Health & Sports Committee (Scotland) - Warning! May contain nuts.

The video below is the final 'evidential?' hearing from stage 1 into passing a law in Scotland that would see "point of sale" tobacco gantries removed from behind counters in shops and supermarkets; in fact any structure that sells these products, like ice cream vans etc, and put under the counter so that adult smokers will have to get their cigarettes and other tobacco products furtively, as though they should be ashamed for even asking for this legal product. But it's all to save the bairns from a life of dependency you see, isn't it? Yeah right!

The first part has a representative from ACPO (the Association of Chief Police Officers,) Andrew Barker, Assistant Chief Constable from the Fife constabulary debating which system is best to keep tobacco vendors on a leash, a national register or a licencing system. Oh the angst they go through in deciding how best to criminalise the hard working businessman/woman!

The second part is the usual crock of shit from MSEP's & MP's as they wax lyrical with so called facts and figures.

The committee will now ponder on all the evidence from Stage 1 and write up their findings, to be published around September this year.

Watch but have a bucket to hand because your bound to want to wretch.
