It's going to happen Peter. Live with it. We went to a pub last night after a concert (Bamford Arms - only Hyde Jekyll's on, no Boddies, what a shame :-) ). Not many people were smoking (none of our group) but our clothes stank of stale tobacco afterwards. That's the difference between a smoking ban and your bete noir, an alcohol ban. If you drink alcohol, nobody else stinks of it, or gets poisoned by it, as a result.

Unfortunately, Peter is finding this very hard to deal with - I think he might need counselling :-)

I thought that happened once, landlord forgot to renew or something; there are plenty of pubs with nothing worth drinking.

Peter thinks that this is the thin end of the wedge, and alcohol will be the next target of these control freaks. I don't think he's correct, and he's flogging a dead horse in this case, but it's a perfectly valid view which he is quite entitled to hold.

Personally it seems to me that he is burying his head in the sand - but he is entitled to do that too!

IMV all the morons in CAMRA who are welcoming this are burying their heads in the sand.

Morons? Harsh. Does it not occur to you, Peter, that you are in a very small minority? And does that not tell you something?

As far as pubgoers go I am not in a small minority at all. Huge numbers are aggrieved about the smoking ban.
And all opinion polls that have offered the option of "separate rooms for smokers" have gained a majority for that.
I am a non-smoker of many years' standing, as I have often stated.
As famously said by Danny Frederick: "If you value the freedom to do the things you enjoy, you had better defend the freedoms of others to do the things they enjoy too."

It's far too late to start a campaign now. Accept that smoking just isn't acceptable in public any more.

Have you a source for that assertion?
Huge numbers are
And huge numbers are overjoyed. All of which is irrelevant because it's happening.
It's also irrelevant whether you smoke or not.
I want the freedom to be able to go into a pub (and other public places) and not have to inhale someone else's smoke, thereby increasing the risk of getting a disease via passive smoking. Thankfully that is happening at long last.

How dare you talk about freedom when for years non-smokers have had the freedom to set up their own non smoking pubs. But they chose not to.(with one or two exceptions).. Now you and your kind are denying smokers the freedom to set up their own smoking pubs.

As we have had to live with getting smoke blown all over us at pubs, clubs, restaurants and many other places. We're fed up with going home stinking of other peoples smoke and having our health affected by it. Rearrange the following: other shoe is foot now the the on
