Leg-iron reports on the first publican to be jailed for allowing his customers to light up.
Nick Hogan, 43, from Lancashire, was sentenced to six months in prison for repeatedly refusing to pay a fine imposed for flouting the legislation.
As Leg-iron says,
In this wonderful free country where everyone has the choice to do as they are told, not doing as you are told is automatically a criminal offence. As is not forcing others to do as they are told while they are on your private property.
It is the same kind of situation I wrote about in yesterday’s post, where faith schools are under pressure for not doing as they are told.
Labour promised in their last manifesto that smoking would still be allowed in pubs which didn’t serve food, but that was another of their big lies for which they cannot legally be held accountable, unlike Mr Hogan and his customers, many of whom probably voted for New Labour. They are the ones who have to suffer the consequences of Labour’s lies and collusion with fakecharity ASH.
This ‘charity’ gets but two or three percent of its funds from voluntary donations. Its 2007/08 accounts show that nearly a third of its funding comes from the Department of Health (i.e. you and me) and most of the remainder comes from ASH International (part-funded by Pfizer), Cancer Research UK and the British Heart Foundation.
ASH consists of nobody who was elected or in any way chosen to rule our lives. It is full of child-obsessed weirdoes and control-freak sociopaths who demand that their arbitrary rules are followed to the letter on pain of violence. ASH is nothing more than a government sponsored protection racket.
This is absolutely typical though. This is the same government that gets its ‘advice’ on teenage pregnancy from more fake charities, like Brook and the FPA, providers of abortion and contraception. Then they wonder why the advice leads to more abortions. So they hand out more condoms at schools and youth clubs and make the abortion pill easier to come by and yet the abortions continue unabated and misery and confusion reign among the youth.
It is another government sponsored protection racket.
So, while the state hands out contraceptives to 12 year olds, it increases the age at which people can buy tobacco to eighteen.
While children get state abortions behind their parents’ backs, grown men and women are expected to stand outside pubs to smoke.
The infantilisation adults are being subjected to is astounding.
