l've just spent a week in Rhodes, Greece and can truthfully say that l've not seen the smoking ban there. l've been in many bars, clubs (prob too many) and restaurants and smoking was prevalent in all of them bar none. Also the hotel l stayed in had ashtrays in all the rooms bar none. People smoke everywhere and are certainly not a target for denormalisation as smokers and non-smokers mix freely and happily.. There is no tutting, pulling faces, coughing,waffing of hands etc etc .... which you would expect at least from the British anti-smoking righteous that are on holiday there. Do the righteous lose their bottle when they leave the UK or what? You don't hear a peep from them despite being surrounded by smokers virtually everywhere.Where do the righteous go to avoid us smokers? ... do they stay in their rooms or what? Oh the torment us smokers must cause them!
On the way back at Rhodes Airport we were waiting at our gate for the flight. Each gate has it's own enclosed area. l was sat down on the floor in front of friends reading my book and started to use my electronic ciggy. A few moments later my friends alerted me to the fact that the couple sat next to them had moved. lt seemed they had tutted and made faces when l was using my electronic ciggy. l laughed and realised the righteous were coming from beneath their rocks again now they were about to leave Rhodes ... not all the way out from underneath the rocks mind. They'll wait to get back to UK to do that!
Whilst on about the subject of the righteous, it would be amiss of me not to mention their other favourite campaign ... protecting the children from predatory paedophiles and sexual imagery etc.In the UK there is an endless stream of regulatory measures aimed at this. These all come with the banning mantra .... raunchy videos, taking photos of children whether in parks, school plays or whatever, banning certain clothing, censoring the internet, turning schools into prison camps ... the list is endless.
So what happens when we go on holiday to the sun kissed beaches of Greece, Spain, Bulgaria etc? The kids, pre-teens, 13yr olds etc are running about the pool, beaches in bathing costumes, part bathing costumes or in the case of the toddlers, no costumes whatsoever. They play with new friends they've found and do so very happily. They are surrounded by adults in swimming attire which in many cases when worn by adult females is so miniscule it leaves little to the imagination. Wrinkled Weasel has many visits to his site because of a certain brand of such attire ... their name? ....Wicked Weasel Even attire such as this is reduced further as females remove the top and go topless.
Cameras are everywhere! Families taking them of their kids, couples taking them of each other, friends taking them of friends, etc etc. Yet we don't hear any of the rightteous condemning this or running off to inform the local police. Why? ... because people are enjoying themselves and not freaking out looking for a bogeyman (who seems only to live in the UK). Everyone is on holiday and making friends with people they never knew before and this includes people from other nationalities. Kids are perfectly safe as are everyone else. They don't need the righteous to protect themselves or their kids ... they do it for themselves.
On top of this is of course the abundance of alcohol and smoking enjoyed by holidaymakers. Taking into account all the above, one has to ask ...
Do the righteous actually go on holiday????? Maybe they stay in the UK with the predatory paedophile???
