Subject: RE: BS: smoking in uk pubs
As an asthmatic I can only welcome the ban. I'd love it if smokers were the polite, considerate beings that have been mentioned in previous postings but I've had several conversations with smokers which have tended to show up the fact that they consider their right to poison themselves is greater than my right to breathe.

Of course, back in the Golden Age of politeness it was thought that smoking was a sign of sophistication, which is why it's in so many of the older movies.
