Depp, Dogs and Anti-Smoking Intolerance!

Like most people, inside or outside Australia, I relished Barnaby Joyce’s triumph over the presumptions of Mr.Johnny Depp and his other half. Their contrition, real or otherwise, for their dogs’ illicit entry to Oz, made for rivetting viewing.
Besides, I have always been pro-Barnaby since that ABC red twerp Trioli showed typical and grotesque left-bias when he was on her programme.

Virginia Trioli is a puffed up, tired old TV news hack. Only the ABC could possibly give her any work —at our expense, of course.

But now I’ve shifted to the side of Mr. Depp, subjected to further harassment because he was seen engaging in that most outrageously offensive conduct…
…smoking in the open air.
Not in his pirate role, but on the balcony of Southport Magistrates Court…
So what’s all the fuss about?
A balcony is a perfect place to light up, outdoors, sequestered from sensitive souls within – why should the health nazis get into a lather?
Australians have always prided themselves on their sturdy individualism and never seemed to like being pushed around.
But last time I was there, even the open spaces outside the malls had largely been colonised by anti-smoking whiners…
…little silly signs posted saying how many meters from a door-way you were allowed to light up.
As bad as the USA jackbootery in the sign pictured.
Sad to see liberties stubbed out!
