One of the best lines in that film, I think. If I was a fan-fiction sort, I’d have a go at writing ‘ASHman vs, the Smoker’.
A very long time ago, many bloggers, especially VGIF and Dick Puddlecote, kept on picking at the Dreadful Arnott’s claim that ‘tobacco is a special case, there is no slippery slope, tobacco control measures will never be applied to any other product’ and other bilious utterings from a mouth you could post a well wrapped car into. A mouth, incidentally, placed in a face you could improve by driving three trains over – but let’s not descend to the ad-hominem even where ‘hominem’ is something of a generous description. I am sure their side are better at formulating insults that our side since they practice daily. Unfortunately they are like a football team that practices only one form of pass and use that one move every single time…
There will be major digressions. The parents brought Penderyn.
Really I have little to add to this particular idiot’s mouth-spewings so will let him condemn himself.
So we can look forward to second and third hand food as well as the already established ones for smoking and booze. As for second hand water, well everyone already drinks that.
Soon there will be fat that you cannot see or smell but which will make you fat anyway. There is already ‘hidden sugar’ (clue for the clueless: read the label) and ‘hidden salt’ (clue for the clueless: see previous clue). so invisible fat must be only moments away. The Lard Demon is huge but invisible and has really, really good deodorant.
Simple physics. You cannot weigh more than what you eat. Simple biology. Since you use up some of that food as energy even if you sit at a desk staring at Farcebok all day, you must weigh less than you eat. Therefore if you get the impression your belt is shrinking, eat less and your belt will return to normal size.
You do not need the Government or its pseudoscience Wormtongues to force you to do that. You could, if you so chose, just buy a bigger belt. That is freedom. Having your life controlled by others in any degree is not freedom. You only have one life. Are you going to hand it over to someone else to live it for you? Don’t look at me. I don’t want to run yours. I have enough to do running mine.
It has always amused me that the commies get into power promising ‘freedom’ and when they get in, you have to have their permission to do anything at all. 007 in Soviet Russia:
“Exshcuse me, I have to go drop my load.”
“Do you have a licence to dump, Mr. Bond?”
This is pretty much what is happening in Scotland now. Oily Al has shown his hand with minimum pricing and airgun licences and all sorts of other lifestyle controls and still the drones demand more control. He promises ‘Independence’ while declaring all the independent Scots will be totally in thrall to the State he hopes to be in charge of. He is promising Cuba-style independence. Or worse – Kim-Il-Salmond. Yet the lure of this pretend independence and the hatred of the English means the Scots would rather be smoke and drink free and be ruled from Brussels. For that is what the SNP actually have on offer.
The fishy duo, Salmond and Sturgeon, must be leaping out of the water at the chance to extend lifestyle controls to haggis, pizza and deep fried Mars bars. Using the same template. No effort at all. Just like their Lib Lab Con clones.
Why does nobody see that? Why do all those cybernats go around making threats and not see that they are merely supporting a millionaire Castro who sees them all as no more than an army of currently useful idiots? When he gets independence it will mean nothing. He wants to stay in the EU which is what really controls us all anyway. Independence from the UK no longer has any meaning since Scotland is nothing more than an EU region already. There is no independence. All Oily Al offers is cutting out the middleman.
What the hell. I can always bugger off back to Wales where it is no different but where I will have a better chance of developing a wild tobacco.
And where it is easier to grown your own food too.
Food that is not made of bugs.
