For every action, there is an over-reaction

Never thought I'd find myself in total agreement with the Daily Telegraph.

A fart on Thomas Putnam!

Right, I'm off to bludgeon a fox cub.

  1. Have you ever considered that if people simply observed the law (like those lovely, law abiding fox hunting scum people) it would not cost the government anything?

    Seriously though: rather than having diluted smoke to contend with, we will now have to run the gauntlet of concentrated ghettos of puffing billies outside every pub & restaurant!

  2. Well, I suppose I will just have to go ahead & die of lung cancer, like my parents!

  3. If so-called passive smoking were that dangerous, we'd all be dead by now.

    Besides, you won't need to get into a pub or restaurant soon: the health puritans, flushed with success, are already setting their sites on the drinkers and eaters.

    I'm off to make a cup of tea (while I'm still allowed to).

  4. A lot of us already already are. Just ask Roy Castle. (on no, you can't, he died from passive smoking!)

  5. No, Roy Castle (whom I greatly admired, by the way)claimed he contracted lung cancer through passive smoking. Thepresumed link between passive smoking and lung cancer is statistical. It can't be proven in any one case.
