from December 2016 to January 2016
When Lying's Justified.
December 2016. When you're dealing with politics,
even at the most basic level, just fib, fabricate
or misinform. They do it all the time. [Continue]
Growing old on coffee and fags.
November 2016. Infrequently the healthists “discover”
something we practitioners have known for years. Coffee and
nicotine are good for you. Only dispute’s about how we get
our nicotine! [Continue]
opinions... by Troll!
2016. It's common knowledge they use trolls to try to spin their line
and manipulate public opinion. But their effectiveness is limited, as
Brexit and Indy show... and as the SNP is now experiencing! [Continue.]
Adulthood in Britain.
September 2016. They've stopped, deferred, controlled or priced some coming
of age markers out of reach of many. Now some "children" are considered
immature and incapable until aged 24! [Continue]
take the EU referendum results too literally.
2016. There were far more important things on people's minds,
like independence for Scotland and reunification for Ireland.
To them the EU referendum was a means to an end. [Continue.]
Cleaning Holyrood - Elections 2016.
2016. Removing three tobacco control flunkies from parliament
is deeply satisfying - especially Stewart Maxwell, who started
it all. [Continue.]
bans constipate economic recoveries.
2016. Smokers seldom do impulse. Ever wondered what all those
cuppas, snacks, nips, pints and meals we forgo means? The results
surprised even me! [Continue.]
party smokers can vote for, Scottish Assembly Elections 5 May 2016.
2016. UKIP is the only party to pledge indoor smoking rooms. They
score very well under PR - and that's what they get at Assembly
on Smoking and Health - Wish List.
2016. ASH have grand, ambitious plans. They want to build
an empire and they want to go international. And they'd very
much like for us to pay for it all. 5% cigarette and 15%
rolling tobacco escalator is just a start. [Continue]
children & parents from vested interests & the Brazilian
2016. All parents want is a healthy child. They don't need
medieval values nor insensitive idealists forcing them to
have abnormal ones. [Continue.]
Cancer Research UK. Fake charity.
2016. CRUK is to charities as Al-Qaeda is to religion, an
abomination. To give time, money or unwanted goods to CRUK
is no different than supporting any terrorist organisation.
They're intent on the complete destruction of everything
they consider haraam and to hell with the economic or
social consequences. (First posted Sep 2012. Edited
and updated Feb 2016.) [Continue]
consequences of tobacco control.
2016. They brought us vaping, cigarette tubes, cross
border trade, the "baccy run", new names in rolling
tobacco, "illegal" tobacco, tobacco shredders,
whole-leaf traders and the phrase "home grown".
