11 Days to Freedom

On July 1 it becomes possible to go into a pub and enjoy a beer without inconsiderate arse-holes blowing smoke in your face. Recently we have heard whinging from Christopher Hitchens and David Hockney about the ban. The argument is simple. If I drink too much beer that has no effect on you. But if I smoke in your vicinity it clearly does have an effect. "Smoking" and "no smoking" areas don't work (not in a pub; in sealed railway carriages maybe). It is a filthy disgusting habit and the people who do it for the most part plainly have absolutely no consideration for other people whatever. July 1 is freedom day. Rejoice!
