    It's a good thing and prevents smokers forcing their habit on members of the public and staff doing their job. Their choice to live is more important than another person's right to slowly commit suicide.

    Surely death by passive smoking is murder not suicide.

    I was talking about the smoker commiting suicide. Sorry if I didn't write that very well.

    I think we'll let the listeners pass judgement on your poor manners.

    Oh and my obvious class in the face of extreme provocation.

    A super rod but I'll bite.

    There's no pub in Scotland that forces it's patrons to smoke. If you want to protect your staff and offer clean air to your customers, just make it a non-smoking pub. Problem solved.

    The whole thing will be fun to watch tho, knowing we're gonna be going through it in England pretty soon.

    There already were some non-smoking pubs, restaurants. This is more a statement from our Executive with regard to the health of the nation and people being able to go wherever they want without others forcing poison into their lungs.

    No-one was being forced to go to smokey pubs. If you don't want to smell smoke, go to a non-smoking bar.

    As an aside, what will happens in nightclubs etc? I used to go clubbing for 5-6 hours at a time, and I can't see ticketed events just letting people in and out to smoke all the time.
