Ireland's most cantankerous auld fella is right as usual:
I have lost all respect for [scientists] now. In particular those in the medical field who seem to be under the apprehension that because they are a Doctor [or a Mister], that their words and opinions are like gold-dust, for us mere mortals to read without question but with a sense of awe and wonder.
Leading Irish consultant compares e-cigs to methadone
What the blind fuck is a "leading" surgeon anyway? This fucking idiot is certainly leading the field when it comes to pure arse dribble but apart from that I would rank him amongst the egotistical wankers of this world. And you can take that as gospel, as it is written by a "Leading" Irish Blogger. Hah!
[Just as an aside - he claims that "It is thought the liquid nicotine or e-liquid contained in the e-cigarettes is absorbed much quicker than nicotine in tobacco and can poison a person by touch alone" but I bet the little cunt is quick enough to recommend nicotine patches?]
I won't bother ripping his statements apart because anyone with more than two brain cells to rub together can see that his pronouncements are a pile of shite. Mind you that won't stop the Twitterati screaming "OMG! I must avoid e-cigs at all costs because the leading consultant said so", but then they are brain-dead anyway.
