Beyond Satire

What is this woman on?

From the Daily Wail

Deborah Arnott, chief executive of the anti-smoking group ASH, insisted it was a myth that the anti-smoking legislation had forced pubs out of business.

No dear, it's a myth that you know what you are talking about.

She said: 'Many pubs have shifted their focus to serving food, so they have changed their nature.'

Who said we wanted pubs to change their nature and who are you to decide for us?

She added: 'Mr Hogan is the exception, not the norm, because compliance rates for the ban are way above 90 per cent.'

And good luck to the 10%.

Nick Hogan is an apparently ordinary man driven to the edge by petty beurocrats and self serving quangocrats. Remember Steve Thoburn. Get over to Old Holburn and a give a little to help Mr. Hogan.

  1. Good post.

    Thing is, if she did admit that the childish, unjustifiable, illogical, scientifically baseless smoking ban WAS causing closures, it would make her a liar. They promised all and sundry that a ban would bring more custom to the pubs, not less.

    And let's not forget, her mortgage payments absolutely depend on smokers...erm, smoking. As long as we exist, she has a job.
