Every now and then a story comes to light which triggers a "what the fuck" moment.
Such a story came to light while browsing the Interwebs yesterday –
Now I have no way of knowing the veracity of this article. It could have been written up by a bored journalist who just likes a bit of shit stirring or it could be true. I have no way of knowing, but somehow it does reek of the kind of despicable depths to which the Anti-Smokers have sunk.
Assuming the story is true, let's just look at it in a little more detail.
Smoking may have risks attached. I say 'may' because to be honest I am very dubious about any of the science involved, and any so called risks have been exaggerated to the point of farce. Second hand smoke has never been proved to cause any harm whatsoever except to annoy the Antis and their bovine followers. Vapour is just that – vapour and is about as dangerous as inhaling steam from a kettle [though in fact inhaling steam could cause scalding]. It is about as dangerous as rubbing Vicks on a child's chest to ease a cough
So a bloke decides to vape in his own home. He is doing no harm to anyone including himself. Yet the police at the behest of Tobacco Control can force their way in and arrest him. He now potentially faces a period in prison for the heinous crime of not causing himself any harm.
Anyone who doesn't condemn this outright condones it. And anyone who condones it allies themselves with Gestapo tactics.
Just look to the future here. How long before smoking or vaping is banned in private homes here? How long before our doors are broken down and our houses ransacked in the name of "Public Health"?
We didn't mutter when smoking was banned in some train carriages, and look where we are now?
This is nothing to do with health and all to do with control, power and of course money.
