There comes a time where things need to be said. People in charge need to be pointed out. There have been things that no one, specifically Simon Chapman, wanted to talk about, like suggestions of law, regulations, and opinion to manipulate nicotine in this instance, but “don’t talk about it”.
Public health, is top secret stuff, evidently.
I would be irresponsible if I didn’t link Clive Bates covering the paper above here.
Less smoking in Australia comes with fines
The “discussion paper” (Note the other names in that) surely in part, brought this idiotic fine “penalty system” where posession of nicotine includes fines (and jail time) and cigarettes are legal:
Act Like An Expert
I’ve proudly called Simon Chapman a “chimpmanzee” among other obvious things here.
As an “expert” in tobacco control, it’s been pointed out by much smarter people than I am (in many instances) that Simon is wrong. You’d think, with his Ph.D. in social medicine that he would know better.
Christopher Snowden could go on here.
An assertion does not make you correct
This one is one of my favorite instances of assertion by Simon Chapman, and it still puzzles me as to why he would ever make such a
rookie professional mistake.
Remember, this statement is from a tobacco control EXPERT influencing public HEALTH and tobacco control. I’d expect such a person to know everything there is to know about nicotine.
If you happen to be an “expert”, act like one. Make it a goal to know more than common people like me, or Judith below.
Even in his retirement, he wants to assert control.
Name calling and… well, who’s above that…
I’ve thought of calling Simon Chapman a “pretentious prick”. A “man-child”. I’ve thought “what an arrogant pompous ass”, yet I’ve only given time and effort where I thought it may be most appropriate. Like now.
It isn’t like Chapman would ever call anyone attempting to engage him properly, (yes I did) trolls.
Let us clear the decks, call out the lies of those who have more power and funding than brains who are influencing idiotic policy with less than
desireable required credentials and force them to answer the questions publicly.
I don’t want to waste any more of our time.
You can see Senator Leyonhjelm who has balls, discussing Simon Chapman below.
“…Department of Health was so taken aback by Simon Chapman’s false statements that they felt the need to go on the record and clear things up”
“Ill-informed, willfully ignorant and downright malicious”
“Snake oil salesman come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes they take the guise of an emeritus professor of sociology” ~ Senator Leyonhjelm
Don’t spread this around, Simon is talking about litigation.
Spell my name right, Simon.
As a footnote, the last time I wrote about my pal Simon, he graciously reviewed my inane drivel on Twitter. I aspire to do the same again. Seriously.
I’m sure there’ll be more:
