PM Amal bans smoking

It is 2025 - Our glorious prime minister, Amal, has changed the law to make smoking illegal - she claims it is evil and deadly and has no place in civilised society.

What do you think? should it be banned or is it an infrinegment of individual rights to ban it?
Please state your reasons to back up your argument.

Consider this also - might she decide to ban motorvehicles and sunbathing for the same reason?

Think about it.....

I think that that is a great idea and that someone should have done it by now. I think that because my mum used to smoke it she started to cough quite a lot. I was really worried about her because I'd seen the ads on tv about people dying because of them smoking. I told her about my worries and she decided to quit. It was really hard for her and I love her for quiting, but the thing is she still smokes at parties and my dad doesn't know about it. I found out about it by finding them in her bag. But that's why I would vote for amal.

I don't care if sunbathing and motorvehiciles are banned either, because sunbathing is bad for your skin and cars and stuff are bad for the enviroment and make lazy, instead of getting you up and going on a bike.

hi hi i think smoking being banned is FANTASTIC bcuz it causes lung cancer and innocent people get sick bcuz of second hand smoke!!

mayb sunbathing shoudn't b banned if the sunbathers wear a henvy coat of sunscreen but i do understand banning motorvehicles because of pollution and things

sorry to hear that hi, good luck!!

Hi i dont think we should ban smoking (i dont think its good to smoke though) because if you do you would have to ban everything else that can harm peoples health like. I also think it is hard to stop smoking because my dad smokes and hes been smoking since he was 14 and he has tryed lots of times to stop. But luckly hes trying to give up again!!!!
YAY GO DAD !!!!!

Mr Woody said...

did u spot my typo?
tonks came up with some really smart ideas reaging the banning thing - she extrapolated that it wasn't fair to ban personal transportation by motorvehicle when we could just invent cleaner fuels. afterall, private motor vehicles give us freedom, flexibility, safety [from other people - for example, four guys tried to mug me on a train once in london], and even recreation - like allowing us to explore off the beaten track where buses and trains don't go or stop.
as for smokers - we must be fair - many smokers of our parents generation were unaware of the perils when they started and it is a highly addictive substance which is hard to give up.
well done for thinking and making posts.

I say down with smoking, however I feel that the car thing should only be banned if we down find a cheaper, cleaner fuel. While I was in Christchurch my Dad was reading a fiction book where atomic/nuclear power was harnessed at a level where there was no change of a plant exploding or something.

bloggman_14 said...

I think that amal did the right thing i mean it does do alo of damage to urself and the second hand smoke can b deadly but i agree wit u mr woody that its highly adictive (ive never tried it but i have cousins who have).

Bloggman_14 =P

Tonks said...

I am loving you guys comments!!!!
I really do hope 1 day i can become P.M. of N.Z. and stop deaths of inoccent people. The goverment only let people smoke because of the tax there geting. Greedy1 dont u think?

Hey Jess maybe we could have workshops to get people to stop smoking.

signed
Your P.M.

ash said...

hi again

i think smoking shoulld b banned but i agree that it is very hard to quit because my auntie smokes and she is trying to give up but finds it very hard




i think that cars and things shouldnt b banned because we have to hav some way to travel long distances although i think that motor bikes should b banned because they r a death trap on weals cause its hader to c and stuff like that

Camman said...

Hey Everyone!! I just found out that the government has banned ownership of mobile phones for all NZers under 16 from the 1st of May!!! What do you guys think about this? I think it's stupid!!

Greenie said...

U CAN'T BAN SMOKIN!!! WAT WILL HAPPEN TO ME AND MY COMPANY!!! WE'LL BE OUT OF BUSINESS!!!! HELP!!

Greenie said...

Oh, and y sunbathe wen u can get all those fake tanners.

Greenie said...

Btw, Woody, I hav just been reminded by Phantom dat I was bein a bit too obvious. So... if u let slip to ur bunch of thick peeps hu I am, I will personally.........................hire sum1 to kill u!!!! (I don't do my own 'dirty work')

Mr Woody said...

which one of the rm 11 scoundrels would you hire... btw - other teachers read this so don't be too silly - i need to use what is written here as evidence of children's engagement and interaction within an "e-learning" environment. you are guinea piglets, so to speak. cat will be impressed... hang on - no she won't.
;>)
take care all of you. you are all groovers.

catgirl said...

I think that it's a good idea to ban smoking, becoz it does wreck your lungs and can give you cancer. Also, I can't see what's so gr8 about it. All it does to u is kill u.
But sunbathing (though it burns u) is okay if you don't do it for too long, and u neede cars if you're going to Wellington from Hamilton or something. But it's true that if u can get it, public transport is a gr8mand cheaper way to get around. Have NE of u considered designing a vehicle that doesn't consume too much fuel, or a way to smoke that is safe and healthy to the smokers and other people around?

Adios amigos-gatos RULE!

catgirl said...

Soory-I put an 'E' on the end of 'need'.

I reckon they shouldn't ban smoking but should let you throw tomatoes and pour water and rob people who do and break their windows with rugby balls. Alternatively we could push them off cliffs. Who is Ernesto
