As you may or may not know, one of my pet hates is hypocrisy.
Over three years ago I wrote about the EU and their determination to introduce a Europe wide ban on smoking. Everything went very well for them until they tried imposing the ban in the Reichstag EU Headquarters. Suddenly the ban became “unworkable” and they exempted themselves.
The fuckers are at it again.
They constantly tell us of the 79,000 people who die every year from “second hand smoke” in Europe. All those deaths are caused by people working in smoky environments. If you are exposed to tobacco smoke and you die of cancer, then it was the smoke that did it. Right?
Isn’t it very strange then that when one of their own officials dies of cancer and they are accused of liability, they suddenly announce that there is no connection?
“While acknowledging Mr Labate’s exposure to second hand tobacco smoke and finding no other cause for his lung cancer, the Medical Committee in its decision nonetheless stated that it could not establish with certainty the connection with his professional activities.”
So there you have it. The EU’s own medical people say they cannot prove a connection between cancer and working in a smoky environment for 29 years. They say that “The claims… are dismissed as manifestly unfounded”.
So these fuckers are encouraging a continent wide ban, based on evidence that their own medical people refute.
They expect us to swallow the bullshit, but when reality knocks, the truth comes out.
They don’t believe it, but they demand that we do.
