"Real men get cancer" (and so do the people sitting next to them).

Oyright prohibition wouldn't work, it never does. Stopping it in pub where food is on sale seems a perfectly reasonable thing to do. Nobody is saying people shouldn't smoke tobacco where it doesn't get in the face of other people. I wish they'd bring in a comparable policy on cannabis.

Why it's supposed to take four years to introduce this minor reform seems a bit hard to understand. It didn't take Ireland anything like that, and it won't take Scotalnd that long either. The three toed sloth should be made the national emblem for England...
