B.S...Cigarettes are, if not equally dangerous as alcohol consumption, Alcohol is priced based on volume I.e. strength, but cigarettes equally dangerous and probably more than alcohol are priced regardless of Tar, Nictoine strength from 10. To 1 the same...


So if alcohol is taxed based on level of alcohol , why not cigarettes?

If you smoke cigarettes of the highest level of tar and nicotine, or the lowest level of both unlike alcohol, you pay the same.

We really need to do something about our waiting list culture in this country.

Youngsters are being exposed to too much of this waiting list consumption far too soon.
The danger is that they become accustomed to it at such a young age, and then later in life, they find it a socially acceptable practice. Before you know it, instead of hip replacements and apparently, tonsillectomies, there'll be kids as young as ten, eleven and twelve waiting in line for their turn to get on school busses, at the shop to buy penny sweets with their pocket money, and dare I say it, to go to the pictures to see the latest Star Wars movie.

God be with the good old days when the country was stone broke and there was no such thing as waiting lists in the healthcare system.

Are you in cahoots with an innocent abroad? Am delighted you see the pair of you agree at last.

Well, I hope you all found last night with Alison refreshing.

It doesn't take tv3 to get back to normal though. No tweets yet, except for this one ...



Shane Beatty ‏@ShaneBeattyKFM
I'll be previewing tomorrow's newspapers on #vinb tonight. I wonder what will be on the front pages?


Well, it's something, isn't it ...

Who's this Sam Blankansee? It sounds like what a comedy writer would think an indian name might sound like.

Ah, I just followed Norman's link and I'm as mystified as ever. Is it a real name or an assumed one?

All that said, I haven't much interest in this sort of thing, so this will probably be my last comment.

Not sure about mentally ill, but certainly self obsessed.

How many are really interested in those speakers, as opposed to th e ticket scam in Rio?

The usual suspect bigots are switching between Vinnie and the male diving. Thru love that. But they'll post asking "why isn't the panel balanced?" or something about mental illness.

I am not a bigot, but I would prefer Ladies' Beach Volley-ball
