The only 'anti-social' part of smoking is the fact that the new laws force the poor sods to go outside and stand in the rain, just when you were talking to them.
Let smokers smoke? Not so, according to the 'lady' here, Ms. Jane DeVille-Almond. She is apparently a Senior Nurse.
Nursing: that's a vocation dedicated to caring for and healing everybody, regardless of their circumstances, isn't it? Er.. no.
The recording below is of this Angel of Healthcare, outlining her views on smokers, on a radio phone-in.
Just in case you can't play it back, the transcript goes:
Nurse Gladys Emmanuel: "I mean, I'll just tell you a very short story. Recently, I had one guy who'd had one heart operation and he continued to smoke and he went in and had a second operation which I actually think should not have been allowed. Because he hadn't made a commitment to his own health, and was just relying on surgeons and people .."
Nicey The DJ: "Should he have paid for it?"
Nurse Gladys Emmanuel: "He should've paid for it and ..."
Nicey The DJ: "But that would have cost thousands and thousands of pounds. How can you expect an ordinary person to pay that sort of money?"
Nurse Gladys Emmanuel: "Well then you ... then I'm afraid .. if he can't commit .. if you're gonna have an operation .. you know .. it's a bit like if people ... you know ..."
Nicey The DJ: "Then what? If he can't afford it, what?"
Nurse Gladys Emmanuel: "Well then, they just have to die."
Well, well. Isn't amazing how the Interwebs lets us unearth these evil bitches? Jan Moir yesterday, Nurse Gladys Emmanuel - sorry, Jane DeVille-Almond - today.
What the flying fuck has it got to so with you, Nursey? Who promoted you from bedpans to moral arbiter? Are you minding the shop for God, or something?
For fucks' sake: how the hell did you get to be a fucking nurse? Are you actually making decisions like this on the ward? If CF fell down the stairs pissed, would you leave his arm broken as a valuable lesson? You probably fucking would.
Smokers, if you find yourself in hospital, and you wake up to find that face leering over you, be afraid. Be very afraid.
With 'carers' like this witch, who needs euthenasia?
Hat-tip Captain Ranty-Freeman On The Land, who's just as furious.
