ACT Government wins “Dirty Ashtray Award”

johnboy 24 August 2005 53

ABCC Online is reporting on the AMA’s broadsides at our local government’s smoking-in=bars-and-restaurants legislation.

[The] stance on smoking is illogical and makes a complete mockery of the intent of the original legislation.

If illogical legislation keeps winning awards the ACT Government is going to need a mighty big trophy cabinet.

On the other hand the AMA’s argument that the whims of non-smokers (of which I am one) should take absolute priority seems a bit flimsy to me. I want a dinner date with Angelina Jolie but I don’t expect (nor particularly desire) for it to be legislated.

What made the wee shite so contrite? Either he got a kicking from the UDA (in which his dad seems to be a main heavy), or our tracking him back to his school has scared the bejabers out of him.
-Either way, nice to see an apology, no matter how appallingly written. Bye, Mr Small Face.

Actually, I was thinking along these lines.

Mr, sorry, Master Face, there is a big bad world out there that you know absolutely nothing about. And that world really could’nt give a toss about what you think because you are a child.

Learn to be nice, learn to be part of the community, learn to speak properly, learn some respect, learn how to write and spell correctly.

Or your life is going to be very fucked.

And I don’t want to pay my taxes for your dole dickhead.

All the best.

Cheers.

I like a drink or two at the pub. my favourites in ACT are:

Wig and Pen.
George Harcourt.

I’d also never date a woman that smoked. Cant stand the taste.
