Nanny In Disarray

Nanny In DisarrayIt seems that Nanny, as usual, cannot get her act together with regard to yet another "centre piece" of her legislative programme.

This particular piece of legislation relates to her anti smoking fetish.

Nanny is meant to present a bill tomorrow, which bans smoking in public places. However, her plans are in disarray after Cabinet ministers failed to agree on whether there should be exemptions.

Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt wants to ban smoking in all pubs and clubs. However, she is prepared to give pubs and restaurants the freedom to set aside a room for smoking where staff would not have to work.

But get this, no food or drink would be served in these rooms.

Brilliant idea that Pat!

Needless to say, she has faced opposition.

Her predecessor, John Reid, is against a proposal to extend the ban to private clubs.

The failure of Nanny's acolytes to reach agreement raises doubts as to whether this piece of legislation will actually be introduced.

The future of our country in the hands of these people!

As a point of historical interest, Hitler was a vegetarian non smoker and non drinker.

Think about it!

By the way, once Nanny has banned smoking, she will then go after drinking and eating.

She's coming after you soon folks!

    Hitler also banned hunting. And wasn't too keen on hecklers....

    Whoa! One of Nanny's minions defending a private property right (maybe he was drunk or medicated at the time)? This Yank is curious to know, was he given the boot for this position?

    ... Patricia Hewitt ... is prepared to give pubs and restaurants the freedom to set aside a room for smoking where staff would not have to work.

    Pubs already set aside rooms where people go to exude waste liquid. No food or drink is served in these rooms. Why not allow pubs, if they wish, to provide an extra room for their customers to exhale waste smoke.

    Or is it that exuding waste liquid or other people's hair/clothes/food is considered something of a faux pas, whereas exhaling waste smoke on their hair/clothes/food is reasonable behaviour?
