Nanny Hates Car Fags

Nanny will, in theory, make it a criminal offence to smoke in cars in England when children are passengers.

MPs voted in favour of an amendment to the Children and Families Bill, which empowers, but does not compel, ministers to bring in a ban in England.

I suspect that this will not make it into the legislative programme before the next election. Even if it does, enforcement will be nigh on impracticable. The next step will be to ban smoking in homes that contain children.

The irony is that those who voted for this ban (and indeed the ban on smoking in the workplace some years ago) are allowed to smoke in the Palace of Westminster.

Meanwhile we (children included) continue to be irreparably damaged by the toxic fumes emitted by cars, lorries and planes.

  1. First, I suppose I should declare my interest.....I do not smoke, never have and never will. I will not travel in a car with someone smoking in it and I feel sick if I get into a car, in which, someone has been smoking.

    I do not support this ban which, Number Ten stated this morning, will come into effect BEFORE the next election. The "Won't someone think of the children" lobby has become too powerful and are too readily backed by the media. If you don't support them, their logic dictates that you want to harm or abuse children.

    I fear that once Nanny has set the precedent with this new ban, she will use it again and again to limit what we can do in our own private spaces and that, in my opinion, is wrong in a so called democratic, free society. How many more "perfectly legal" activities will Nanny make a criminal offence in the future in the name of a "ist," "ism," phobe,"Elf'n'Safety, "child protection/safeguarding" or national security?

    Nanny must make her mind up.....She must either keep smoking legal and enjoy the cash stream the taxation generates for her to waste or she should make it a crime to smoke and lose her cash stream......Mmmmm, I wonder what she'll do.

    I think any sensible parent would not smoke in a car where there is a child however, I don't think Nanny should introduce a law with criminal sanctions, to enforce common sense.

    I agree Ken, parents with children will be banned from smoking in their own homes soon, just as soon as Nanny can work out how to monitor people in their own homes, for their own good of course.

    Hasn't the flooding been a real Hi-Viz fest.
