This is an American Vid but it shows how the Nanny state is determined to gain as much hold over us as possible using dubious statistics at best.
I’m personally getting fed up with being “nudged” into anything. I’ve lived long enough to know what is right for me from a material and moral position.
I’m heartily fed up to the teeth with Fake Charities such as ASH and Alcohol Concern telling me what I should or should not do.
At the very least I expect them to tell the truth, not just make it up as they go along. I mean for Fucks sake, where did ASH get the statistics that “88% of smokers want to give up”. They never consulted this bunny about it. We all know as well that the so called safe limits on alcohol were picked out of thin air.
It would seem that they are still at it
If you haven't already bookmarked the excellent Straight Statistics, you really should. Their latest article is a routine debunking of some routine junk science from Alcohol Con(cern) who came up with the amazing finding that alcohol sales correlate with alcohol consumption. Or, to be precise, that alcohol-related hospital admissions are correlated with the number of off-licenses in an area.
It’s about time that twat Cameron grew a set of balls and cut their public funding. After all if they have the support of the public then the public will donate to them.
And don’t get me started on obesity or salt…………………………………………………
I think I’ll have another cigarette and wash it down with at least 20 units of whisky.
