Smoking ban on the horizon

The Beebs reports: “Health campaigners have welcomed a vote paving the way for a ban on smoking in all pubs, clubs and restaurants in England from the summer of 2007.

MPs voted on Tuesday by a margin of 200 votes to impose a ban on smoking in all enclosed spaces, despite months of wrangling over the issue.”

So… this means we’ll smell even more of curry at the end of the night, since smoke won’t cover the stench?

Nah, joking aside, that’s great news. Never thought a country like Britain would see the smoky haze of its pubs clear up, but it seems to be heading in that direction! Pub landlords, get your carpet washers and scrubbers out, because smoke won’t hide the fact that your beer-drenched carpet stinks now!

  1. Hurrah! It makes such a difference to enjoying a night out not to come home stinking and gasping.

    Send a copy to China… 1 on 5 person smoke… Mao was a big smoker, with 1/3 filter…Imagine one million lung cancers every year.
    Canada has banned smoking everywhere except outdoors (10 feet from the door). You should see them smoking at – 20 C.

  3. It’s happening in Scotland too on 26th March and I can’t wait!! 🙂 Yay for going home from the pub not stinking like an ashtray, and mornings after nights out free from sore throats! 🙂
