The HYPOCRISY of councils!

This is unbelievable as far as double standards go – and even more so as it comes from Bradford Council who prosecuted yet another shisha bar/cafe as reported here a few days ago. Let me remind you of some of the ‘verbal gems‘ from Council staff:

Another murder-nothing new then!

     An Islington (London) shisha cafe that repeatedly flouted the smoking ban has been hit with a £3,000 fine. More easy money for the now corrupted judicial system of this country. We have a law that basically kills off certain types of businesses and lines the pockets of those who decide on the format of such laws. What a crazy country we now live in!

All the proof you ever needed of corruption is here folks!

     We have stated all along that the EU directive was to use the courts to deter any would be sinners with regard to the smoking ban ban this latest conviction is far beyond the realms of  ‘the benefit of the doubt’ or even ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ – for the latter maxim has definitely been totally forgotten by our legal system and those that sit in judgement. Just prior to the smoking ban law being implemented  I was informed by a magistrate friend

 

Common sense does prevail

As the lunatics find the truth emerging and that their idiotic idealism will eventually fail completely we find that outdoor shisha smoking laws have been quickly amended in Souq Wafiq

 

Leeds Council – a new “Praying Mantis”

     Anyone taking any notice of what is going on ‘ooop north’ lately? Leeds Council have now decided that “More needs to be done to deal with the creeping health timebomb that is Leeds’s growing shisha culture, licensing bosses have been told.”

     A creeping timebomb??? Priceless really when consider that this “timebomb” has been going on for 3,000 years!

Utter stupidity!

I am sorry to have to say this but on this occasion I can find very little sympathy for the owner [Mr Rward Mrad] of an Acton (London) premises – a shisha cafe that wasn’t even a recognised cafe!

The EHO hero’s strike again!

Yet again we see, trumpetted by the media, that another shisha emporium has been fined a total of £5,400 for allowing people to socialise and smoke in a building expressly designed for people to….. err….. socialise & smoke!

Moronic Bradford logic

Greetings to you all  and welcome to the land of lunacy-which seems to be starting up in Bradford – via one Councillor Andrew Thornton!

Cllr Thornton happily declares that 40% of Bradfords shisha bars have now been eradicated-thanks

Lancashire in Dreamland !

Lancashire have now decided that shisha bars pose a threat. Who too, well God only knows as only people that enjoy the pleasant past-time of smoking shisha … err… use shisha!

The ‘slimeballs’ have started!

     Here is a classic example of how to rid the streets of shisha outlets – public moaning! The ingredients are simple: some form of residents committee and a couple of non smoking, smoker hating Asians and a table to meet over. You do not need to be Einstein to see where this is going do you?
