Rookverbod-discussies woeden volop bij Britse radio

Hoewel de horecaorganisaties deze week fel reageerden op de aankondiging van de Britse regering dat deze per 2008 een rookverbod willen invoeren in de pubs zijn er nog meer partijen die van zich laten spreken. Naast de rokersorganisatie FOREST en Joe Jackson is de Libertarische Alliantie erg gekant tegen wat zij noemen ‘gezondheidsfascisme’. In diverse radiouitzendingen stellen zij zich tegen deze vorm van overheidsinterventie te weer.


Deze week publiceerden ze een overzicht van de uitzendingen waarin zij mee discussieerden.

  • I've alllllllways said that asking smokers "do you want to quit?" and reporting the results of that question, as is, is horribly misleading. It's a TWO part question. After asking if one wants to quit it must be followed up with "Why?" Ask why and the majority of the answers will be "because I'm supposed to" (victims of guilt and propaganda), not "because I want to."
