I'm not supposed to be online during writing time but I saw this one and it couldn't wait.
The Dreadful Arnott claimed she would never push for a ban on smoking in people's homes, but with the car-ban pretty much in the bag, her evil horde have moved quickly on to the next stage.
The comments, as usual, are full of 'I am a smoker but I agree to be beaten harder...' trolls. Look, I don't care what you do in your house. At all. Smoke or don't smoke, drink or don't drink, spend your evenings in a bath of warm custard or don't, it's your house, your rules.
This is my house. Nobody is going to tell me what I can and cannot do in it. Nobody is going to inspect me, no NHS drone will ever cross this threshold. What? For the cheeeeldren? This is how the medics treat children now. And there are doctors in the comments agreeing with the approach that the patient's body belongs to the NHS so they can do what they like with it.
You think it's a good thing that smokers are to be banned from smoking in their own homes? Happy to have inspectors call at your house whenever it suits them? They won't be just checking the smokers, you see, because we look the same as everyone else. Still, nothing to hide, nothing to fear, right? Except one day, they see your child with a cold and oh dear, you have neglected that child. How dare you let your child get sick? Don't you know that the State now owns your home, your car, your child, and you? You have damaged State property.
Exaggeration? Wait and see.
On a 'lighter' note... I want one of these.
