Smoking in Cars

Like those of the climate change liars, the 'scientific' assertions about cigarette smoke in cars just don't hold water. It's a fact that ambient levels of carcinogens in the air on a Westminster pavement are four times higher than those in a sealed car in which a smoker has just consumed a ciggie. 


I did the numbers in a post back in March HERE

And of course they have to use the poor children as a shield to get this over.
I suppose we will have to get used to the sight of nasty smokers huddled on the hard shoulder have a quick puff.
The next move will be to ban smoking in homes where there "could be" children present.

It's nothing to do with health or the climate - it's all about the self righteous trying to hide their fascist instincts behind a veneer of moral superiority.

Grrrrrrrrrrrr. I'm an ex-smoker of seven years, But if they do this, I shall get one of those electro-fags and make sure it is always to hand when a copper is about. Who the fuck do the BMA think they are.

My mother and father were both heavy smokers, so our Morris Minor estate was always full of cigarette and pipe smoke. The old man's favourite trick was to knock the bowl out of how window now and again. so that if you were behind him, and had the window open (as we usually did, so he could see while driving) you got a lap full of pipe tobacco embers on your lap. To the delight of the two brothers not sat their.

Doesn't seem to have traumatised us

I think the BMA/government should go further…

I reckon they should kill anyone caught smoking a cigarette…

Think of the children!

Is that why I was coughing at Westminster? I thought it was the hot air coming out of parliament.

Much as I loathe smoking, and welcome the smoking ban in pubs, this is plain ridiculous and intrusive and dictatorial.

The car is (presumably) the drivers' private property.
Provided they are not directly endangering others, by unsafe driving (as in using a moblie phone whilst in motion) ... then, if they want to smoke, that's uyp to them.

Interfering nannying.

I cannot see how they can enforce this at a time when police resources are so obviously stretched, the effect of which we saw so obviously during the summer riots. This plan is something that normal people need to say 'bollocks' to and ignore.
