Stop Complaining While I'm Assaulting You, You Bully

As demands from the out-of-control Marxists in the public health lobby become ever more ludicrous and obscene, resistance and anger has also increased. So a new tactic has been in evidence of late.
THE tobacco industry is ready to sue the Scottish Government for up to £500 million in damages if plans to introduce plain packaging for cigarettes go ahead. 
Scottish Lib Dem leader Willie Rennie said: “I hope the Scottish Government are not intimidated by these bullies."
Bullies? Says a man involved with the organised criminal cartel which steals our income and spends it on bossing us all around?

In the same week, an identical twist of logic is being rolled out by Alcohol Focus Scotland to defend minimum alcohol pricing.
Save 300 Scottish lives a year: end your legal battle against the Scottish people's decision to set a healthy alcohol price. 
Diageo and friends: you are putting your profits before people's lives.This is bullying, motivated by pure greed and it is costing us dear. 
Until you and the other booze barons stop your undemocratic and lethal court challenges, we are mounting a nationwide boycott of your products.
So minimum pricing is the people's decision now, is it? So therefore objections are undemocratic? And there we were all believing that it is a prime duty of the court system to hold government to account for its abuses - which minimum pricing quite likely is under EU law.

Only in the utterly insane world of public health tax-spongers can an unelected body with huge power - financed by taxation the vast majority of the public don't realise is being given to them for the express purpose of brow-beating the public - accuse others of being undemocratic bullies.

Only the most delusional of vile hypocritical puritans can possibly advocate starving popular businesses of cash for simply exercising their right to challenge government in a court of law, yet somehow not realise that this is the very definition of bullying. Only the most astoundingly hypocritical moron can pervert reality by ignoring the true people's decision made every day by consumers freely purchasing the products that public health lobbyists despise. And only the most disgusting of politicians can define a business exercising its right to challenge and therefore test perceived bad law through the courts as a bully.

It's like the playground Gripper Stebson demanding teacher exclude his victim for answering back.

There are no superlatives of disgust which adequately describe these putrid totalitarian slugs.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Ah, the glorious, all-enabling abstraction that is The People.

Minimum pricing is coming. And it's starting on April 6th.

You're poor, so watch the World Cup sober says Cameron and his pals. Nice.

George said...

"we are mounting a nationwide boycott of your products" Can't wait to see how that woks out.

Don't knock it, 85 signatures already in only 24 hours! That's the Scottish people sending a tough message, I tell ya!

I do agree, however I made the point because many smokers rave about ecigs etc and find them totally satisfying, but others don't. This does not mean we don't support these products, I do and do use them on occasion. However, for me they don't stop me wanting the real thing the moment I am in a place I can have one. Because of this they do little to help the stress and anxiety I suffer from.

Thank you, but sponsors, I think not, wish I had some .....)

trashbunny said...

Re Clive's update, here is a link to at least one company that apparently supplies nicotine extracted from tobacco leaves to Pharmaceutical companies to make NRT products

It follows therefore that if e-cigarettes are classified as tobacco products by virtue of their source of nicotine (if extracted from tobacco leaves) NRT products must surely also be classified as such.

Legiron said...

So... Alcohol Focus Scotland are going to boycott booze? Um... no change there then. I'll just carry on then, shall I? Miine's a double large one with two more in it, thanks.

Every post I read on the actions of these sociopaths helps to convince mne that the smoking baby video is one of their fakes.

MC said...

trashbunny, I saw nicorette.co.uk also and had the same ideas. Plus: there is one product which they claim you can use up to 40 a day, being that each one is 2 mg. That means 80 mg, if I'm correct. So too bad for the WHO claim on the limits of nicotine, I guess :-)
Besides, the NRT expressly have instructions on use for above 18 and also for 12 to 18. I wonder... if a "child" may have a nico gum at 15, wouldn't that be a gateway for future smoking? :-D

MC said...

Hi again :-) Where is that NICE on long term use of NRTs, could please someone help me here? And what does FDA say about that? I also came late to the party :-)

ONE is enough for the BBC to withdraw a whole programme, so don't knock it.

Its called making money out of small businesses. Its basically a government money spinner with fines taxes and levies. I only realised recently that the Low emission zone in London must be pouring money into the government, Private cars aren't affected but vans/lorries are. Its the same as banning Coal in cities. There is no real reason to ban it anymore, apart from the fact that coal is now cheaper than ever (£9.60 for 25 kg) wood smoke is just as bad but that is "green" Most people use GCH, but lots of people are installing multiburners. ( Yes back in the fifties lots of people used coal but that number is now lessened even in coal producing areas) I barely see any chimneys burning coal in the pit village in which I grew up, these days. I used to see it on a regular basis but all the old houses that used it are now on Gas central heating. Wait until the gas prices go ever higher and coal comes back into fashion.

On behalf of slugs everywhere I wish to register my abhorrence at the offence caused to the shell-less gastropod community by comparing them to these ghastly creatures.

blowhookah said...

Because E-Cigs are very save as compared to the tobacco products and my website provide all new electronic hookah products not harmful for human body..

Nichit Cigs said...

I agree, electronic cigarettes are the best alternate of traditional cigarettes as E-cigs make very less negative effect on health. ecigarettes are very effective for anyone who wants to quit the smoking but failed to get rid of this habit due to the addiction of tobacco.
