Quote Of The Day

The race is on between British and Australian governments to be the first to make plain packaging compulsory for tobacco products and thereby achieve... well, it's not clear it'll stop anyone smoking but it'll certainly make the first government to do it a "world leader" and that's what counts for most in the intolerance circle jerk.* And among the comments on news articles such as this one, a few typically anti-tobacco frothy hatred (the sort that Dick Puddlecote is collecting) and, gratifyingly from smokers and non-smokers alike, quite a lot on how it's little short of fascism, appears this absolute gem:
Thank God for this. I am not a smoker and I have always been afraid to go into my local newsagent to buy anything in case I catch a glimpse of a cunningly designed cigarette packet that will compel me to buy one and light up.

For sarcasm of such epic beauty, Rob, this blog salutes you. We are not worthy, etc etc.

* In other words straight from the "Something must be done - this is something and therefore we'll do it" policy book.
