Remember Myth 7?
Myth #7: It may be tobacco today but other consumer products will follow
FACT: Tobacco is not like any other product ... Plain packs for tobacco will not therefore set a precedent for other consumer products.Action on Smoking and Health were even more forthright.
[T]he “domino theory” i.e. that once a measure has been applied to tobacco it will be applied to other products is patently false.Because, you see, according to the tobacco control industry, there is no such thing as the slippery slope those of us grounded in real life see on a daily basis.
Look, if the slope is slippery, it's the most unslippery slippery dip I've ever seen in my life.Erm ...
The official conference European Week Against Cancer said that the Irish are drinking 700 percent over recommended safe alcohol level to prevent cancer. Scholars at the conference have called for plain packaging for alcohol in the interest of public health.Ireland has only just proposed thinking about plain packaging tobacco yet already the same is being mooted for alcohol.
If that's what 'any old lie will do' tobacco control industry tax-spongers consider to be a slight gradient littered with velcro, super glue and quick-dry cement, you have to wonder how teflon-coated and ladelled with grease a sheer cliff face has to be before they will admit to it being slippery.
