A Ban on Smoking in Cars Which Contain Children...

Post by Palinka (RIP) » Wed Feb 12, 2014 7:49 am

...has been passed in the UK, recently. After all, who wouldn't favour cute little kiddies over nasty smokers and their evil way? Obviously, it's a no brainer, isn't it?

But, wait a minute...

This is the same Government who haven't given a toss about the people in the North or South-West of England, who have been severely hit, since before Christmas 2013, by the worst floods to hit the UK in living memory, and only decided that "money is no object" (a quote from our Prime Minister David "Useless Posh Twit" Cameron) when the Thames Valley and London came under threat of flooding.

This is the same Government who, six weeks ago, voted, almost unanimously, against a proposal calling on the Government to reduce dependency on emergency food aid by upping living conditions, pay and access to health treatments for the poorest sections of the UK (who are unlikely to smoke in a car which contains their children, by the simple expedient of being unable to afford a car or tobacco, or food for their children ensuring the cute little kiddies don't grow up to be poor, by making them dead; and dead people rarely break the law!).

most smokers open the window in the car anyway, if you turn the ventilation up it really doesn't get very smoky

California has had this ban for a while, I beliebe. (Since 2008 accordion to wikiwiki.)

Also: one California town has... banned smoking in all homes that share walls with other residences.

My Dad smoked almost every time I rode in the car with him and I have so far made it to age 33.

I have fond memories of sitting in the back seat of a 67 Ford Galaxie 500 going places with my folks puffing away on Kent or L&M cigarettes - windows rolled up......this is likely the biggest reason I never took up the habit.

See my Dad had the windows down which may be why I took it up. If only he had left the windows up I might not have had to go through quitting.

You remember the days when you'd walk into a Denny's restaurant for example and the entire place was shrouded in a bank of smoke but they still asked if you wanted "smoking or non smoking" section?

A booth for two for the gas chamber section, please!

I can't even imagine what it was like on smoking airplanes back in the day.
How can it be so cold in here? It's like Greenland in here. We've got to get some booze. It's the only solution to this intense cold. Something's got to be done. We can't go on like this. - Withnail

Lovely description! I dis-stink-ly reckymember the scent of a cigarette butted out into a plate of scrambled eggs, left smouldering in the buttah. Grammy Thomas was one tough chick.
