The more that musician Joe Jackson learns about the crazy and hateful antismoking movement the more he feels the urge to light up.

Still pretty moderate compared to some, but that’s my choice: MY perception of what’s right for me – not some health minister’s, and certainly not some hack from the likes of ASH, handsomely paid by pharmaceutical companies to stigmatise me to the point of, in effect, calling me a murderer.’
