Not only that people who smoke, harms not only himself. Passive smoking, when a pair of cigarette smoke inhaled by smokers not even be a very harmful. I think that is very correct and vzveshannoe decision. Especially in bars and and restaurants. Because of the habits of one affects many.

Perhaps they could also do a study on discarded gum and fast food packaging. Seems to a lot of those (and they’re not prohibited indoors).

Take away the hysteria, and the smoking ban, is just another manifistation of the nanny state.True there are people who are repulsed by cigarette smoke, so the decisions should be left to the individual establishments and members.

Trouble is that would have to have local decisions, and our decisions are now made many miles away from the places they are enacted.

If there was not a demand for smoking in bars and restaurants they would close them down and go completely non smoking. With regards to drugs, is not alcohol a drug, caffine too? Do you drink Margaret or just have a soft drink? I can only assume you are a hypocrite. How many people have smoked 8 cigarettes and felt the need to go and hit someone, unlike beer, whereby drinking 8 pints/pots just might do the trick? Also is it not the definition fascism imposing by law and deed your value system on others? “Pandering” to smokers, must democrats would agree, is far preferable to a pencil moustache, swastika and a desire to invade Poland. Hitler was the first man to ban smoking in public places in 1942.

Succinct and true. The perpetrators of these scams rely on the naivety and fanaticism of the ‘Useful Stupid’ to line their pockets. Unfortunately, these fools vastly outnumber those of us who have not succumbed to the relentless brain washing……..

But until that time comes the zealots will carry on calling for ever more restrictions, but this will be done piecemeal, they can’t have their funding/pay drying up, when the only restriction left is to call for tobacco to made illegal then they’ll call a halt, no goverment in their right mind will lose the lucrative revenue raised from tobacco. But watch out once they’ve finished with smokers they’ll be going after another section of society. They’re parasites.

As to Climate Change/Global Warming, just more propaganda and a money making exercise. Like the Smoking Ban Experiment, the main instigator of this, Al Gore, will also be exposed for the charlatan he is.

Someone posted that trees were cut down for tobacco growing, haha, how ill-informed, I take it you know nothing about them cutting them down to save the planet then, which is exactly what they’re doing, to grow palm oil for Biofuel, supposedly to lessen our carbon footprint, and so many companies have now sprung up that buy your carbon footprint, haha. Can someone please explain what a carbon footprint is? Oh how many have noticed that since we’re not all being burnt to a crisp by GW they’re quietly dropping GW in favour of climate change. Shysters the lot of them.

Passive Smoke & Global Warming/Climate Change will go down in history as the two biggest money making scams of all time.

Truth, and the beauty of it, is that you can’t erase it, it will always emerge.
