A wet and grey day in Brighton, and I am up to my armpits in removal boxes. Hence it is time to award "Prats of The Week".
This week it goes to the anti smoking Nazis who now want the Government to ban smoking in cars.
Action on Smoking and Health (Ash) claims the pollution caused by one cigarette in a car is as bad as a pub filled with smoke.
Ermmm...what about the pollution caused by the car itself?
In its report, Beyond Smoking Kills, it states that stopping smoking in cars is "vital in cutting the exposure of children and young people to the toxins in second-hand tobacco smoke".
Ash's director Deborah Arnott said:
"It's a serious health issue. Research from Canada shows if you smoke once in a car you get the same pollution as you used to get at the end of an evening in a pub.
The level of exposure you get in an enclosed vehicle is extremely high and it's not at all good for your health."
The thin end of the wedge, they will ban it altogether.
ASH, well deserving Prats of The Week.
