Our government have come up with a new way to reduce the number of people who smoke, particularly youngsters. Take cigarettes off display and stick them under the counter! Hoorah! Isn’t our government wonderful? I wonder how many millions of pounds of our money they spent on research before coming up with this bright idea?
.They would also like us to use less fuel for our cars. I know – let’s hide petrol pumps from view and then people will drive less. And obesity is a problem so let’s take bread off display and folk will stop buying it! What utter nonsense.
A couple of years back they banned smoking in pubs and workplaces. What happened? People stood outside bars and offices in full public view enjoying themselves! Young people think it looks cool!
.So from 2011 ciggies and tobacco products will be hidden from view, and by 2012 we will be a healthier nation!
By the way, I am a non-smoker.
