In the topsy-turvy world of public health, quoting someone\’s exact words constitutes \”smearing\”, apparently. Glibly describing someone as a \’lapdog apologist for corporate interests\’, on the other hand, is perfectly reasonable. Go figure.
Quite apart from being an arrogant sneering cow she\’s also woefully misinformed on the British Constitution. Manifesto policies are not meant to be unopposed. Rather, at Westminster, the House of Lords agrees not to oppose manifesto policies that pass the Commons.
That\’s got bugger all to do with the rest of us opposing an idiocy like minimum pricing.
