"The big message is treat alcohol like tobacco ... not as a substance that is relatively benign except for those bad alcoholics. That is not true."
Remember that they have already set up the gullible British public into believing that there is no such thing as 'benign' smoking. You smoke, you will die - that's it. So, by extension, Gilmour is advocating not just moderation, but total abstention.
It's also worth mentioning that the 'Framework' he mentions in the piece is the World Health Organisation's 'Framework for Tobacco Control'. This is a document produced by an unelected body which is being adopted to excess by another unelected body, the EU Commission.
The European Commission says the current bar on smoking in enclosed public places does not go far enough. It says non-smokers in outdoor areas are still in danger from passive smoking.
It comes after a World Health Organisation report said ...
Did you vote for any of these people who like to interfere with your life? Nope, nor did I."
Unelected shits that control our lives, simply because they always know best and countenance no resistance or dissent. YOU WILL OBEY. Put that fag out and don't even think about a sip of that wine. Enjoy a nice juicy burger? Not anymore you won't. They will be sending out their spies and yellow jacketed, clipboard wielding, automated health observers and jobsworths to a pub, club, wine bar or fast food outlet near you, very, very, soon. They get their only enjoyment out of telling you not to enjoy yourself.
Welcome to a Grey New World. This is the Bully State, please make sure you leave enjoyment outside.
