THIS fuss about Little Bobby Thompson holding an unlit – yes unlit – cigarette is pure lunacy.

In a world where people are killing each other at will and destroying historic statues because they don’t believe in what they stood for, those who wish to ban Bobby are also destroying historic relics just because they disagree with what is portrayed.

Does it now mean any photo of someone smoking a fag has to be deleted?

Seeing the Little Waster remove a fag from his ancient Woodbine packet and not even light it isn’t going to make kids run out and buy some. It’s part of his act and to remove it or cover it up just shows how bloody stupid the world has gone.

I don’t smoke, never have, but the interfering do-gooders should get their priorities right.
