Dying For a Fag

I see that the British Medical Association (BMA) has had an attack of "Dictateitus" and has come out with a bizarre decree that smoking should be banned in all cars, irrespective of whether there are passengers in them or not.

Seemingly the toxins from fags in cars are really very "dangerous".

Here's why this idea is bollocks:

1 It is up to the individual how they kill themselves (whether by smoking, drinking, eating, drugs, fornication, excess exercise etc etc), we all die in the end.

2 The ban would be unenforceable, given that fags are still legal.

3 If toxins from fags in cars are so dangerous, why is it the doctors do not call for a ban on cars (which spew out far worse toxins) as well?

4 The medical profession outstrips many others in its abuse of fags, drugs, booze etc; they are not in a position to dictate to the rest of us what we should do or how we live our lives.

    I saw somebody on the news going on and on about how these 'toxins' stay in the air for a very long time so not only are the people in the car at the time affected by them but so are the thousnads of others who regularly get in and out of your car affected as well and they are all going to have heartattacks and die all in your car and it makes me wonder if the car is to soon become the next reusable mortuary for all the people killed by thoughtlesss car owners who have nothing better to do than smoke cigarettes for their own benign pleasure whilst all around them are dying .....

    I am totally pissed off with these so called ‘experts’ manipulating facts to suit their own needs.

    Yes, cigarette smoke does contain dangerous toxins that can kill you, but so does everything else.

    Any of the following gases in varying amounts can kill someone. It would be highly irresponsible to breathe in large quantities of them, including oxygen.

    Carbon Dioxide

    Mix them together in the right quantity and you have ‘fresh air’. You know; the stuff our parents used to tell us to go out and get.

  3. I must declare an interest; I am a non smoker.

    I personally choose not to get into cars where someone is smoking but, that is MY choice, if the driver/owner of the car wishes to smoke in his/her car, then that is THEIR choice. I do not believe it is the job of the state, especially when there are far more important matters outstanding, to fanny about telling people how to live their lives. If the state feels that smoking is sooooooo dangerous, then they should make it illegal but, they won't do that because it is a nice little earner for them; Kerching.

    We give far too much weight to the opinions of single issue groups and the famous, it is about time we told them to sod off and suffer the type of democracy the rest of us have. I would love to have access to top ministers so that I could further my own personal agenda but, I am neither rich nor famous and therefore, cannot buy influence.

    If anyone is interested in seeing how tobacco control passes off spurious 'research' as scientific evidence then you might like to visit Chris Snowdon's excellent blog:

    The above post deals directly with the so-called evidence on which the BMA is calling for smokers to be criminalised for indulging in a legal product in their own private space.


    PS Many of Chris's posts address the application of tobacco control's template to other undesirables such as problem drinkers who play fast and loose with their health and the NHS budget by enjoying a glass of wine with dinner.

    Having seen a picture of Dr Nathanson who proposed the ban, I would say she appears to be morbidly obese or at the least somewhat "big boned".

    Glass houses and stones come to mind.

    It was Adolf Hitler who said the best way to build a totalitarian state is remove a 1000 small freedoms one by one so it is not noticed until it is too late to do anything about it.

    How about a gastric band for Dr Nathanson?
