Before I decided to start smoking again after a gap of eight years, every year I would make a point of smoking a few cigars on National No Smoking Day despite being a non-smoker.
I would also encourage the smokers in one pub, that was run by a non smoker and who tried to implement a yearly no smoking day in her establishment to join me in the pub next door where they could enjoy a smoke.
The main reasons were, I quite enjoyed the excuse to have a decent cigar and the other was to upset the non smoking publican who hated smokers but needed the trade.
The pub is now closed by the way and it is easy to see why seven out of ten licensees want legislation amended to allow for separate smoking rooms in their pubs. No Smokers and no non-smokers now united by thirst thanks to the scum government.
Now before all you non-smokers get on your high horses about health and secondary smoking, I do not give a toss for your opinions. In my experience I have found virulent anti-smokers to be usually the most miserable and anti-social people I have ever met. My breath might offend you but rest assured your intolerance offends me even more.
I also resent the governments interference in what people do. I do not like the no smoking ban in pubs and clubs. I find the site of old army veterans having to stand in the rain puffing on their pipes offensive and I find the sight of pubs closed because of the no smoking bans even more offensive.
I believe that the No Smoking ban was a test to see how far they could push the British People. If they could make 8 million Brits stand in the rain because they are addicted to a product that is more difficult to give up than heroin, then they could do anything they wished to the British People and boy are they doing it.
A benefit to the government of course, with the help of VAT, is the closure of many pubs and clubs where people would have talked and discussed what is really wrong with the country - and it is not the 8 million smokers who contribute £12 billion in taxes and VAT every year - it is our traitor politicians, who one day will hopefully swing from the lampposts alongside the Thames embankment - after a fair trial for treason of course.
Of course the government would actually receive a lot more revenue from smokers if they could curtail their greed, because what they have done with their lust for money is to drive more and more smokers into buying either genuine tobacco products smuggled in from Europe, where they cost at least 50% less or counterfeit tobacco that is produced God only knows where. What is the point of the European Union if we cannot pay the same cheaper prices as the other ZOG controlled regions that make it up?
Tax lost to tobacco smuggled in, is estimated at 21% of the total tobacco consumption, which adds up to £3.6 billion per year. That is a lot of tobacco and if the smugglers can get that much in, then what else can they bring into our country. Weapons for the followers of the Cult of the Dead Paedophile perhaps?
Now the rubbish National Health Service costs the taxpayers almost £100 billion a year but that would be considerably less were it not for health tourists from other countries who come here to get priority treatment, interpreters for immigrants, special wards to cater for the exotic diseases the colonisers enrich us with and the extra staff to look after their elderly parents who they bring with them and the babies dropping out of their multiple wives, faster than chickens laying eggs.
Truth is, Smokers are a huge benefit to the country, they pay a fortune in tax and vat and because they die younger they are much less of a burden on the state than say non smokers who live into their 90's. Any treatment costs they might require because of smoke related diseases are far outweighed by their selfless generosity in tax payments and their early deaths.
So if you want to help keep the NHS going, it is your patriotic duty to ignore the governments silly, stupid and wasteful adverts for Stopober, which wants smokers to give up for the month and either continue to light up if you are a smoker or start smoking for a month to help pay for the NHS. Besides, if the Smokers do give up, just what is the government going to increase taxes on to make up the shortfall?
If the government is really concerned about premature deaths then they should stop the illegal wars and Bring Our Boys Home and stop persecuting the real disabled by stopping their benefits and forcing them to commit suicide out of worry. M.P.'s are Bastards - the rotten lot of them.
