The More, The Merrier


Quote of the day is from the irrepressible Leg Iron.

There are so many nails in Labour's coffin now, there's barely room for the corpse.

As usual he is correct. And Labour have self-administered at least another 50,000+

The removal of cigarettes from public display is a step closer after MPs said vending machines should be banned and shops should keep stocks out of sight.

Not surprisingly, utterly pointless political bully state posturing, such as this, isn't popular.

The National Federation of Newsagents (membership 18,000) did at least try to warn Labour.

"If the vote on Monday goes against newsagents - our 18,000 members - then they will vote with their feet. This will be very bad news for Gordon Brown."

The Association of Convenience Stores (membership 33,500) aren't happy, either.

ACS Chief Executive James Lowman said: “The Minister has proposed regulations that are the most inflexible of their type anywhere in the world. It makes a mockery of the repeated reassurances that Ministers have made to Parliament and businesses that they will take a light touch approach to compliance.”

They lobbied, they persuaded, they argued, they pleaded. They begged for the government lies surrounding the matter to stop. They were completely ignored. And just for good measure, Labour decided to destroy the vending machine industry entirely too, without even going through the tedious motions of a vote.

The removal of cigarettes from public display is a step closer after MPs said vending machines should be banned and shops should keep stocks out of sight.

The vending machine amendment to the government's Health Bill was passed by the Commons without going to a vote.

Voting Labour is a filthy habit, and it is our duty to protect our children from the evil Labour-peddlers.

50,000+ voters quitting in one day is great news for the societal health of the nation, welcome to a new life of freedom from the clutches of the socialist vote addiction.

The denormalisation of Labour voting has led to Labour voter prevalence being reduced to only around 27% - thanks to generously laughable policy-making from Labour themselves. This shows that great strides have been made in eradicating this awful cancer at the heart of our country, but there must be no let up. The latest good news is to be applauded as we strive for a Labourfree world for our children.

Labour destroy businesses and society in general. Don't vote for them. Quit now.

Will the conservatives repeal this?

Local shops have a large reach, so it is not just the membership of the trade organisations. They are present on the high street so if they actively campagn they could have a big influence.

At least they are making a fight of it. The pubs rolled over and this is one of the results.

The Tories have opposed it, but that's not to say they might not change their minds if they are elected - there are plenty of healthists among their ranks.

Also bear in mind it won't come in until the election, so won't be noticed by the ordinary voter.

That'll be this “democracy” thing they keep banging on about, then...

" 'Morning Mr Patel, ooher, where's yer ciggies gone ?"
" 'Morning Mrs Batty, well the Gumint made it illegal to have ciggies on show in case I sold some to the nippers. Cost me a small fortune rearranging the shop."

Even if they did promise to repeal it, could you trust them?

Yes, that's it! The denormalisarion of voting Labour. It's a reflex action, devoid of rational examination so can only be treated with conditioning. Genius.

Labour seem hell bent on destroying themselves...and taking the country down with them..

I doubt Disco Dave and the Bullingdon posse will be any better....hung parliament?...i wish...

One of the reasons Labour couldn't give a shit what the voters think is because they know the Tories will be extremely reluctant to reverse this move. In the same way, when Labour eventually win back power, they will also be reluctant to change most of what the Tories do.

Thus our political elite take us forwards, all marching in step with their wishes. The flags may alternate in colour, but the direction of the march remains the same.

Having just returned from Canada l can tell you that a lot of these cabinets that hold cigarettes are nothing more than wooden draws but no doubt Lab will regulate specs for them when they bring this ridiculous law in.

Went into USA too and it was so refreshing not to have speed cameras, cctv everywhere. No problem taking pics either from any police, C3PO's or security ... that includes Canada.

US Border Patrol were funny. My sister ended up with her details on the l-95 ... and my photo and fingerprints!

Guess I'm suffering from passive Labourism. Not allowed to smoke, overtaxed, have to pay 4 times over the odds for electricity & I never even voted for them. Passive Cameronitis next?
