Australia Gets Award For Hating Its Citizens

Reported here at the Australian Medical Association's website, ASH Australia and their merry band of hating denormalisers have awarded their government a Global Leadership Award.  Whoopee!
The Award – presented by the AMA, the Australian Council on Smoking and Health (ACOSH), and Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) Australia – was accepted on behalf of the Government by Health Minister, Tanya Plibersek, at the AMA National Conference in Melbourne.

AMA President, Dr Steve Hambleton, said the Australian Government won the Global Leadership Award for leading international action on tobacco over the past year.

“Australia is setting an example for the rest of the world to follow in the ongoing battle to stop people smoking and destroying their health, and is not afraid to take on Big Tobacco in the process,” Dr Hambleton said.
Nice going, Australia. You suck.
