Parents who smoke in cars in front of small children are "committing a form of child abuse", a leading GP has said.I have little energy - after lugging my weekend's haul of UK tax-depriving tobacco, B&H, and viniculture** into the house - to tear the guy's head off and shout down the hole. Fortunately, commenters to the article are giving him a justified roasting anyway.
Professor Steve Field, chairman of the Royal College of General Practitioners, has condemned society's attitudes to food, alcohol and cigarettes.
So I'll merely offer him a deal. I will stop enjoying tobacco, alcohol and rich foods once the medical profession, of which Steve Field is a member, stop killing people. A hell of a lot of people, in fact. Can't say fairer than that, Steve you porky pillock, now can I?
