Total cig ban for Brit boozersDepressing news from home of the health nazis aiming for a total ban of smoking in pubs.
Thank God my smoking days were before all this craven nonsense - a pint or five without a full pack of fags? Unthinkable. Hardly worth setting foot in the boozer in the first place.
Guardian article suggests that "a comprehensive ban could lead to the closure of about 10% of UK pubs ... The figure for Enterprise was likely to be between 200 and 300 closures, with properties sold for alternative use."
Serve 'em right, too, caving in like that to nanny government ways: A pub industry that won't go to bat for its regulars is probably better off out on the street seeking more suitable employment.
