"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Amending The Smoking Ban

There's a move afoot to amend the smoking ban and a group of cross-party MPs will be hosting a Reception later on behalf of the Save Our Pubs & Clubs Campaign.
Campaigners say the ban has had a devastating impact on community pubs throughout Britain. Almost three years after the introduction of smoking bans in England, Scotland and Wales, Scotland had lost 7.1 per cent of its pub estate (467 pubs), Wales 7.3 per cent (274), and England 7.6 per cent (4,148).

For smoking-related stories and how the ban has affected people & their livelihoods have a look at Freedom-2-Choose.
