Britain will ban smoking in public parks and offenders will be fined as per new rules of the state councils.
In a first step to match America’s "zero tolerance" policy, councils and National Health Service (NHS) trusts aim to use the government’s new Localism Bill to curb lighting up in areas including play areas, Daily Express reported.
The purpose is to make smoking history for children by stamping out the habit in outside areas.
And we wonder why the Europeans hate us, here is one good reason. One out of three households having smoking parents in Britain, this smoking ban seems to be a complete farce. The "for the kids" is not only getting old but ridiculous.
