Smoking - Why the Demonisation of Smokers?

Smoking - Why the Demonisation of Smokers?

By Ross (The Hammer) Hemsworth

SMOKING - Right? Wrong? Free choice?

In the UK in recent years, smokers have been banned from smoking in public places, and pay enormous amounts of tax on their purchases. Now they are facing display bans in shops and plain white packaging on the products. In this show, the Hammer talks to critic Chris Snowdon who argues that the government and media statistics are wrong.

Meanwhile ASH, an organisation campaigning for people to stop smoking, argue that health issues alone should be enough to force people to quite smoking.

Should people have the right to weigh up the health issues and make a free-will decision on whether or not to smoke, or is this another case of the `nanny-state` telling us all what to do?


Ross `The Hammer` Hemsworth has his own TV chat show in England, together with a global radio show and was one of the pioneers of online broadcasting setting up his first Internet radio station back in 2004. He has been in the broadcasting business for many years and has appeared in many popular TV shows including Ghost Detectives, Now THAT`S Weird and Haunted Halloween Live, and was BBC trained for radio.

Hammer says he has worked in almost every radio slot except breakfast `cause that`s just too damn early!" He recently hit the top spot in the TOP 5 SUPERJOCKS on American radio industry website and that`s not bad for a Brit! He has a big following in the USA and Canada through his global shows, plus a big social network following so in 2012, he wants to take America by storm and has been looking to relocate to the States to find a permanent home for his show.

So watch out folks - you`re about to be hit by The Hammer!!
