Goff Asleep, Gower Illiterate

If I had any doubt Filk Off is desperate for name recognition it was dispelled by this piece of Alice In Wonderland nonsense. Just have a look at the headline.

Making cold pills prescription better than ban - Goff

Now ask yourself what is the difference between banning OVER THE COUNTER sales (as John Key proposes) and 'making cold pills prescription' as the little jerk from Labour proposes?

Is Patrick Gower so desperate for something to report that he doesn't read a press release before he puts his stupid name to it?

Will The Herald print every word of inane gibberish which flows from the mouths of Labour?

Goofy Goff has lost the plot, he is the classic Liarbour puppet lost in the real world without Aunty Helen pulling his strings. Labour are cold and in self destruction mode. I wish all the misfits would get a very bad doze of the swine flu. Fuck em all.

The best thing to do is make a prison sentence mandatory for psuedo buyers, manufacturers & pushers. 20 years for the first offence should cover it.
Users should get 5 years. That is the inc etive we need, not a ban like JK is possibly looking at.

It's not a ban. It's a restriction to scrip only.

No, Goff isn't completely on the wrong track here.

Johnboy himself said he will ask his new chief science adviser Prof Peter Gluckman, is to investigate "whether it is possible for New Zealand to eliminate pseudoephedrine in the making of cold and flu tablets".

He does not say anything about restricting it only to a prescription-only medicine.

"Mr Key said he understood pseudoephedrine was banned in some American states, and he wanted to know if that would work here."

Don't listen to the anti-drug lobby... the "substitute" Phenylephrine is far less effective (In fact some studies have shown it to be no more effective as a decongestant than a placebo!)

dead right Chemist P. and you too Dave - phenlyephrine is fucking useless. chicken noodle soup and a few DVDs are the way to go...

Hot whiskey used to be the palliative. Kept many a Scotsman alive.
Seriously, just keep fit, don't live in constantly heated buldings and take good amounts of suuplementary vitamins. No colds.

The difference is (which you would know if you'd been paying attention)that on Monday the PM was talking about removing medications with pseudoephedrine from the supply chain in their entirety.

ie no pills at all - not even by prescription.

What's being talked about now is to make such medications available by prescription only - thus they'd still be in the supply chain.

The PM's now saying this option is in the mix for consideration.

Great so all those Drs who are bullied into granting Sickness Beneficiaries will be bullied into writing scrips for pills....
The gangs use anyone and everyone to go into chemists all over NZ to get psuedo.They will just get them to go to the Dr first.
If Goff doesnt realise this then he really is a fuck wit

Whiskey, lemon and honey drinks, Colloidal silver and Vit C. Much better than over the counter chemicals which only mask symptoms.

After you pay to go see the doctor and then pay for your cold tablets, it probably works out cheaper to go and buy some P and then reverse engineer it back into Sudafed in your kitchen.

'What is the difference between OTC and prescription pseudoephedrine'

About $25-45

"Hot whiskey used to be the palliative. Kept many a Scotsman alive."

In all seriousness, the best decongestant is to play the bagpipes for 10 minutes! It really clears out the passages. Just don't share your pipes with anyone...
