Yay smoking banned in pubs in the UK!


It's about time, although I don't go to pubs often because they're boring. But when I do atleast I know I wont be surrounded by constant smoke. emoticon

Re: Yay smoking banned in pubs in the UK!


 I'm really wondering how strictly that will be enforced. It just seems like one of those laws that are officially on the books but that nobody really pays attention to in the long run.

Well they think it'll be how it was in Ireland. Everyone just went along with it and they had no trouble, because they knew it was against the law now. It may take some people getting used to, but I think its good that they've finally got a complete ban instead of a "partial ban", which was stupid anyway.

They showed some smokers on TV complaining, saying "Smokers would be at home more smoking indoors rather than being in the pub" - like thats supposed to be worse? If they care about their families and the people they live with, they should just quit or smoke outside. Stupid idiots.

Horray, yeah I actualy sat and watched the votes, it was actualy just a vote on England, Scottland and NI have already banned it, and Wales is expected to have a vote soon.

It doesn't come into play until Summer 2007, so its awhile yet.

Wow I didn't think something like that would be so strictly enforced. I can bet if a law like that was passed over here not many would pay attention to it after a while.

Some pubs here in Ireland let the locals have the odd one. If they are caught theres a big fine tho so most of em dont chance it.

The smoking ban is great tho even most smokers think so cos you can breath properly, Theres no smell of smoke off you, and theres no smoke to cut the eyes out of you.

the smoking ban isnt that bad a thing over here, it let to many a beer garden openin up out d back of pubs, and theres way more fun and messing to be had out there. still as warm as inside the pub cos theres heaters outside.
