Crackdown on deadly tobacco

By johnboy 31 May 2006 62

Katy Gallagher’s launched a media blitz on smoking and smokers. She kicked off with a media release warning us how deadly tobacco can be in any form. She went on to list plans with which to oppress the vile smokers.

â–  Removal of Tobacco Act exemptions for tobacco advertising;
â–  Prohibition of smoking in outdoor dining/drinking areas;
â–  Prohibition of smoking on grounds of educational facilities;
â–  Prohibition of smoking in areas frequented by children;
â–  Community education and information programs.

The Canberra Times is going along for the ride.

It’s all quite amazing for a product which they still allow to be sold.

Even better idea: Drink and drive, crash into some marked roadworks and then sue the Government for a cool mill. You may only get $300k, but still thats not bad for a day in court.

Maybe I’ll deliberately skydive into a wind turbine.

Now that would be impressive!
