Excellent piece on cigarettes and their image (which references Klein's Cigarettes are sublime ukuk which you should read if you haven't already done so as it is excellent)

What a crock

<P>Bloody hell. You pseudo-intellectual jumper-wearing lefto pillock. That, and the "British Columnist" nonsense it linked to were both unnecessarily intellectualising something which is a serious public health problem.</P> <P>Design, chic, whatever. Pig's arse it is. Crock of shite. Period.</P> <P>And no, this isn't trendy angst, this is just almightily pissed off that writing such drivel earns people sufficient calories to exist. Why cant't these wasters get a real job? Or at least pretend to...</P>


George Orwell did a good essay on smoking, although I think it was largely pro-smoking.


Jim, you're just not old enough to understand.


Oh, and I am not a pseudo-intellectual - I *am* an intellectual. But I do wear jumpers when it is cold, that is true.
