Physician Heal Thyself
Oh dear, I see that a bunch of doctors have decided to have a go at smokers again.
The Royal College of Physicians (RCP), using Nanny's "child centric" policy as the excuse, wants smoking to be banned in all cars as well as in public places where young people congregate.
RCP claims that passive smoking results in 300,000 extra child visits to GPs in the UK every year, for problems such as asthma and bacterial meningitis.
Irrespective of whether a child is anywhere near a smoker or not, the RCP wants also to ban anyone smoking in a vehicle (even if only the smoker is present).
The RCP wants children to be protected from not just "passive smoke", but also the sight of adults smoking.
Parks, outdoor swimming pools and school gate areas would also be on the banned areas list.
Sad to see that doctors are so keen to interfere in the private lives of others, given that the medical profession is more than prone to abuse its bodies (obesity, booze, fags and other narcotics) more than other sectors of the community.
Once Nanny has banned smoking, on the pretext of "child protection", she will ban drink then fatty foods. After all, these days almost anything that Nanny claims may "harm" children (eg obesity, drinking etc) can be viewed as "child abuse".
Like it or not human beings enjoy abusing their bodies from time time (eg via drinking and smoking), it's how we get through our time on this spinning rock in space without going completely mad.
I would venture to suggest that if doctors are so keen to reduce the number of "wheezing" kids, they may care also to tell the kids' parents to give up their cars (thus reducing the pollution in the atmosphere) and make them walk a bit more.
Better still, why not solve this problem once and for all and ban kids from being around adults?
