I don't smoke. I never have. It's dangerous and really expensive. I would advise all not to smoke....but it is a free country and you can do what you like. There cannot be anyone who does not know how dangerous and expensive smoking is so its up to them if they smoke or not.
However much I dislike smoking there is something worse in the sanctimony some exhibit toward smokers, or meat eaters, people who enjoy a drink. This joyless, holier-than-thou attitude really grates my corn.
Adults should be able to make their own choices about their own lives and health even if it the wrong ones.
The worst thing of all is the way the tabloids attack other's behaviour to sell papers and settle scores. They studiously ignore their own drink, drug, and criminal activity to attack others.
The case in point is the Daily Mails vendetta against Jeremy Clarkson, the tv giant who presents the most popular show in the world and writes for a rival paper. For the DM every joke he makes is a crime, which is a tad tedious and strange for a paper so dependent on free speech to seek to curtail what others say.
However today marks a new low with the DM publishing paparazzi photos of Clarkson and his seventeen year old daughter having a drive, sitting together and having a smoke. All of which are perfectly legal. Forget the solemn promise the DM made not to use such invasive and repugnant methods when they were caught bang to rights making people's lives hell and hounding Princess Diana to her death, there is something off about going after the family of people they don't like and seeking to profit from them doing nothing illegal. Where is the right to privacy? Where is the news story? More than that how can it be right to publish the photograph of a minor taken without permission without getting permission from their parent or guardian?
You'd have thought with the with press illegality and their assaults of people's private live's the DM would be careful in invading the lives of children in this nasty manner.
This vendetta really reflects badly on the DM and shows how much in the gutter it's stooped.
