Anti-smokers Really Do Stink.

An Appeal To Readers

Last night I posted up a piece which was, in part, about the social isolation and disintegration that I thought the smoking ban was causing. This evening, among the responses, there was the following anonymous message:

I am getting too old to stand outside pubs or restaurants. Plus I was taught that it was only 'ladies of the night' that stood in the street smoking.

I have been 3 years away from any social contact other than the odd hello with neighbours.

Being a widow with no family it was always going to be hard to get back into some semblance of normality with regard to socialising, but I didn't think that it would be this bad.

I used to meet up in a cafeteria with some lady friends, but now that has stopped as a few of the ladies were smokers and didn't want to stand in the street to have a cigarette.

I went to a quiz night at the local pub as there were quite a few elderly 'singles' there. That has stopped. I also playe bingo once a week and that too has stopped as there is no pleasure in having a drink there with no cigarette.

I am now on anti depressants and wish that I had the courage to kill myself and join my dear husband.

Thank you politicians for making my life not worth living after working from age 14 until 68. I am now 74 and have lost my soul and will to live in this lonely place.

Nothing needs to be added. Here in a nutshell is the social devastation caused by the smoking ban. It falls most heavily, of course, on the elderly.

I think these stories must be told. There must be thousands upon thousands - millions even - of people all over the country, and all over the world, in much the same situation. People who had their social lives destroyed. People who have become profoundly isolated and depressed as a consequence of smoking bans.

Our politically correct news media will never report any of it. They won't report it because for them smokers are non-persons, people who don't count. So it's only going to be on blogs like mine that such people are going to find a voice.

So I'd like to appeal to my readers, particularly the elderly (65-70+) and vulnerable ones like my anonymous commenter, to write to me to describe their personal experiences of the smoking ban. I'm interested in younger readers' experiences as well, of course.

And I'd like to ask readers if they know any elderly and vulnerable people who may have become isolated. Phone them up! Pop round and see them! Ask them how life has been for them. Get them to tell their story.

I'm sure there are thousands and thousands of horror stories out there, that need telling, and which antismokers would prefer never get told at all. When the stories start being told - and they will be told -, they might begin to feel ashamed of what they've done.

I've set up a googlemail account: cfrankdavis@googlemail.com

And I've also put up a (rather crude) box in the right margin, which will stay there.

Emails are welcome from all over the world, but since this a UK blog, non-UK writers should give some indication where they are, and what sort of ban is in force where they live.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Reblog this everyone. Let Arnott and her sick, greedy friends have a taste of their own medicine.

Come On, It's Time To Go Gordon.



 The Leaders Debate, tonight, has to be the most unedifying sight I have ever witnessed. I actually thought that Gordon was about to go postal on National TV.

ISaw This And Thought Of You, Gordon.



Probably be best not to turn up for the last debate the way you're doing at the moment Gordon.

Yes, No, or Maybe.

Ed Davey came under fire over Lib Dem policy on Trident in the TV debate yesterday.
William Hague pointed out that Mr Davey had said he would keep a nuclear deterrent.

At the weekend Lib Dem defence spokesman Nick Harvey had refused to back the deterrent. 

Mr Hague said: "There appears to be complete confusion in the Liberal Democrat position on Britain's nuclear deterrent."

Ner, Ner, Na Ner, Ner.

Bugger off! All three of you.
You are boring the tits off me with all this "ya boo he sucks crap."
Talk about more clowns than a three ring bloody circus!
Stop stealing the other parties toys or we may think you have run out of ideas of your own.

From The Grumpy Old Twat the above most excellent advice!

Own Goals R Us


There really are no words to describe Labour's desperate attempt to achieve the maximum amount of public humiliation in the shortest time possible.
Pile it on Gordon. No one else could do what your team of imbeciles is attempting!
Even Mandelson is joining in the fun and making a complete arse of it.

 

Fucking hilarious. I can't wait for the next record to be set for complete and utter stupidity.

Oh Bugger, It Wasn't An April Fool's Joke.


 Dave's Big Idea:

“Neighbourhood army” of 5,000 full-time, professional community organisers who will be trained with the skills they need to identify local community leaders, bring communities together, help people start their own neighbourhood groups, and give communities the help they need to take control and tackle their problems. This plan is directly based on the successful community organising movement established by Saul Alinsky in the United States and has successfully trained generations of community organisers, including President Obama .

The seditious role of the community organiser was developed by an extreme left intellectual called Saul Alinsky. He was a radical Chicago activist who, by the time he died in 1972, had had a profound influence on the highest levels of the Democratic party. Alinsky was a ‘transformational Marxist’ in the mould of Antonio Gramsci, who promoted the strategy of a ‘long march through the institutions’ by capturing the culture and turning it inside out as the most effective means of overturning western society
