Smoking bans, again

Looks like the Scottish Executive isn’t the only group of politicians acting like complete and utter bastards over smoking:

the Department of Health is considering a Westminster council request that it should be allowed to create smoking “exclusion zones” outside bars, restaurants, clubs or workplaces so those caught smoking there could be punished.

I don’t care. Still off the fags. ;-D

Actually I think they’re all bastards.

(First ever post from a mac. It’s a very odd (but very pretty) place to be)

Yeah! Cool and edgy. That’s me. Oh yes.

Well, as the voice of an ex-smoker (and we all know there’s none so pure as the purified), I must say that walking through the obligatory crowd of smokers loitering out the front of any building is really quite revolting. And the mess you filthy smokers make with your fag ends on the ground which stick to my stilettoe heels is really quite inconsiderate too. Not to mention the amount of times I have had a hole burned in my clothing from an over-enthusiastic gesticulating smoker (once).

Switzerland is only just starting to catch up with the rest of the world on their smoking bans, you can still smoke nearly everywhere here (And they are so tolerant of what you’re smoking too).

Come on, give up the fags and enjoy the fresh air!!!

I noticed that in Interlaken last month.

Yes it is, and they were put there by anti-smoking legislation.

Anyone seen today’s Scottish Sun? Front page says the Exec wants to ban stilettos. Bad news for fashionistas and foot fetishists, that (if it’s true – it’s in the Sun, after all).
