Youth smoking stable despite €87 million campaign

The EU spent €86,997,980 on its campaign, ‘Help – For a life without tobacco’, which ran from 2005 to 2010, according to health commissioner, John Dalli.


According to a Library Briefing from the Library of the European Parliament of September 30, these campaigns seem not to be effective in stopping young people from smoking.


...and they spent €86,997,980 of tax payer money, in a time of great economic distress, on this NS (Nanny State) initiative why again? I mean, the "experts" seem to be doing such a stupendous job of achieving their objective of a smoke(er) free world right? All failures and ineptitudes aside, one concept that the Neo-Bishops of Do-gooderism seem to have mastered quite well is the art of preserving their own livlihood (and paychecks) while everyone else is losing theirs.

  1. But you see, that is their sole raison d'être, to piss other people's money up against the wall. They don't care whether or not it achieves any positive (in their terms) results. It's all about being seen to be doing something, so as to justify the vast sums of (other people's) money they are sequestering.
