Nanny Hates Fags - Nanny Bans Outside Smoking

As we all know, Nanny hates fags (despite making gazillions every year from the tax she puts on them). As such she has done her level best to stop us from smoking in buildings and cars.

However, banning us from smoking inside is simply not good enough, Nanny also wants to ban us from smoking outside.

Step forward Barbacoa in Crosby, which becomes that first restaurant/bar in the UK to ban smoking in their outdoor beer garden.

For why?

It seems that some customers have been deterred by the fact that the outdoor space has become an 'al fresco smoking lounge.'

Barbacoa owner Gordon Tartt is quoted by the Mirror:
“Customers were complaining that the outside of the restaurant was becoming an al fresco smoking lounge so we’ve created a place where people can eat and drink in a smoke free environment.

During the fine weather people want to go outside but many were turned off by the huddle of smokers. It’s already proving extremely popular and we’re delighted to receive the very first Fresh Air award.”
Melody Holt, tobacco control manager at the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, said:
This is the first smoke free beer garden that we’re aware of and we would encourage other establishments to follow their lead.

We believe it’s really important that when people step outside for fresh air, that’s what they should get rather than clouds of smoke. The dangers of passive smoking are well-known.”
I like fresh air too, therefore please can Nanny ban people from driving cars, lorries and flying planes?

  1. "The dangers of passive smoking are well-known"

    Not outside they're not, the woman is lying by omission.

  2. The dangers of passive smoking may be well known, they are however entirely fictitious, indoor or out.

    The Barbacoa sounds like a complete shit hole. With a landlord that sees his job not merely as serving his clients, but also as bossing them around.

    Most pub landlords see their outdoor beer gardens as being ‘al fresco smoking lounges’ and are pleased to accommodate their smoking clients in them. That is the whole point of having them.

    Mr Tartt sounds like a cunt and I hope that he soon goes skint.
