"I am shocked by the size and extent of south-west local government pension investments in the tobacco industry and I am sure many of those contributing to the funds, as well as those receiving local government pensions, will be as well", said Dr Gabriel Scally, the NHS regional director of public health for the south-west.Yup, deprive council workers of a decent pension, workers who would kill to have a GP's pension, a gold plated pension that ordinary people in the real world can only dream about.
Of course the good doctor Gabriel Scully has no ulterior motive for his outburst and is only thinking of one's health, isn't he?
"The tobacco industry is destructive, dishonest and deceitful. We need to put them out of business, not invest our hard-earned money in them."There speaks a truthful anti smoker, his only goal in life is to put a legitimate business out of...er, business and throw thousands upon thousands of people out of work, people who would not be able to contribute to their pensions because of his hatred of something millions enjoy in this country.

Sound familiar? Now that ASH and the FairPensions, (does that sound like an oxymoron to you?) have teamed up I am begining to wonder about the much bandied about word ETHICS.
