And what about children? If the government is sincere about protecting those most vulnerable from second hand smoke, then why isn\’t a ban on smoking in all households containing children, at least being considered?
Ultimately, the ban enacted on July 1 should not be the end of the legislative process but the beginning. The months and years to come should witness a wealth of legislation enacted by the government leading towards one ultimate goal: the abolition of smoking, whether public or private, throughout the land, forever.
Could we please make sure that this Chris Hallam is jeered and mocked wherever he goes? What a disgusting little shit he is.
It\’s not just the impossibility of a ban, the creation of black markets, the loss of billions a year in revenue, the increased costs to the health and pension systems. It\’s the perfect illiberality of the proposal. That people should not be allowed to do as they wish simply because he doesn\’t want them to.
