Qualitative Study Demonstrates How To Introduce Subtle Fascism Into An Otherwise "Free" Society

Thanks to Audrey Silk for posting this on Facebook via NYC Clash-

Smoking and drinking often go hand in hand. Therefore extending the smoking ban outside bars could help curb “social smoking”, a qualitative study published online in the journal Tobacco Control suggests.


What happened to smoking bans being about "protecting" the health of innocent non-smokers?

It was never about health. This proves what many of us have been saying all along.

Happy Fat Tuesday! I'm going to put on my party dress.

    There seems to be something nonsensical about that statement. Should it not read:

    "Smoking and drinking often go hand in hand. Therefore extending the smoking ban outside bars could help curb “social drinking”?

    That is, if you stop people smoking, then you may stop people drinking. It makes no sense to say that stopping people smoking will stop people smoking.

    Tobacco Control do that a lot, don't they? They juxtapose words which mean slightly different things, chuck in a couple of adjectives and 'Bob's yer uncle' - a nice, but meaningless, sentence.

    Well, we all know that that's what they really mean. It's just that they can't come out and say it...yet.
