    Fag Wars – Interesting News From Austria…

    No, before the infinitesimally small number of gaystapo creeps who read this blog start mincing angrily…

    …this is NOT about the disgraceful decision to impose homo-weddings on Austria, the high court there disregarding democratic norms in much the same way as the irresponsible US Supreme Court did two years ago.



    What I’m talking about are the glad tidings from Austria’s patriot party this week that a planned ban on smoking in all bars and restaurants due to come into force in mid-2018 will be scrapped.

    FPÖ  leader Strache

     The Freedom Party’s Heinz-Christian Strache claimed credit for negotiating this, as part of the talks currently underway with  Sebastian Kurz’s ÖVP.

    “I am proud of this excellent solution in the interests of non-smokers, smokers and restaurant owners,” said Strache.



    “The freedom to choose lives on. The existence of restaurants (particularly small ones) has been secured. Thousands of threatened jobs have been saved!”  


    This is excellent news which puts to shame the small republic’s EUSSR neighbours, where governments have collaborated slavishly with health-fascists…



    …to wage a witch-hunt against smokers, repeatedly refusing to adopt the fair-play solution now agreed in Vienna..

    Of course non-smokers should have areas set aside for them to dine away from smoke which they find disagreeable.

    But SO should smokers TOO have a decently appointed room for them to enjoy their meal with that immensely satisfying post-prandial cigarette.

      You succeed in your favorite hobby of offending the ‘gays’ and then get on with presenting the reasonable case for fair play for smokers.
      It’s only a pity you did not draw any comparisons between the fuss the ‘health fascists’ make about all the possible dangers to our bodies from cigarette-smoking and the lack of fuss they make about the health hazards that homo-sex incurs.
      But as you say, nice to see Austrian smokers will not be hounded!

    Smokers Nabbed in Bali – But How About Us Drinkers! 

     Ngurah Rai International Airport 3 Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport


    Big news on that Bali website, a raid on smokers in the airport. http://www.balidiscovery.com.

    If you expect me to deplore the action targetting my fellow tobacco-fans, stroll on. Ngurah Rai has greatly improved its smoking area, from a dank, densely-packed, little overgrown cupboard to a nice open-air place.

    And civilised smokers don’t complain ( and shouldn’t transgress) when civilised facilities are available – I only wish that new Jakarta Terminal would be as considerate!

    But how about drinkers?



    Ever since that intolerant edict was promulgated, which bans minimarts across the archipelago from selling a few bottles or cans of beer to honest citizens on a hot day (and we’re having very hot days in Jakarta at the moment – again, no complaints, I love hot weather but one does get a thirst!) there has been talk of Bali getting a special dispensation.

    Bingung Buaaanget! – Gimana Minum Bir Di Bali? 

    This is partly because of the tourist issue, but also, surely, because creeping shariah is hard to justify when the great majority of Balinese are Hindus. I haven’t been to Bali recently, so I don’t know how that’s working out. 

    Prohibition Indonesia – Bali Exempt…Sort Of! 

    Any sectarian legislation is a blot on Indonesia’s reputation, but nevertheless, an even more intolerant Islamist law is being pushed through parliament at the moment, which apparently  provides for two years imprisonment for what I’m doing now, having a drink in my own front yard! 

    No More Drink? Jakarta on Brink of Prohibition 



    I enjoy a drink, and a smoke, and by doing so, I don’t bother anyone else. Every Indonesian should have the same right to personal free choice in these matters. Even smokers are given space to relax and enjoy their pastime on the terraces of cafes, in other public places, and of course on their own property.

    So why not drinkers? .
