Subject: RE: BS: smoking in uk pubs
I welcome the ban on smoking in public places, particularly in pubs.

It is unfortunate that unlike George, who has great regard for the feelings of others, there are many who don't give a toss or who imagine that their smoke does not affect others. For me, it only takes one smoker to ruin a session or an evenings singing in a club.

It really is sad that the old values, consideration for others etc. have gone into decline. How many young and not-so-young people seem unable to string a sentence together without the 'f' word? Would that the Government could put a ban on that too! But I digress...

I have been to clubs where smoking is still allowed but I rarely go back. I go to folk clubs, and the occasional session, because I enjoy the music and despite the discomfort caused to me by other people's smoking.

I hope the ban may save a few lives or at least improve a few people's health.
