In an act straight out of Big Brother, Shergar tribute act, Jacinda Ardern and her batshit mental leftie CCP kowtowing govt are to effectively ban smoking in New Zealand. Anyone turning 18 in 2025 will be the first generation never to be able to buy cigarettes in NZ, older smokers will eventually die off and the country will be smoke free, that is the Nanny-in-Chiefs master plan.
I understand that smoking is an emotive issue, on here there will be smokers, ex-smokers like myself and those that cannot stand the habit. The real point of this cunting is what right do the government have to do this? Is this the Nanny State on steroids? This is a government already drunk on power following COVID lockdowns, mask wearing and vaccine mandates, what will they decide is best for people in the future and decide to ban? Fast food? Alcohol? Coffee?
Its worth noting that there are higher smoking rates among Maori and Pacific Islanders so increasing the cost year on year and face accusations of racism by persecuting a minority over a lifestyle choice was never going to be an option best to ban every cunt. At an average cost of NZ$33 (over 15 quid!) a pack, it makes Chancellor Itchy Ballsack’s recent hike seem pretty tame.
The big winners will really be those sneaky rinky dinkys and other black marketeers, flogging toxic weapons grade cigs. “Herro you! I do you velly good plice, 20 Mallboro onry 15 dorrar. Just rike old days”.
I understand the sentiment behind it but it just seems too tyrannical and too much government overreach, this is more North Korea than a supposed liberal western democracy like New Zealand and I don’t think this is the way to go about it. I think we may have a second French Revolution if they tried it with the frogs.
