A modest proposal

. . . concerning the nation’s health.

I’ve been away for some days in Devon. I’ve been staying in non-smoking households, and the drastic reduction in my cigarette ration has affected my normal body rhythm (of ingestion, digestion, excretion) and left me feeling gummed up and bloated. To combat the national obesity problem, the government might consider encouraging more people to smoke.
