we sent 275,000,000 sterilisation kits over their I'm sure that many would agree with me to that being a far more positive solution! Just shows that you don't really need to care about this country at all, simply map out your own lucrative political career from an early age. Sweet.

(the one on the right simply has more hair!)

     The latest killjoy for the British people to admire? Again it is the odious 'IDS' with the veiled threats emanating from the DWP-as in the misuse of disability benefits! Incredible that the DWP now feels that it can tell you how to spend your benefit entitlements and even more proof (if ever any was needed) that we are indeed well entrenched on that onerous slippery slope of nannyisms.
"It is, in my opinion, a particularly damning indictment of the government’s attempt to demonise those on benefits, and particularly the disabled: to portray them as lazy, feckless scroungers."
     I think that particular two liner in the article sums the system up completely for whilst Parliament indulges itself, ruining the country it is supposed to serve and enrich, it is demonising more and more people by one means or another.  This insidious little man and his cronies need to look over their collective shoulders for it is not the British (fully entitled) people that are abusing the system but all the foreign nationals now deemed OK to nip over here for a bit of medical fixing up. As I've noted before, why are we paying Polish women to go home and have their babies? And while they are now demonising all disabled folk we have an ATOS 'quack' complaining about the disabled claimants too!:

A senior doctor working for Atos Healthcare told colleagues he was “sickened” that disabled benefit claimants can now demand to have their “fitness for work” assessments recorded, according to a leaked email seen by Disability News Service (DNS).
     Well upon my soul, fancy a mere disabled person, an apparent 'feckless scrounger', having the audacity to ask for such a thing. I really do think that it is time all disabled folk wised up and took a hand held recording piece with them when summoned by the IDS Gestapo. When 'wealthcare' is put before healthcare it is time for a new government methinks. It is certainly time for this so called "Foriegn Aid" to be cancelled out! They want to cut our vast expenditure bill? well how about reversing Blairs amended Human Rights Bill so as to avoid wasting so much money on assylum seekers
The Nations Assassins

Now that would be a superb start but then the Camoron got his fingers rapped at the Grove Hotel at the weekend so he is now all 'luuved up' with europe again whilst the majority of his 'subjects' want OUT.  Common sense seems to have gone out of the window in Westminster-perhaps they need some of the "Common Sense" team entering those hallowed portals in 2015? If only my prediction of 30-34 seats were to come true, oh what a shake up THAT would cause!
     Germany has erupted at last-not a volcano but a smouldering fire of resentment at the smoking impositions-and quite right too! Yet again, politicians are bending to every whim of the WHO whilst watching businesses founder and economies slowly die: and a dying economy is most certainly not what Angela Merkel wants, for what Hitler failed to do by force she wants to achieve politically & financially.
      Probably the best news here this week is that Punch Taverns are about to wrap up completely-thanks to their absolute stupidity in brown-nosing Blairs wishes for a smoke free workplace. Their "Debt restructuring meeting" went completely awry as no solutions could be agreed upon. now I don't mean to be negative in the slightest but I have absolutely no sympathy for those few, bloody minded licensees that demanded a smoke free pub-they were always at liberty to stick a sign up outside stating that fact but they didn't. Instead they campaigned that all pubs/clubs should be smoke free as it then became a level playing field. No it didn't! All those little corner street pubs with no rear garden etc were killed off with a single stroke of the pen after surviving WW1 & WW11 etc. However, joyously, it was reported that shares in Punch Taverns were up 4%  to 6.7 pence on Wednesday, having fallen 7 percent the previous day. Perhaps we should remember that they once stood at a mere £13.68p (30th June, 2007 as it happens). Perhaps that blatant liar & ignoramus up at Stirling University would like to explain the monstrous decrease in 'non affecting business terms' to those who who still think smoking bans are good for businesses! Incidentally, CGA have proposed that our pub sector will shrink by another 7.700 outlets by 2018, which is slightly more than CAMRAs 26 per week death toll figures. Good, let them die, let the country feel the full wrath of the people who once happily supported pubs & clubs, let the politicians see the folly of their stupidity 'because they didn't like the smell of burning tobacco', let them see the financial destruction caused by their complete ignorance-especially when most of them are driving round in 'gas guzzlers' where ever they need to go, polluting the pavements and all those babies that don't even know about the pleasures/displeasures of smoking.

( Why was I born into this stinking fug? Does my MP even care )
     MPs won't do anything about this blatant GBH of infants because 'we need' transport for the economy to prosper-even though it's going rapidly downhill. And as there are now 889 cancer cases recorded every single day, despite smoking rates showing a great reduction over the past 50 years, it would do the cancer industry no good whatsoever if the greatest outside cause of cancerous cells mutating was removed from society. You have to remember that cancer is now a multi-national business and not all the glitters is golden as this report clearly outlines! Some of it will make your hair curl, the majority of it will totally disgust you.
At the end of the day a society needs to be cohesive. It needs to gel together so that work is done, profits are made & economies grow strong, but what have we got now? Thanks to the divisive, meddling geeks at the WHO we now have severely fractured societies where the mainstay of social discourse is being eradicated pub by pub, club by club. The WHO couldn't give a flying fiddle about personal happiness as they have longevity in their thick heads-and who the hell wants to be a centenarian, frail, feeble and literally praying for death to come to release them from the daily agony of being alive? Now that is mental cruelty of the highest order-ordained by our supposed mopst superior medical organisation!

A GLASS (or a head) half empty


 Smoking bans KILL businesses-FACT !
     Recently, last month actually, the Working Mens Clubs magazine (the Club Journal) featured a 'keynote' speech by the Labour MP for NW Durham, Mrs Pat Glass. Her contribution to save the diminishing club scene? Incorporate libraries, youth clubs and whatever else the CIU can do to 'support' local communities.
     Now according to Dr Ruth Cherrington (who wrote the book Not Just beer and Bingo, (a damned good read actually) Henry Solly wanted clubs where the working classes could retire, in peace, to enjoy a pint or three in orderly fashion afore they returned home; ie, away from day to day, mundane matters.
     As you are all aware the CIU have been lobbying for separate smoking rooms, indeed, a survey goes out again in next months issue of the CJ to guage the clubs reactions after 6 years of persecution for those who choose to smoke-the results will be interesting to say the least.
     There was one part of this sad woman's speech that really struck home and I repeat it here: 

I appreciate that it remains the policy of the CIU to petition for separate smoking rooms but I believe that the health benefits of the smoking ban are clear and, in my view, are not likely to be overturned.”
     Note that she (Pat Glass) 'believes' that the health benefits are clear! You may ask exactly what are 'they are as clear as' because I find no clear evidence at all-so we have asked this crazy woman, who managed to gain a Parliamentary seat in an area where you could dress a monkey up in red attire and see it voted in!
(The nations assassins-the gruesome twosome!)
     Blair/Brown financially crippled this country, but certain sections of this country cannot see that voting red only worsens their plight. Worse still, voting blue or tangerine is no better these days for Camoron has just returned from his ticking off at the 'secret' Bilderberg meeting and Cleggs mob are finished as they are useless-in fact they are worse than useless! The sooner this country, realises that a purple vote will be for the betterment of this country the better, for the "foraging Faragers" are hell-bent on getting us OUT of this excruciatingly painful alliance with the EU version of the Titanic.
     However, I digress, so back to our response to this blatantly 'out of her depth' female who's tirade we had the great displeasure to listen to/read about.

Dear Pat Glass (MP),

I have read your speech at the CIU conference and also the retort in the Club Journal from Mr Sean Spillane, who I must say is justifiably angry.

Your response to his letter is: “I appreciate that it remains the policy of the CIU to petition for separate smoking rooms but I believe that the health benefits of the smoking ban are clear and, in my view, are not likely to be overturned.”

I must immediately ask the question Mrs Glass, “exactly how, and precisely where can you prove to me that the health benefits are clear?”

You have yourself, in one simple master-stroke of sheer ‘un-genius’, shown the world that you know nothing of what smoking is all about, as first the French, and now the Italians have openly admitted that smoking bans have absolutely nothing to do with health! They are about people’s perceptions of what looks good and what doesn’t-end of!

So, would you be referring to the mercurial heart attack studies that showed a 17% drop after the smoking ban - the shamefully distorted ‘study’ by Prof Jill Pell that was absolutely rubbished within 48hrs of its release-or do her bogus ‘statistics’ not matter as they initially showed the required result?

Would you be referring to the ‘so called’ asthma studies that showed massive decreases in asthma cases needing hospital treatments – again by the highly tarnished Jill Pell and again comprehensively discredited within 48hrs of release- or do her bogus ‘statistics’ not matter as they initially showed the required result? Asthma & traffic fumes anyone? Asthma has been here since Roman times-has it not!

Would you deem the smoking ban a huge success when Scotland have reported a virtual 0% decrease in smokers after 7 miserable years of stigmatisation, denormalisation & absolute discrimination; some areas still showing a 33% prevalence and with 6 pubs closing per week the economy is diminishing too.

            Would you deem the smoking ban a huge success when Wales have just admitted that they are ‘distraught’ after having formulated that they have only occasioned a 1% decrease in six years of bullying smokers?

Would you deem the smoking ban a success when an insurance company reports that there are now at least 3 million ‘secret’ smokers; ie 3,000,000+ people that now feel it to be a crime to be honest for fear of moral/public retribution?

Would you agree that closing 12,000+ businesses is a sign of great success, not to mention the closures of pubs & clubs alone now running at 26 per week. What about the health of all those people, devastated at losing their life’s ambition, their ‘retirement fund’, their livelihoods, their homes & their dignity; do you think that their health has improved at all Mrs Glass-or are they simply collateral damage to a member of the party that promised exemptions?

Would you also agree that, with all the social outlets closing, loneliness is improving the health of our ever, longer lasting populace? Jeremy Hunt certainly doesn’t think it is as 1 in 5 has only a television set for company!

Do you actually think that the smoking ban has improved the health of the 200,000 now unemployed that once worked within the hospitality sector? Labour can only blame themselve’s for starting the new unemployment craze!

Do you ever wonder why not one death has been recorded as caused by Second Hand Smoke?

Do you ever wonder what the government (including Labour if they ever regain power-and I certainly cannot see the people of this country being so stupid as to vote for such, although there is ‘now’t so strange as folk’) will do without “Tobacco Taxes” which amount to approximately £11bn per annum? Oh sorry Mrs Glass, of course that won’t ever happen as tobacco will never be made illegal - governments can’t ‘do’ without the revenue!

Do you ever wonder at the unbelievable amount of rubbish that ASH, CRUK come out with (it cannot possibly be proved that SHS is responsible for approximately 11,000 deaths each year), or, the incredible surveys suddenly produced by Peter Kellner (YouGov) to supposedly back-up these so called studies?

Do you ever sit back and ask yourself who is actually benefitting from this anti-smoking propaganda? Did you not ask why certain smoking cessation drugs (Champix et al) were rushed into the market place before testing had been concluded? Did you not ask the families of those killed by Champix, Chantix, Zyban, Varencline if they thought their loved one’s health had benefited-or even if the deceased people’s health had improved before they became deceased?
(The company that found more than 2,000 lawsuits filed against them!)
Do you ever wonder why we are paying the World Health Organisation circa $33m per annum, only for them to tell us how to destroy our economy-or are such matters immaterial?

Do you ever wonder, after 40 years of trying to eradicate illegal drugs (and finally admitting defeat last year), just how many $trillions the above named organisation wasted in pursuit of the impossible-or does the cost not bother you at all?

Do you know that this smoking ban (upon the orders of the vile & destructive EU) [check Lacors if you wish] has corrupted our legal system to such an extent that any smoking related prosecutions are now looked upon as guilty until proven innocent and not the correct way, which once gave our legal system the greatest credibility in the world-or don’t you care about that either?

Do you know that the WHO are now pressurising poor countries to eradicate their tobacco plantations, eg Zimbabwe (to start with), which will throw another 4 million people into poverty after decades of fighting to survive-or do you even care?

Do you know how many nurses or night-time workers have been assaulted, beaten, raped, even murdered because they were forced outside to enjoy their ‘fag break’-or do you even care?

Do you care about the children that have died simply because the anti-smoking Jihad have brainwashed a parent that smoking is ‘the mother of all evils’-or do you even care?

Do you know how many children have committed suicide for fear of facing family shame for having the audacity to experiment (as all children do with something or other) with a cigarette-or do you even care?

My club membership this year saw me move up the list by some 300 places, yet upon checking the public records I found that considerably less than 20 members had actually died. ‘They’ hadn’t moved on to the club less than a mile down the road either because that shut down 2 years ago thanks to the smoking ban. The smokers had simply learned to drink at home as many now do-house “drinky/smoky’s” or garden “drinky/smoky’s”, they really are becoming quite the norm. This, of course, greatly assists the closure rates -or don’t you care about that either?

The smoking ban has, at time of writing, cost this country £32.5bn and has achieved very little, excepting of course, aiding the wealth of certain anti-tobacco organisations and their employees; death registers show very little difference year on year.

Funnily enough Mrs Glass, 80% of lung cancers are NOT attributable to smoking/smokers/SHS and 49% of lung transplants are from smokers!

How many more questions would you like me to ask Mrs Glass? How much more proof would you like before you accept that the smoking ban has been an all-round disaster and is only upheld by the very few that simply abhor the smell of smoke yet happily walk around snorting up exhaust fumes by the cubic litre? There is one photograph that sums the hypocrisy of this smoking ban up very nicely for our children are subjected to massive amounts of poisonous fumes the moment they are taken outside for the first time…
(Hit me with your toxic stick, hit me, HIT ME!)
Government is fighting off £300m fines from the EU for our abysmal air pollution yet you happily blame the humble cigarette-unbelievable! You are one of the many who will happily sit back and watch this country into bankruptcy because none of the politicians that voted in complete ignorance (and were sucked in by ASHs ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ campaign) have the balls to stand up and state the truth-a total ban was WRONG.

You mentioned that you had ‘listened to many complaints about the smoking ban’ but you have decided it will never be repealed. Who are you Mrs Glass? You are an elected representative of the people, not the judge, jury & executioner on matters that you disagree with-why do you not put a sign up on your website/surgery door stating that people are only allowed to talk with you about things that you like and that democracy no longer lives in North West Durham!
            (Raise a glass to Adolf!)                                (….. but not pubs & clubs)

As a final word on your abysmal speech Mrs Glass, as a fellow non-smoker, no one is asking “…… to be overturned”. May I ask who has asked, specifically, for the smoking ban to be overturned? Amended, yes, without doubt, the most sensible option of all. How many clubs are of the single room model (one I think!) therefore all clubs could easily accommodate a smoking room and a non-smoking room. Staff would have an option of working in the smoking room or not, depending on their opinions on this idiotic law. But as your party deemed it fit to leave government at the last election with the hilariously funny little note “Sorry, but there is nothing left” I doubt very much that common sense will prevail!

And considering that this law was blasted through on the back of lies, fabrications, manipulated statistics & total utter junk science then it certainly does not show the competence of the Labour Party in good light at all-and you are part of it now, so what hope for this country?

I look forward to your response with great interest Mrs Glass.

Yours sincerely

Phil Johnson

     So folks, according to this silly woman who knows s.b.a about the needs of the working classes, we now need giant shopping malls (hypermarkets even?) where pubs, clubs, butchers, libraries, girl guide groups, street sellers, a Wilco's, a B&Q, maybe a travel agents and a hairdressers, not to mention a betting Office, can all be incorporated under one roof. Hopefully, somewhere under that giant canopy will be a place for one of the few remaining WMC's-because someone might just want a chance to get away from all the above mentioned and to sit quietly with a pint-just as Henry Solly envisaged!
     Who needs MPs like this where the glass is obviously half empty?
