    The UK gov is now passing new smoking laws.

    Part of this is a ban or smoking in goverment offices.
    They hope to bring this in by 2006.

    I don't get it, if they gonna do it why not just say "Effective of 2morrow"
    Whats the difference?

    And while I'm on the subject, a hypotheitical question.

    What effect do you think a total out and out ban on smoking bring to the uk?

    I guess part of the reason is to give businesses a chance to adapt to new rules and to educate the general public of the new law.

    I don't think many laws get passed overnight, there is always a "honeymoon" period.

    What effect will it bring the UK? Empty pubs, but busy beer gardens.

    @Dan .... No 2006 they just said on the news

    @Cheese.... Actually many interviews and surveys have suggested more trade.
    And when I said ban, I meant a total ban on smoking anywhere. Period! like prohibition type thing.

    @Dave....Why am I a redneck?

    I'm interested in how Witherspoons handles this proposed ban.

    I reckon they'll bring it in early and as an added bonus I reckon they won't let you smoke outside.

    Remember this is the chain of pubs that won't play music in their bars, makes you take off your cap (or damn fine hat) and has banned swearing...

    Most publicans fear a drop in custom. I reckon it'll drop and then raise back up to where it was before or slightly lower.

    Thats not what I said, I said the ones that have already ban smoking have been reporting a rise in trade.
    I guess there are many people who wont go to a pub to eat or whatever cos of smoking. wheras most the regulars will still go pub and just either not smoke or smoke outside.

    This is possibly the best way to stop people smoking, it will ween some people off because they wont be arsed to go for a smoke.
    Could be a good thing, plus having now found out the damage pasive smoking does then I think it's fair.
    A break up of pubs that do and pubs that don't allow smoking would be best
