It won't shock anyone much that the BBC is happy to give airtime to some dreary little fraud solely because he peddles his crooked snake-oil under the WHO banner. Such was a piece from this evening's news when a fake-scientist claimed the ban on indoor use of e-cigarettes was justified because they 'raised the level of nicotine in the atmosphere'. As this chiselling little crook is himself undoubtedly responsible for 'raising the level of CO2 in the atmosphere' he should probably go off and tie an airtight plastic bag around his head and spare us any more guff.
How anyone can be fooled by the riverboat con-tricks of these spurious little men is beyond me - it's pointless demonstrating that nicotine as we encounter it is a biologically harmless alkaloid in the same class as caffeine, that the increase from an e-cigarette over the background level in the air is statistically insignificant or that these fraudsters have made their intentions clear by recently changing their aims from 'smoke free' to 'tobacco free' - two very different objectives. Like the anthropomorphic-originated climate change liars and fraudsters, they peddle lies, distortions, omissions and misrepresentations under the banner of the UN.
A curse on the lot of 'em.
