I'm just about sick of bastards who want to dictate to other people how they should live their lives. Just get off our backs you interfering bastards.
Following is a letter in today's Times from a group of do gooding ponces from assorted medico-fascist bodies:
Sir, A new report launched today by the Royal College of Physicians, Passive Smoking and Children, confirms that passive smoking is a leading cause of death and disease in children. About two million children are currently exposed to cigarette smoke at home, and many more outside the home. In addition to the serious health risks of passive smoking, however, the report also points out the additional health risk to children posed by family smoking, which makes children about twice as likely to become smokers themselves.
These health hazards to children can be avoided entirely by acting to reduce the number of adults who smoke, particularly parents and care-givers, and to reduce still further the exposure of children to smoke and smoking, both in and outside the home. This will require a comprehensive strategy including tobacco price rises, mass media campaigns, more effective health warnings, prohibition of point of sale display, generic packaging and better provision of smoking cessation services.
Smoke-free legislation also needs to be extended much more widely, to include public places visited by children and young people, and including prohibition of all smoking in cars and other vehicles. The Chief Medical Officer, in his foreword to the report, says that we must keep up the momentum to continue to reduce the harm of tobacco use in our communities, and create a truly smoke-free future. As doctors, we agree, and call on governments to take the necessary actions to protect our children’s future.

Tell you what you lot, concentrate on your own children and leave others to bring up theirs. I'm pretty sure it's more dangerous to send your children to Afghanistan and Iraq than to have the odd fag in your own living room or car.
I can see the day coming when the only freedom we will have left is to take these types of people out into the streets and string them up from a lamp post, along with the vile selk-serving greedy vermin in parliament, and to start again.
If this so-called 'democratic' government can use force to impose their idea of democracy on Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere, we have the right to use force to reclaim our lost rights and liberties.
