Another born-again non-smoker.

Barry O'Blimey has declared his Righteous credentials as a rabid antismoker. Another one forced to quit who now wants to inflict his personal vendetta on the rest of us.


'We've always known that the fight to stop smoking in this country won't be easy,' the president says.

This man was a smoker until recently. He has 'been declared tobacco-free' with all the sinister connotations and links to illegal drugs that conjures.Now he is One of Them and hates all those people he used to laugh and joke with outside while having a smoke.


When did this 'fight to stop America smoking' become his fight? Why, when he was forced to stop because it is no longer seemly for the man who is allegedly the highest authority in the land to take his own decisions concerning his lifestyle. And if he can't have his own life, neither can anyone else. Just like the Cleggeron over here.

The article concerns the tobacco companies' objections to the graphic warning labels on the basis that it will harm their brand image. Those companies don't seem to have grasped the obvious, in that all the labels are either unproven or are downright lies. The labels require those companies to lie to their customers which in any other circumstance would get the company prosecuted.

They include one claiming that second hand smoke causes lung disease in nonsmokers, with no requirement for any evidence to back it up. Just as well since there isn't any. The fake lung is there again, the 'dead smoker' which is an actor lying down and might not even be a smoking actor, and which implies that nonsmokers never die. The 'smoker wearing an oxygen mask' which is another actor wearing an oxygen mask, and which implies that nonsmokers never get heart attacks or strokes. 'Meth mouth' makes its appearance as if it was due to smoking once more. Lies, supported now by the President himself.

Nonsmokers and antismokers might not care, but these are blatant lies put forth as if there was a shred of evidence to back them up. If he can support such lies without a qualm, what else is his administration lying about? Or don't you care about that either? Well, I'm not in the USA and am not likely to be, so at voting time it'll be up to you. You decide. You can vote in a lying control freak if you like. I don't mind. We have our own to deal with over here.

There is an increasing trend to refer to 'smokers' in these articles as though we are a separate species. If we are not human then we are not subject to taxation and not constrained by human laws. Which is it, antismokers? Which would you like? We'll let you choose. You can come back with 'Well then you can't use the NHS' if you want, but do try to remember that the NHS has already declared it doesn't want us. Heroin addicts who pay no tax, fine, no problem. Smokers who have paid extra tax, no, we've got your money now get lost.

Economies in freefall, war breaking out all over the place, energy prices out of control and energy generation on the verge of collapse because of Green meddling, and Western governments are piddling around with controlling a little bit of leaf in a paper tube.Of all the things they could prioritise, dehumanising a whole section of their population is number one on the list.

Who votes for these people? And who wakes them up in the morning? Please stop.

It's been said that in parts of the UK, you could put a Labour or Tory rosette on a donkey and it would win the seat. I say, let's try it. The donkey couldn't possibly be worse and would very likely be an enormous improvement.

I'd vote for it.

Fact: Inside in every smoker is a nut-job that the hypnosis of smoking keeps repressed.

Desire: Every Muslim have access to subsidized tobacco.

Need: Every car with ceiling extractor fan.

Want: The BMC to be weeded out of its sexual deviants and other psychotics who prey on the sick.

maybe we should be allowed to purchase either 'smoking' or non-smoking' cars from the manufacturer...or lock our kids in the boot, out of harms way?

woah, bring back the open-top horse-and-cart.

why not issue graphic warning labels which state that smokers are highly likely to find themselves wafting up the chimney of the local extermination-camp? i'll do a tastefully designed motif for the packets if you like...and donate all proceeds to a cancer charity, of course.

As I suspected the car smoke 23 times more dangerous is just a lie. According to

Barry O'Blimey is One of Them alright. In the eyes of the 46 million of us who didn't capitulate to the nico-Nazi pressure like he did he's One of Them now, just another of those damnable vindictive ex-smokers who turned on his old friends. If the powerful emotion of anger manages to win out over the wimpy trait of resignation, he's in for a rude awakening. When he ran the first time he purposely downplayed the smoking. This time around he's officially one of them - a turncoat. There's no place to hide.

Everyone I know who smokes despises the creep now and will be voting for Anyone But Barry next year.

One of the ugliest by-products of Prohibition v.2.0 is what I call turncoat chic. Quit smoking and then stab your cronies in the back. Lose some weight and join the chorus of assholes in calling people fatty-fatty two-by-fours. It's a horrible snitchy, goody-good ethos that has ruined this country. It all started with a fuss over, as you put it so well, a little bit of leaf in a paper tube.

He got 95% of the Black vote last time. If he loses 95% of the Smokers Vote that's feasibly 26 million to the bad for the rotten traitor. He then can go back to Chicago and community organize and graze on arugula with his glowering, hectoring wifey.

And one more thing. I can't stand the way Barry O'Blimey prances down the airplane flight stairs with his two hands held chest high - curled up like a ferret. Am I the only one who has ever noticed this before?

The Tobacco companies began to roll over and pretend to play dead in the 1970s and early 80s. That owuld have been the time to stand up to the relatively small and unorganised puritans, albeit still shrill ones.

But they didn't. At the time I was working for Peter Marsh (of Allen, Brady and Marsh (advertising agents, London)as a marketing planner, and also as Marsh's "political adviser" for his appearances on "Any Questions" on the wireless in those days. Marsh was something of an early liberal-minimal-statist without being very conscious of it, and always got loud applause and cheers for his verbal batterings given by him to token leftists.

We wrote a reaseach paper with recommendations, for the massed tobacco marketing offices in London, stating that tobacco advertising and the right to design their own packs without interference, should be defends aggressively on the grounds of free speech. Any attempt to interfere with advertising or branding was an assault on liberty, private property and the right to speak well of one's own products. Yje proposed bans/limitations on marketing were therefore censorship.

Our advice was rejected.

I hate smoking either car smoking or other else. Totally I hate it...

P T Barnum said...

Ah, but apparently he's only a non-smoker in public spaces while out of view of the cameras he's to be found chain-smoking (according to a couple of US blogs and other commentators). Perfectly understandable, given that ASH are trying to assassinate him, or did I not understand that story fully?

O'Bammy was pussywhipped into giving up smoking (just like Tony Blair).
"men" who allow themselves to be pushed around like this by their harridan wives should never be given any position of authority.

Hey, India Domain Registration aka a not very good spammer...

'I hate smoking either car smoking or other else. Totally I hate it...'

I don't much like smoking cars myself, prefer roll-ups.

As for hate, well I totally hate you so do me a favour and shuffle off this mortal coil there's a good little spammer.

Kinderling - you might have a point there. If it wasn't for the baccy I might be up the nearest clock tower with a rifle by now.

View from the Solent - I think I have few dystopian ideas they haven't thought of yet. Best not say, I think they nick ideas from em.

Leg-iron said...

David Davis - the pubcos are in the same position now. And they are doing the same as the tobacco companies.

Leg-iron said...

India domain registration - Best work on that sales pitch, or maybe try it on the ASH website?

It's really not going to boost your domain sales here.
