Shooting ASH tiddlers in a barrel...I know, I shouldn't but...

...It's too tempting!

The fake charity (ASH (spit)) said:

Pro smoking groups claimed that the smokefree legislation would be bad for business and we would lead to many pubs closing down. The evidence to date from notable pub groups is that the smoking ban has had 'little impact' upon their sales.

Furthermore a recent YouGov survey commissioned by ASH found that 20% of non-smokers reported that they visited pubs more often since the smoking ban.
Yup, they are firing blanks again, I couldn't follow the link above either.

Eh, Freedom2Choose is that famous that even ASH (spit) dare speak it's name?  Must be a typo.

The survey said:

According to new figures released by the British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA), pubs in Britain closed at a record rate of 52 a week in the first half of 2009.
The figure is up a third from the rate of 39 pubs a week in the first six months of last year.
Over the last 12 months, 2,377 pubs have closed down, resulting in 24,000 job losses. In the three years to 2009, a total of 5,134 pubs have closed and there are now 53,466 pubs in Britain.
The rate of closures is the fastest since records began in 1990.
 And here was me thinking that the beer and sandles brigade were all for the smoking ban experiment, what fool am I?

Confused?  Then watch re-runs of Soap, maybe you will get some answers! Here's a taster:

You have to watch this anti-smoking lot. I have noticed recently that are nicking the pro-choice movement's words and translating them into their own bigoted ideology like the Freedom to Choose good health, Freedom from a smoking "addiction" etc... just watch their TV ads and you will see what I mean.

Hopefully, they are too late on this one. F2C has become an iconic organisation and freedom to choose will always be associated with the right to live your life how you want as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else... and the truth tellers and rational scientists among us - including Prof Doll - know that SHS doesn't hurt anyone.

The antis are obviously running scared if they have to try and confuse your message covertly. Of course we know exactly what lying scum ASH is and I hope that others see the lunacy of the information it is putting out on pub closures. Shame the politicians in the main are too narrow minded, too bigoted, or just too plain thick to see it!

Pat, have you also noticed that tv adverts pinch their more creative 'betters' and pinch their words to ride on the back of that creativity...take the meerkat ad for instance then count how many other ads say the word 'simple!'

I never realised that mere words could be so powerful but I'm getting the message...simples realy.
