Dear UK,Happy July 1st

Happy July 1st

More Proof Anti-tobacco Lies - Here's one from the past , suitable for enhancing perspective, in these prohibitionist times.

Dateline 1998. British smokers were protesting increasing cigarette taxes and smoking restrictions.

Clive Bates, Director of Action on Smoking and Health, called the smokers "a tobacco industry front group," and said the smokers' concerns were "scaremongering.

" After all, Mr. Bates explained, "No one is seriously talking about a complete ban on smoking in pubs and restaurants ... separate smoking and non-smoking areas should be set up in pubs and restaurants. We reckon that would have strong support from both smokers and non-smokers."

Indeed Gary, they are now so wrapped up in lies it cannot be long before they are taken apart. Even Dr Siegel is now, maybe just, a worm on the turn.

Following on from John's wonderful comment about the smoking ban, has anyone seen this? Worthy of a view, there is hope!
