A Mystery.......

We are currently being bombarded with restrictions this and restrictions that.

The worst at the moment is the debate about smoking.

The UK Gov want to ban smoking in Public places.
Why? Because people complain.
Who loses out? The Pubs? No, The Gov. Why? They put over £3.00 of tax per packet of 20 cigs. Stopping people from smoking is going to reduce the amount the Gov claim.

I think the Gov need to think about what they are trying to do. If they get less tax in from cigs, how will they get more of our money? Fuel. Now that is another good debate.

Let me know our views.

I would refer you to my Post on the same subject.
As I said there, I do not smoke around people eating.
I dont want to smoke on a bus, a train or a plane. I
remember smoking compartments on trains... they were
But... I dont want to be treated as a second class
citizen...I dont want a segregated smokers area in a bar.
Smokers should be considerate, but non smokers should
respect my freedom to smoke.
and, yes I donate a lot of tax to the govt. They are not
trying to deter me from smoking, they want my money... do not
be fooled...
Bring back the Public Bar... No kids in bars... they are
worse than smoke....
