The leaked memo includes plans to investigate “legislative and non-legislative options to make outdoor environments smokefree” and “all enclosed cars and motor vehicles.”Yes. In the past Deborah Arnott was ecstatic that smokers had been "exiled to the outdoors" but now her and her office of revolting state-funded cocksockets want the outdoors too.
It doesn't matter that even Simon Chapman - a geripratric who hates smoking so much that he earned his place in the institutionally anti-social tobacco control industry by vandalising bus shelter adverts - says that outdoor smoking bans are "ethically unjustifiable" and is contemptuous of their benefits to health and society in general.
In contrast "fleeting encounters with cigarette plumes" in wide open spaces pose "a near homeopathic level of risk to others", he says.
He suggests the relative lack of research looking specifically at the impact of lighting up cigarettes in parks and on beaches is down to scientists appreciating that such exposures "would be so small, dissipated and transitory as to be of no concern".
Prof Chapman says policies based on mere sightings of smokers are "redolent of totalitarian regimes in their penchants for repressing various liberties."But ASH wouldn't care if Britain did, indeed, become a totalitarian regime as long as the tax tap keeps shovelling our money in their direction. They don't give a shit about health, just their bank balances.
They know that smoking outdoors presents no problem or threat to anyone at all, but always choose to pretend otherwise, as they did here.
Amanda Sandford, from the anti-smoking charity Action on Smoking and Health (Ash), said:
"Although more research needs to be done to verify the findings of this initial study, it shows that further restrictions on smoking outdoors, such as smoke-free cordons around doorways, may be necessary to protect employees who are required to work in places where people are smoking."Well no, actually, it didn't say that at all. What that study on smoking outdoors really said was revealed by Time magazine.
Levels rose by 162% among students hanging out at the bar, 102% among those at a restaurant, and 16% in the control setting. Yet, in spite of the shocking statistics, overall levels of exposure for all three areas remained relatively low, and would be classified as "background" level, according to measures established by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.So, nothing to see here, just another example of ASH misleading the public which - funnily enough - is precisely what they were created to do by an anti-smoking, anti-drinking, anti-sex fascist in the 1970s.
As for banning smoking in all cars, I'm afraid this one was telegraphed a long time ago. It's funny that I'm often accused of making up scare stories and pointing to a non-existent slippery slope, but I predicted this 2015 ASH policy goal in 2009.
Deborah Arnott, of fake charity ASH, during a BBC piece talking about banning smoking in cars containing children, let slip that this was just a first step towards dictating what you do in your own car whoever is in it.Nope, it's never been about the children either.
Deborah Arnott, chief executive of Action on Smoking and Health (Ash), said the charity was in favour of a ban on smoking in cars.It's the way they work, you see. Use the chiiildren to denormalise an activity, then once the precedent is set and another tiny part of your freedom has been extinguished, push for the larger part.
The risks were not just to children but to adults suffering from conditions like heart disease, she said
Guido's leak shows that ASH are also looking to ban smoking on stage which has harmed no-one in the world, ever, as well as recommending "national surveillance" for, amongst others, "people with mental health problems". So more rancid torturing of incredibly vulnerable adults incarcerated against their will, then.
Meanwhile, they continue to sit back and say nothing as the sickest fucks in British society beat up on smokers and - despite pretending they are a friend to vapers - have done diddley squat to stem the tide of e-cig bans up and down the country.
There is no more dangerous and obscene collection of hideous parasites in this country at the moment. It's high time the state funding of this disingenuous bunch of bastards was stopped and they were told to fuck right off and get a real job.
