In which I agree with Cllr Greenwood...


The nannying fussbuckets have been badgering at the West Yorkshire Pension Fund:

Health campaigners have criticised West Yorkshire Pension Fund after research found it has £125 million invested in the tobacco industry.

Apparently this is unethical because these health campaigners don't approve of the investment. However, Cllr Greenwood, as Chairman of the Fund responded correctly:

“Decisions should be taken entirely on commercial grounds.” 

Hallelujah! Perhaps the anti-smoking fanatics will go away now (but somehow I doubt it)
