It really isn’t hard to understand why the Stop Smoking Nazi’s would suddenly unleash some kind of mass quit smoking month.
I reckon the whole ‘Lock the fags away and we will save lives’ failed. In fact I know it did. Just like every single smoker told them it would. So how do you make a much hyped and very expensive mistake into a resounding success, in less than 12 months?.
Well you could run a short, sharp government funded quit smoking program, for 4 weeks. You could register every idiot that signed up and then claim, 6 months down the line, that if they didn’t smoke for 28 days they’d quit, forever, and it was all down to the ‘doors’. Which would make the doors a winner, and plain packaging the next logical step.
In reality it would be a shit load of bollocks, but the Daily Mail would eat it right up, and the government funded puritanical arsewipes would gain another foothold in their quest to remove anything they didn’t approve of, from the lives of people that pay their wages.
