Subject: RE: BS: Smoking in public to be banned (UK)
At one of the pubs which "Travelling Folk" used to sing in there was a notice on the wall which read something like:

When you smoke, the unpleasant waste product of your addiction gets into my lungs, hair, and clothes and also the upholstery and fabric of the room itself. I don't smoke myself, but I am partial to a few pints of beer. I have to admit that my habit also has a waste product. How would you like it if after a few jars, I was to pee all over your hair and clothes ?

This atitude of the landlord did seem to cut down the amount of fug quite considerably, without itseemed damaging his trade or the conviviality of the establishment. Unfortunately the pub has been under new management for some years now and is now a very smoky venue.
