It is not a total ban. People are allowed to smoke in their place of residence and Carstairs is Mr McCann’s place of residence.
Madness. But with a certain air of inevitably about it.

It is surely not outwith the intelligence of health fascists to have a smoking room or rooms with adequate ventilation. The government is happy to dole out methadone to addicts, but hell mend you if you dare to go against the greenie, tree- hugging, trendy-leftie strictures and do something perfectly legal like smoking.
I am a health fascist. I object to my taxes being used to pay for the damage done and public expense incurred by smokers and drinkers, and for having my health and safety threatened by such activities. Smokers and drinkers must still pay and so must the industries that profit from them.

Some 86 per cent voted for a partial ban. A partial ban does not necessarily require people to be sent outdoors. Up until a few years ago that would most clearly have been defined as a full ban. There would even be a real benefit in terms of fire safety as clandestine and isolated smoking and the pursuant hasty and improper disposal of butts would be greatly reduced. Patients should sue.

Yet another waste of the Legal Aid budget. They should repeal the Human Rights Act. There has been no noticeable benefit to any law-abiding British citizen. We worked well without it.
