Is the BMA the new NUM?

Any film which shows smoking in a positive light should go up one classification, from a 12 to a 15 age certificate, Dr Vivienne Nathanson, head of the BMA science and ethics said, because of the huge impact imagery has on children taking up the habit.

Films like Pulp Fiction show Uma Thurman smoking and in the US blockbuster Independence Day every time Will Smith kills an alien he lights up a cigar, Dr Nathanson said.
Just as well our children are completely immune to the impact of imagery glamourising violence, then. And since when was Pulp Fiction licenced as a 12?

The BMA have been holding the country to ransom from the beggining of the NHS where they were paid off.
I think the Conservative Party are wrong to protect them and wrong on Poly clinics .

Insufferable arrogant bastards is my diagnosis
