I am often confused as to the relevance of the Smoking ban closing pubs? Wetherspoons opens more and more pubs which by the way serve food. I work in London and the ony pubs which have gone to the wall, were really bad ones, in which food was a bag of crisps and you and your clothes stinking of cigarette smoke. Then again smokers seem to think a ban is against their human rights but they never think about the majority who do not smoke.
On the theme, interesting that asthma rates have dropped dramatically due to people not smoking in confined spaces where there are children. Still smokers will always feel marginalised but the remedy is your ow hands so to speak

I smoke. I wish they would shut down all cigarette factories. I don't drink. I wish they would put the shortfall in tax onto alchol. My, and society's, problems solved in one fell swoop. Bring it on!
