Oh, and improved (legislated) ventilation in separate rooms would have been enough to allow smoking in some places . . with of course the obligatory warning signs for those who were too thick to understand the difference between smoking and non smoking areas
Pretty irresponsible to smoke in front of children don't you agree?

I do agree that some pubs should have been allowed to declare a no -smoking policy but to force it on all...
Public houses starting closing in droves because it was cheaper to buy booze from the supermarkets and that trend is continuing to this day.

They started closing in droves because drinkers had to go outside in all sorts of weather to have a smoke. Drink was always cheaper in supermarkets.

It was a stupid decision which will have a lasting effect on communities.

I agree. The positive effect on health within our most deprived communities will be lasting.

Too many facts there for some Den :
Pubs are also closing because the latest drinking generation prefer to do other things.

The banning of smoking was not THE reason for pub closures but it was more than one nail in the coffin.

Not sure what your point is?

The highest Law Officer in the U.K. commends our judges’ excellence and impartiality, states he has total confidence in their independence, and you compare that statement with Iran and it’s judges - so?

Anyhoo, BJ says no to NF.

Boris Johnson will not make an election pact with Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage, Downing Street has said.

Mr Farage said his party and the Conservatives should make a deal and "together we would be unstoppable".

Two newspaper adverts set out his offer to help "secure a big Brexit majority" and to "destroy Corbyn's Labour".

But a senior Conservative source said Mr Farage was "not a fit and proper person" and "should never be allowed anywhere near government".

Correct - You have 2 out of 3 cases, saying Boris Proroguing Parliament was lawful and a Scottish Court saying not -, you got a former Supreme Court Justice, Lord Sumption saying, it's not unlawful, who's right...?
