Smoking bans kill businesses - FACT!
An OPEN letter to Mr Cameron
You did ask us to ‘call me Dave’ in the run up to your first election so I assume that it is still OK to do so?
I write with a view to correcting some monumental mistakes you (and your government) are making on a daily, weekly & monthly basis – I can only hope that you heed my words of warning Dave. Let us start with your aversion to keeping this country as the country that our forefathers fought for – why are you so eager to give this country away to foreigners?
Why are you so hell bent on leaving the doors open for any ‘old Joe’ or ‘sand-biter’ to enter, settle and claim our benefits? Do you not realise that we simply cannot afford to be the ‘dumping ground’ for the world’s unfortunates? These people are making their way here because they know we are a soft touch, but we cannot afford to be any longer. They have ruined their own countries and now want to set about ruining ours – and you are letting them do just that Dave. Why? When the Poles started arriving a few years ago it was estimated (yes, estimated by a Labour government) that a mere 16,000 would travel to this country – we now have 480,000….. and how much money, in benefits, do we now send over to Poland every week? (oh yes, a mere £250,000 per week in Child Benefits alone!) Yes, many of them came here for work purposes but the problems soon arose when they were happy to work for a lot less money than British workers, thus the problems for British workers soon began. However, the problems escalated as more and more EU dwellers made their way here….. to the land of milk, honey & benefits! Look at what is arriving from Romania Dave, families of 10/11/12/14 and all with the intent of claiming benefits & housing. I dare not mention the unbelievably high crime figures relating to these people!
Let us update slightly Dave (I hope I can still call you Dave?) and look at the latest problem to manifest itself over the past five years – the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood (or whatever you choose to call it). What are you doing about it Dave? Why haven’t you banned the ‘burqa’ for that hooded mask hides a multitude of sins & sinners. Syria, France, Belgium & Holland have already banned this fearsome garment for they have realised that nobody knows what may lurk behind such a face cloth; female ,or male, or terrorist or both? Many other countries are taking similar steps as they realise the danger that lurks behind the “Asian Balaclava”. It’s a bit late to ask questions when a burqa clad person (possibly a child) explodes and ‘takes out’ maybe half a dozen perfectly innocent people going about their lawful daily business….. don’t you think Dave? This brings us onto the topic of Sharia Law, which of course has no place in this country, so you would think! But, the problems arise when you find out that there are ‘Sharia Courts’ all over our once green & pleasant land. Does Sharia law have any place in this country Dave? Certainly not, for we have our own legal system which, until 8 years ago could easily be heralded as the fairest and most honest judicial system in the world-but no longer unfortunately, as one disgracefully implemented law destroyed all the honourability built up over centuries. It matters not a jot which country these people come from, it matters not which religion/faith they adhere to, the fact is that they choose to come here to live thus they should, quite simply, abide by our rules, our laws and our customs. We did not/do not ask them to leave their war torn, germ ridden, underdeveloped countries Dave, they chose/choose to do so as living in their own countries is rapidly becoming a ‘NoNo’! Fanatical Muslims killing everything in sight – do we need that here Dave? Do I need to mention Lee Rigby in this missive? Do I need to mention that anything & everything seems to upset these people? Do I need to mention ‘vigilante sharia’ in parts of Londob or ‘crooked muslim mayors’ in Tower hamlets? Do I need to mention the terrible wrongs effected by Boko Haram in Nigeria (roots already in this country) as they think they can set up an Islamic state through brute force & murder alone! Do YOU want that to come to the streets of our once green & pleasant land Dave?
Now let’s get back to some of the more home grown problems affecting the good people of this country – AUSTERITY. I see that the latest set of people lined up by your rather snooty buddy, George, are those that are working but receive such as Tax Credits to top up their wages to a liveable standard, thus ensuring that those people easily slide into the poverty trap – which of course you will have created! Question Dave: “will this reduction also apply to all those people NOT living in this country but still (somehow) receiving from our benefits system?” Why do you feel that people already living on the breadline, or just below, can afford to prop up your austerity measures when MP’s are bestowed with a 10% pay rise? Why are you so keen to furnish other countries with “Foreign Aid”, to the tune of £12bn when all they do is to send rockets into space or build expensive palaces whilst their subjects starve – don’t you think that charity starts at home Dave? These people don’t need our money… WE DO!
My local hospitals faced a £40m deficit last year but you were happier sending half of that amount, £19m, to S Africa (of which £17.5 was spent on the palace!). Charity obviously begins in S Africa, eh Dave! Why would that be Dave, are you following ‘NWO’/Bilderberg directions to destroy this once great country so as to join the great SS-EU-Titanic and all that is sinking within that framework? Germany failed to beat us in two World wars yet you are handing us to them on a plate – is there not some form of treasonable offence in there somewhere Dave? I don’t want my country over-run by foreigners – do you? Are you no longer proud of being a white English male, married to a white English female anymore Dave? Do you now feel that this once great independent nation should become the dustbin of Africa/Asia whereby anyone from anywhere can camp on our streets and simply claim discrimination or racism because they don’t have what the majority in this country have worked so hard for?
You, for all your supposed wisdom, now want Turkey to become part of the very EU that 66%-72% of British people want out of – why? With a population of some 80million & 99.8% of those people being of the Muslim ‘faith’ why on earth do you think that Turkey need to be integrated into the EU (?) unless of course you are trying to get our Ford Transit factory back to Southampton! (How many more jobs sacrificed Dave?) Do you not think that we have enough problems with the Muslim ‘faith’ as it is when we have lunatic clerics preaching hatred on our streets on a daily basis?
Jobs. What jobs are we talking about Dave, with regard to importing more immigrants? Any idea where these jobs happen to be perchance? Let me give you an example Dave, a very simple example if I may. According to ‘FOI’ requests last Jan/Feb this extremely multicultural city of ours declared 2,342 actual job vacancies, followed by another request answered with a total of 10,007 unemployed people within the city boundaries – so why do we need more immigration Dave? For every ten (10) new immigrants only one (1) might gain employment (hopefully they will speak English!) which leaves the other nine (9) claiming all manner of benefits – now that situation is NOT sustainable is it Dave! Remember Charles Dickins/Mr Micawber perchance?
We talk about a housing shortage but every day you dillydally Dave, more & more unrequired immigrants land on our shores, which means more & more unnecessary costs to this country….. in every department. Why can you not see that we DO NOT need more people here, especially people that have little or no social skills or conscience, live by a completely different creed and literally breed like rabbits? It is no secret that In Brussels alone, the top seven baby boys' names recently were Mohamed, Adam, Rayan, Ayoub, Mehdi, Amine and Hamza and that the Muslim population in Spain has quadrupled since 1998! Can you not see that the Muslim leaders have declared that “their time has come” to rule the earth and by opening the immigration doors (or rather simply failing to shut them in the first place) you are allowing this siege to occur. As one leading cleric said not too long ago, “we can make lots of babies so we can send lots of small, walking time bombs anywhere we want”. Do you understand that simple logic Dave? Do you understand that a small suicide bomber hidden under that black garb & burqa could be standing right next to you ready to blast you into eternity, for you are simply an ‘infidel’! Sadly, you are an ‘infidel’ that is happy to allow more & more of these people into this country. Don’t be surprised if civil war breaks out and don’t be surprised if your dwindling police forces fail to ‘back’ you either, for they will be fighting for their survival just the same as we (your happiness chart people) will be! It seems that your rather silly austerity measures will come back to bite your gluteus-maximus most severely.
I mentioned our declining legal system earlier Dave so I will now elaborate and also show your government up for the stupidity it deems as logical progression! The smoking ban law was obviously brought in to kill of businesses and pauperise people – and it has succeeded admirably with 15,000 businesses closed since 2007 and in excess of 200,000 being made unemployed. Congratulations on a wonderfully successful campaign to prove just how out of touch Westminster really is! It can’t possibly have been brought in to lessen the number of smokers as we still have 11-12million smokers in this country despite what that vastly overpaid anti-tobacco zealot (Arnott) says to the contrary. All the smoking has done (apart from the above) is to create a society of secret smokers! As for ASH, a charity in name only, what have they achieved apart from a great deal of media hype, a great deal of noise and an even greater amount of hatred of one harmless section of society by another, much larger, section of society. Isn’t that discrimination or does it not matter as ‘they are only smokers’. You announced a purge on the quangos, I wait with bated breath! But talking of legal matters Dave, don’t you think that false prosecutions, false evidence & false convictions should NOT be around in this day and age (?) or is it the case yet again that ‘they are only smokers’? It appals me that our legal system has been so easily corrupted so as to enforce a ridiculous law that is killing businesses on a daily basis – doesn’t it you as well Dave?
Of course the other not insignificant matter is the cost of all this ridiculous anti-smoking fury - £1/2bn per calendar month is the figure Dave: were you even aware of that or are you so blinded by Arnott/ASH et al that you simply refuse to accept this figure. You complain that our welfare bill is crippling this country yet you also attempt to cause longevity by employing a smoking ban which supposedly causes the welfare bill to rise considerably! How bizarre is that I ask? Surely, if smoking causes earlier deaths (not proven), you need people to smoke more & die earlier to save this country from financial extinction! (One of your election candidates couldn’t answer that either!)
How is your happiness chart going Dave? Is it blooming like a spring flower or has that idea ‘gone out of the window’ due to much unhappiness amongst your populace? I remember you asking for the opinion of ‘the man in the street’ before your first election. I wrote for a meeting on seven occasions….. all to no response; I can only assume that this missive will meet the same fate which is why I have resorted to public media outlets. Of course you could always answer this letter truthfully and tell me that you don’t really care about the British people anymore and that all you are looking for is a nice fat pension for two terms as Prime Minister and the unwanted tag of selling your soul to the devil!
I look forward to your response with interest as I am putting a hard earned 1st class stamp on the envelope and posting to Downing Street.
