    From today [July 1st] throughout England you will no longer be able to smoke in ANY public place.

    So what do you guys think of this ban? I personally like it. I don't smoke so it's all good :)

    they have that here in ohio but its banned in open aired public places. i hear so many people complaining about it but if they didnt want the ban, all they had to do was vote against it lol.

    true the government is to pot over here not the smokers!!!!!! too many do gooders in this country.... everything has to be so "politically corect" spend more time and more policing sorting the mass mureders and weirdos out and the country would be a far nicer place ... leave us smokers alone!

    I think its good. I don't care if anyone smokes and they should be able to, but they need to keep the smoke to themselves.

    exactly.... im not agaisnt it but I do think there are more important things to worry about I agree with trying to cut down the risk etc......but I dont think its the core problem..............a smoke free england will probs urge people to quit.. therefore carnt be a bad thing..... but lack of concertration from the government springs to mind!!!

    You are such an evil person

    As a smoker and business owner I got doubly shafted today.

    The OP has missed a couple of words out..... It should read

    " They could also be charged on-the-spot fines of £200 if they fail to display the correct no-smoking signs"

    No longer is it enough to have a no-smoking sign, it has to be a Government approved sign that meets the following requirements......

    • be a minimum of A5 in area (210mm x 148mm)
    • display the international no-smoking symbol at least 70mm in diameter
    • carry the following words in characters that can be easily read
    No smoking. It is against the law to smoke in these premises’.


    As you can tell I'm unhappy about this, but as a smoker I don't have the energy or lung capacity to argue. So go ahead and tell me you hate the smell, it's my own fault, and that I should be denied treatment on the NHS. I won't try to claim that smoking is big, clever, or good for me.

    What I will say is that income tax will rise (again) if everyone quits tobacco, which is why this ridiculous ban is in place (PLEASE continue to buy them, just don't smoke them). I'm not a burden on the NHS.... at 20 per day I will have paid approx £44k EXTRA tax than a non-smoker over a 30 year period, and I truly hope that 'smoking related' diseases actually do start to fall as people are forced to quit.... if not then it means yet another untruth told by a politician.

    My god....... I think you should take that hate out on someone else.......... I was stating a fact..... yes cancer is a big killer but I was just saying theres worse people than smokers... maybe you should switch the news on and keep abreast of the world today instead of sat there on your high horse!!!

    we have a smoking ban in my hometown that just went into effect a few months ago. i don't think it's a big deal either way. i don't think bars should be non-smoking, though, especially after a certain time. no one goes to bars for their health, anyway.
