British Mendacity Association

A man dies and goes to heaven. He keeps on seeing this person walking around wearing a white robe and a stethoscope. So he asks the nearest archangel who it is.

Gabriel replies: “Oh him. That’s God. He thinks he’s a doctor.”

All smoking in cars should be banned across the UK to protect people from second-hand smoke, doctors say.

The British Medical Association called for the extension of the current ban on smoking in public places after reviewing evidence of the dangers.

It highlighted research showing the levels of toxins in a car can be up to 23 times higher than in a smoky bar.

A smoky bar? How would they know these days…

But a report by a cross-party group of MPs and peers said non-legislative options should be considered as well.

That means jobs for their media buddies to orchestrate a witch-hunt.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Smoking and Health even said calling for an immediate ban could be “counterproductive” as consensus needed to be built across society before taking such as step.

Sorry, when I said “witch-hunt” obviously I meant “consensus”. I must report for re-education as my Newspeak is clearly lacking.

The group said there should be a consultation on tackling smoking in cars which could look at whether it would be better to have an outright ban, or if more could be achieved by raising awareness about the dangers through education campaigns.

“Education” is of course Newspeak for “propaganda” but who cares when the advertisers can make a killing!

Meanwhile, in Wales a public awareness campaign has begun highlighting the dangers of smoking in cars. Officials have said if that does not succeed over the next three years, a ban will be introduced.

Words fail. It’s just like various referenda on EU stuff where they’ll keep bringing it back until the voters produce the “right” answer.

Neither England or Scotland are currently considering introducing legislation at the moment.

But the BMA believes tougher action is needed.

The doctors’ union said an outright ban – even if there were no passengers – would be the best way of protecting children as well as non-smoking adults.

Now riddle me this you white-coated mentalists, how do the none existent passengers get harmed? But it’s the children so all rationality goes out the window! 2+2=5 if it’s for the children. It makes me want to put Pudsey’s other fucking eye out – that crapfest is coming on Friday – oh joy! How the bastarding cuntery do I tabbing it in the Corsa harm any children? I don’t have any children, I don’t give lifts to children (you can imagine what they’d call me if I did). For fuck’s sake this is a serious argument advanced by people who at least claim to be scientifically trained. They might as well go back to fucking leeches. Though I doubt most of the demented wankers could even hack invertebrates. These days they seem more into treating the rest of us like fucking annelids. Cunts. Deranged cuntrated to the cunteenth power of buggery cunts.

It said the young were particularly vulnerable from second-hand smoke as they absorbed more pollutants and their immune systems were less developed.

The fucking children again! And am I wrong here about the immune system but doesn’t that just deal with pathogens and not inanimate chemicals?

Research has show that second-hand smoke can increase the risk of a range of conditions, including sudden infant death syndrome and asthma, as well as impairing lung function.

Not just the children but now the bay-bees! Like the ones I don’t have that I am killing!!!

Dr Vivienne Nathanson, head of science at the BMA, admitted introducing a ban would be a “bold and courageous” move.

She added: “The evidence for extending smoke-free legislation is compelling.”

“Bold and courageous” – note not “correct”. And “compelling”. Right. Whatever. Basically the BMA can fuck off. I do not care how they fuck off but if we tolerate this utterly vile redefining our cars as part of the public sphere then God knows what comes next…

    Next? The next target for control is your home.

    Then your head.

    More mendacious than you imagine, Nick. Dick Puddlecote (the go-to guy on the interwebs for neopuritan-debunking) says the “23 times” claim is, to give it the correct scientific term, a load of old pish. As anyone who’d given it a moment’s thought could have told you. And in fact its not him saying it, it’s the Canadian Medical Association:

    Kim Barnhardt, of the Canadian Medical Association Journal, said: “There is no evidence to support the fact that smoking in cars is 23 times more toxic than in other indoor environments.”

    Did anyone, anyone at all, call the BMA out on this today in the mainstream “news” media? Theres some Hand-crafted Executive-style Genuine CCIZ Brand Kudos (accept no substitutes, folks) on offer to anyone who can give an example.

    Sam,
    Well 23x is obvious bollocks. It’s too precise for a start. I mean how smoky is a smoky bar anyway?

    Leg-Iron,
    I know but… Really (I should have made it clearer) my point was not so much about smoking per se but about the redefinition of privacy. On smoking they have almost won. On other matters they are either on the way or just getting started. And is it just health. Oh no! It could be anything. I mean anything. I mean if they can try and ban smoking in cars on the pretext of saving kiddywinks even if there are no kiddywinks in the car and claim “compelling evidence” then they will stop at nothing.

    Ninny Nanny state – on steroids.

    Cameron ringfences the NHS budget billions. Apparently this gives the medical profession a licence to engage with the adult population on health issues and allow people to make their own lifestyle decisions without legal intervention save us from ourselves by serially ringpieceing us all over legal practices the puritans don’t like and treating us like the helpless and witless chiiiiildren they purport to protect.

    High time we told the British Medical Association Bugfuckcrazy Megalomaniacal Arsewipes to go up themselves with a white hot, razor edged endoscope. Like politicians, they work for us. We are the ones forced to foot the bills. Without NICs and taxes they wouldn’t have a platform from which to preach and make their authoritarian demands. We need to remind the bastards of that inconvenient fact.

    Apparently the “23 x the level of a smoky bar” came from a study involving a car driven for five hours, with the driver smoking two an hour, with the windows shut and the ventilation off.
    So complete lies – nobody does that, ever.
    And anyway, the simple solution escaped them : advise drivers to open a window or turn the air blower up. That would do the trick. But of course that wouldn’t satisfy the little fascists.
    I hope they are roundly ignored.
