There was a film called that, wasn’t there? Perhaps that’s where they got the made-up number from.
Apparently, 600 children start smoking every day in the UK. That’s 600 new smokers among children every single day,. That’s 4200 a week. 218,400 in a year. All new smokers. All children. Every year. Surely they can’t see the board in school through the haze?
Blimey. The smoking rate among children must be 100% by now! At this rate they’ll have ashtrays at the ready in the delivery rooms soon.
Then again, the purveyors of made-up numbers and their gullible drones never extrapolate their silly pronouncements into the inevitable absurdity that always results. Politicians and logical thought are never in the same room at the same time so they’ll lap it all up.
The fake scientists behind this rubbish declare that plain packaging wil solve this problem. A hearty guffaw is in order here. Children get their smokes in ones and twos from mates who have a pack (assuming nothing much has changed since my schooldays). Theirs don’t come in packets. In those days you could buy a ‘fag and a match’ in the less reputable corner shops. No packet at all. In those days, of course, it was legal to sell cigarettes to 16-year-olds so a school uniform with a prefect badge on it was sufficient proof of age. I wish I’d thought of renting my prefect badge to the younger kids.
As Cameron of the Empty Forehead turns again on plain packaging, the fake scientists miraculously provide proof that it will work. What a coincidence. Another hearty guffaw is in order at this point.
They are going to get their plain packs. It’s not going to make a scrap of difference and they know it, but they are going to get them anyway. I say, let them have those. I’ve been using a cigarette case filled with home-stuffed tubes for over a year now. No branding of any kind (other than the ‘toxic’ lab sticker on the inside of the case to deter moochers). They will gain control of pack size and limit the length of cigarettes, they will then move on to increasing filter sizes until you have a cigarette that is nine-tenths filter with one puff of tobacco at the end of it. Let them. Let them do it all.
I have not bought UK-duty tobacco since January and that lapse was a pack of ten because I was on three weeks of double shifts and too shattered to bother stuffing tubes one night. I bought a pack of ten on the way to work and on my wages, it was three-quarters of an hour’s work to pay for it. No more.
Now? If I have no baccy I will not smoke until I get some more. Or, I could use my collection of Electrofags instead. I will not pay UK duty and tax on tobacco. Never. Look at that article again and watch what the NHS does with your taxes. What a total waste of money that organisation has become. They preach lies and if they get you into their hospitals, they kill you. And you – smoker or non-smoker – are paying for it.
Electrofags are not safe from these fake scientists either. I can’t see them banning batteries and little heaters and there’d be no point anyway – the device is simple enough to rig up. It doesn’t have to look like a cigarette at all. The more bizarre the better for me, as a gadget freak. Hell, you can make it look like a Shisha pipe and fill it with a month’s worth of juice! Now that would be fun. Mains supply, a transformer to take it down to below 12V, a little heater from an old Hornby ‘Jinty’, and your father’s brother Robert is appeased.
They are going to ban the juice. That is going to happen no matter how loud the vapers shout. They will ban the tanks so you can only get single use cartridges with ever-decreasing amounts of nicotine in them. It is going to happen.
Most Electrofags come from China. Well, China has Cameron in it at the moment and they think he’s a worthless dick. Very astute people, the Chinese.
So the Mail is now trying to ban China. Loads of anti-China stories coming up now, including a claim that China wants to fire missiles at us from the Moon. Even though it would be much quicker to fire them from China. Not to mention the fuel saving in that shipping them to the Moon fully fuelled for a several-day return trip would be astoundingly expensive and they’d burn up on re-entry unless they were slowed enough to be easily intercepted…
Any day now, the Puritans will link China to Electrofag and claim that the Chinese are poisoning vapers. Oh, it’s only a matter of time.
Cameron will already be pissed off with China so a ban on imports of Electrofag parts will take a mere stroke of the pen. He thinks it’ll get him votes.
I think it will get the Tory party lynched.
Best step up my extraction attempts. I’d hate for all these gadgets to go to waste.
