Training The Obnoxious Little Arseholes Of The Future…

Stickers designed by Brighton children to promote a ban on smoking in cars when they are present are being printed by the council to appear on bumpers around town.

They were created for a contest run by the city council, fire service and NHS and will be distributed in their thousands to pupils who took part.

Does this get classed as art?

Special assemblies were held in each school about the new law and the fire service visited each school with a fire engine.

Is that a regular thing, do you suppose? An assembly for new legislation?

They must be never out of the assembly hall!

Many of the children’s designs featured drawings of cars with messages about the new law, at least one with images of a green-faced child saying ‘Stop!’ while the driver chugs on a cigarette.

Another features pictures of children snuggled up in bed or in a cot with the question, ‘Why should we choke on your smoke?’.

Fine. Walk to school in future!

A spokesman for Brighton and Hove City Council’s public health team said: “The ban on smoking in cars with children present means ‘one less space to smoke, one more reason to give up smoking.

Dear god, but I loathe these people.

    Lung cancers have increased whilst smoking has decreased. But the increase broadly maps the mass adoption of diesel cars.
    Diesel has slightly lower emissions of CO2 per mile, which is why the “green” lobby pushed for them to “save the planet”. The unforeseen and unfortunate consequences of this misguided policy is rising lung cancer rates and various associated respiratory diseases, especially for young children who have less robust immune systems.
    In fact, the worst exposure is to the very young in pushchairs, breathing in fumes where they are concentrated near the ground beside main roads.
    In conclusion, these willing idiots are, as PJH points out (above) exposing children to much worse air conditions than in smoky cars.

    It was either The Daily Mash or Newsbiscuit that did a story headed “Children of smokers delighted with their new walking boots”. On the more serious side, these people really are deeply unpleasant. I am writing as a non smoker who doesn’t particularly like being in a confined space with someone who is smoking. This was quite common in years gone by and though it might have been a bit of a pain I seem to have survived it.

    There was no need to even go past the word Brighton.
