How "old wives tales" become government policy

Hat Tip to the Freedom To Choose blog via uber-bloggers Dick Puddlecote and LegIron on how an unscientific report consisting of a phonecall to 1000 bovine idiots whether they thought people who are smokers can infect people simply by standing next to them. Note, not actually smoking, but "3rd hand smoke".

The report concluded from the responses of the non-thinkers that yes indeedy, babies and the sick will die of cancer by simply standing next to a smoker.

And behold, via the equally lobotomised media, it became policy and now smokers are not permitted to enter the Royal Oldham Hospital in Manchester, simply because they choose to smoke. Note: not smoking, but have been or are smokers.

Another example of where no scientific proof will get in the way of a predetermined decision by the the Wretched.

Wake up Neo...(knock knock)
