Smoking Ban Real Estate Bollocks!

It slowly dawned on me today there's new smoking ban pub etiquette emerging. Once upon a time in a busy boozer if someone walked out of the door it was game over, all the real estate they sat on and occupied was up for grabs. Now it seems it's not so simple, a couple of times now i've parked myself on their seat only to have them come back 10 min's later with protestations of 'only going outside for a fag'. Markmiwordz the first tabloid 'stolen seat fag rage' incident is imminenet.

How do you do… FAGS

"We want to help you"

What? If vilifying large groups of society for no reason, ostracising them to the cold climate, bombarding them with nightmarish obscene imagery of cancerous lungs and diseases while already threatening them with death, illness and deformed babies and, AND charging those people more and more money for the privilege of doing that sounds, like a heap of help. Sounds like an invasion of our civil liberties to live, without judgment. Considering the smoking masses make up 1.1 billion of us or 17% of the worlds population. I think that makes a pretty strong, probably not healthy, minority.

Erm, not sure if your comment's pro my post or anti or just venting but thanks for input, i was just commenting on changing ettiquettes. I actually happen agree the ban is overall a bad thing and a thin edge of a dodgy wedge of 'health Nazism'.It's certainly destroying the pub trade and i'd prefer the smell of stale smoke than that of disinfectant and toilet blocks.
All the best Midge

Since I wrote that last post, not the one in chinesey, I've gone from a smoker to a not smoker. Yet never had to encounter your situation, although saying that i have avoided pubs clubs. I shall keep my eye vigilant.
