Re: Bann On Public Smoking
yes but there is a thing called health and safety and if these "privately owned areas" serve the public then they are no longer private. now you say privately owned areas such as pubs, can i ask do you know wat pub is short for? well i will tell you, public house, not private house. now these establishments need to have a certain level of health and safety for their patrons.
like would you accept drinking in a pub with with dirty beer taps? no because its dangerous and the government have identifed that as such, smoking is no different, its dangerous and therefore in public places needs to be stopped.
