Nanny Bans Fags In Cars With Kids

Karl Astel
English Nanny will, as from 1 October, ban drivers in England from smoking in their cars if they are carrying children as passengers. 

Break the law, and Nanny will fine you £50.


Wales already bans this, but Scotland hasn't yet. Therefore, feel free to light up as soon as you cross the border.

Quite how Nanny expects to enforce this, given that people merrily text and use mobiles etc hither and thither when driving (when they shouldn't) is beyond me. Doubtless a loyal band of snoopers will rise up and help Nanny collect her fines.

Coming soon, I assume, we may expect an attempt to ban smoking in our own homes.

As a loyal reader noted, this passive smoking shit was invented by one of Hitler's henchmen!

    Soon. very soon. Let's start with council rental properties, right?
    As for the car lark, you may enjoy this wot I did a few weeks ago;

    @Mac - look in the private rental properties section in estate agents' windows, 99% say smoking is verboten (and therefore, in effect smokers are banned - is any smoker in their right mind going to pay through the nose to rent, then self-regulate by standing outside in sub-zero winter temperatures?). The alternative is not breach the tenancy agreement and live in fear of eviction.

    HMG's got some tricky arithmetic (sorry Maths) to do to make sure the £11 billion net income from smokers is maintained in the face of the onslaught against them.
    Red Ed got it a bit wrong recently when he trumpeted that he would increase funding to the NHS from a war on tobacco companies (for that read smokers) until someone kindly reminded him that if wee Andy's proposals were implemented then revenue would decline.....

    Truly, you couldn't make it up.

    Sorry - above should obviously read "alternative is breach..."

    (Getting over-excited in my rage!)


  4. "Truly, you couldn't make it up."
    We need to stop saying that as it seems, more and more, that what normal people couldn't make up today, the nutters in power manage to pass into law tomorrow.

  5. If successive governments had not given away so many competences to "The So Called European Union" then they would not need to interfere in so many areas of our private lives.....To focus the minds of our politicians, I suggest we give them a salary of £100,000 PA and then deduct money pro rata for areas of responsibilty they have given to the so called European Union. We look at what the government was responsible for pre 1972 and then work forward to today deducting money for each of those responsibilities they given away.....I suspect a salary of about £10,000PA would be the outcome....If they then want to give away further powers, so their salary reduces further, if they take powers back, so their salaries increase.

    If we did as you are suggesting, Tonk, the politicians would have to pay us!
