Welsh Nanny's Voluntary Fag Ban a Bully's Charter


ITV reports that a voluntary smoking ban starts today in a trial at Caswell Bay, Swansea.

Swansea Council says it's part of a drive to create more smoke-free places in the city. Little Haven in Pembrokeshire was the first smoke-free beach.
We know that seeing smoking highly influences young people and it is imperative we do anything we can to stop smoking being seen as 'normal' and keep our next generation away from tobacco's clutches.
Caswell Bay is a picturesque area in Swansea. Chemical-filled cigarette butts are the most littered item in the world with over 4 trillion tonnes being dropped annually. A voluntary ban on smoking here will have a huge impact on preserving this area's natural beauty by reducing litter which pollutes our beaches and waterways.
– Suzanne Cass, Chief Executive ASH Wales Cymru

Simon Clark, director of the smokers' group Forest, said:
Smoking in the open air poses no risk to anyone else's health, nor is there evidence that the sight of a stranger smoking encourages children to smoke.
Youth smoking rates are currently at their lowest levels ever so this policy is both intrusive and unnecessary.
This is simply a bully's charter, giving non smokers the right to bully smokers!

    Is this Suzanne Cass mad or does she think everyone is stupid? 4 trillion tonnes of butts dripped annually? Really? As the total tobacco production of the world is just 7.5 million tonnes, this is utter nonsense. Simple maths would have told her that. Did she just pluck a figure out of thin air?

    I think she is working on the assumption that every person on earth each drops around 570 tonnes of fag butts a year.

    (4 Trillion divided by 7 Billion)

    What a silly fucker she is!

    Well, ASH usually just pluck figures out of the air...

    How can a ban be 'voluntary'? I'd voluntarily ignore it and await with relish Mrs Jones hurrying towards me from half a mile away, dragging along little Dai who's just stood on one of the dog turds littering the beach.

    The fuckers in my district council are about to impose a voluntary ban in the children's play parks in its control. I can't remember ever seeing a child smoke in there.

      I hope you will continue to smoke in the children's play park and when Mrs Bien-pensant takes issue with you, put her firmly in her place!

    If we assume that the weight of a cigarette butt is about a fifth of the entire weight of a cigarette, and that the worldwide production of tobacco is 7.5 million tonnes, then about 1.5 million tonnes of butts are chucked away each year.

    On the basis that the ‘threat’ from discarded butts is about a 2.7 millionth of the figure that Ms. Cass has quoted, perhaps she should rethink her stance on a voluntary ban.

    But I bet that she won’t.
