An article of Simon Clark’s. Most of the European Countries have taken a middle road when it comes to smoking with the exception of the England, Ireland and Scotland.
Thousands of pubs and clubs, many more bar staff, and hundreds of local communities, the smoking ban has been a disaster. ASH continues to claim that the smoking ban had no impact on the economy and they are government funded with a staff of 30.
ASH and others like them would disappear if your cigarette tax money would stop funding them. It is time to put an end to ASH as they have done in the Netherlands.
