Kent PCT Update

I’ve just added a touch more to my letter to the anti smoking brigade which was the subject of my last post. Here’s what I have tacked on:

Point Four:

The fact that anti-smoking has strong financial ties with pharmaceutical multinationals – to the point that it can be said to be a front for the expansionist interests of Big Pharma – demonstrates a double standard and duplicity in public life that has yet to be fully investigated and called out by mainstream media and politicians.
There is massive profit to be had from the sales of nicotine replacements and psycho-active drugs if tobacco and especially cigarettes were to be abolished. It is not a coincidence that the sales of these pharmaceutical products – many dangerous in their own right -- have skyrocketed since the early Nineties, in parallel with the intensification of antismoking propaganda, disinformation by the mass media, and the heavy financing of antismoking groups such as, for example, Tobacco-Free Kids, ASH,and the Global Framework.

Point Five:

I would also imagine if tested in court this policy could in fact be in breach of the Human Rights Act, Article 14, which states:

Article 14: Discrimination

The enjoyment of the rights and freedoms set forth in this convention shall be secured without discrimination on any ground such as sex, race, colour, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, association with a national minority, property, birth or other status.

Anything else I should add?


  1. That you don't like being blackmailed?

  2. Also ask what financial reward they get for co-ercing you onto one of these courses. I heard that GPs and other medical practitioners get a payment (reward) for every person they refer to one of these courses? Isn't that a conflict of interest for financial gain?

  3. Your competition is heavy, see this

  4. Anon. Watched the link you give. I wanted to post a response to this sanctomonious bullshit. Why is it that these groups always need your details and want you to join 'a group'? That speaks volumes about the mentality of these Little Fascists..

  5. Yes. I wouldn't give them the time of day. or..... My details.
