Pat Nurse's place about the anti-smokers in the UK being not unlike the Vichy French.Whilst l made it in jest, it did later strike me as having relevance. The Vichy French took it upon themselves to ostracise and persecute the Jews with virtually no help from the Third Reich whatsoever. Whilst not having the tragic consequences that befell the Jews, the methods used are very similar.
Lies and propaganda are constantly put out by government bodies and their fake charities aimed at smokers. Our own UK Vichys then use it against us at seemingly every opportunity ... and often with venom.
The government have to do nothing because our own citizens are quite happy to do it for them, in fact they seem to relish it. Why do they do it? ... some say it's righteousness but l think it's something otherwise as well. They enjoy the power that they think they have over smokers ... and in a way they have because attacking smokers has become the norm and acceptable. lt's open season on smokers. Just in case our UK Vichys don't forget the position of smokers, the country is adorned with no smoking and anti smoking signs. At least we don't have to wear them .... yet! Neither do you have to take this crap from them.
But, as like Vichy France, there is a Resistance. The French Resistance in those days were quite small (don't believe the history of today). That unfortunately is where the similarities end.
Our Smokers Resistance is fragmented andvirtually toothless. We make no impact, we have no victories to speak of. Despite this some still think that petitions and the like will make a difference. Well, l hope Clegg has opened your eyes to that false hope. Even if the smoking ban did get a review, what then? A referendum? We'd be up against all the government departments and their fake charities campaigns. They'd flood the TV channels, newspapers, radio waves with their propaganda aimed at the sheepies. All this would be financially supported by the government. What would we have? .... the lnternet and blogging. We used to have pubs where we could all meet up and form alliances with other pubs but that avenue was closed off to us long ago. The pathetic pub companies made sure of that ... f'ing wimps.The resistance at the moment is just political and whilst they make a few inroads we should not depend on being just a political resistance. lt's time for an active Resistance that takes the fight to the streets.
So, do we surrender? .... certainly not! We fight on but lets use their tactics ... fight dirty! Get your tobacco from anywhere but the UK. They don't want us, so why give them money to harass us more? Smile or laugh everytime you light up your foreign tobacco/cigarettes. They will then begin to take notice ... money talks. Don't know where to find a source of this tobacco? ... ask around, it's there waiting for you. All you have to do is make a little effort and remember you'll be saving yourself money too. Do you need anymore incentive?
Other more seasoned bloggers have told you this and now l'm doing the same. Whilst you're at it, source your alcohol too and damage the pub companies at the same time. As l said before 'money talks'. Yes, some companies will go to the wall but then the pubs may then be taken up by independents who have some balls who value their customers. Time to hit back.
Let us say to one and all, and especially the UK Vichys 'Don't Fuck with Us!' Some of us are already doing this ... but not enough so join us. You're either with us or against us ... a simple choice. Choice? ... do you remember what that is?
