fi_in_nz - I think most clubs in my part of the world frown on smoking, so that even if there's no formal ban, people don't smoke - but I live down South, and maybe it's different up North. Still it'd be worth enquiring around.

And the same goes for festival venues, and there are lots of those in your end of the country.

We have just arrived back in the UK and will be here for a year. We've come from New Zealand where smoking in pubs was banned in November last year. The stats have still to be compiled for the first year, but it seems that so far pubs have not been adversely effected and since kids can go into pubs over there the number of people drinking in pubs may actually go up.

We are both folk musicians and have a small baby (3 months). We have had a fabulous time in NZ since the birth of Finley and have continued to attend all the festivals, pub sessions and folk club nights we did before he was born (with him in tow). The folk club in Auckland has been non smoking for many years and is full to capacity (about 100 people) nearly every week; anyone who smokes can have a fag outside in the break.

Since Finley comes with us wherever we go and we won't take him to smoking venues, it looks like our folk life is to be severly curtailed in the UK. This is a crying shame since Finley has been used to music from day one - at 5 days old he'd spent more than half of his life at a folk festival. In fact he seems to be a bit of a fiddle fan. I would love to become more acquainted with the UK folk scene at it's roots in the clubs, but it seems there are no non smoking venues in the area where we will be (Huddersfield). I am sure we are not the only family being kept out of the clubs by the current smoking policy of most pubs and folk clubs.

Do smokers take advice? - I once suggested to a motorist that he put his cig out immediately - "Why? - what's it to you!!! ****?" he replied.

I pointed out that bending his head and face up close to inspect the acid level in his car battery was not a good idea. He still asked why......

Bring on the ban asap - for all our sakes

I hate it when you have offered someone a lift in the car and they have to have a last cigarette just before they get in. Don't smokers realise how bad their breath is when they have just put their fag out - and they think they are being thoughtful by not smoking in the car.

Fabric conditioner!!! The smell turns my stomach in the same way that the smell of cigarette smoke does. When my daughter has a sleep-over at a friend's house, I have to wash all her clothes and her hair when she gets back, so strongly does she smell of this awful, synthetically perfumed stuff. Not sure if it's just the cheap ones that stink so strongly or if the mothers who use it, use over-large amounts...perhaps to cover up the smell of something else? I only know that it makes me feel sick.

Love Lynne

1940. The height of the Blitz, London's burning, bombs are still falling, and two fire fighters, black with smoke and dirt, are leaning against a wall, taking a very short rest to catch their breath.

"Ay, mate. I'm dyin' fer one. Got a fag on ya?"
"Now, now, Charlie. Ya knows we can't smoke in public."

NO - its what a bouncer asks you just before he throws you out of a night club.

If you've really been naughty he says "pick a window"

As far as banning is concerned they haven't got the balls, they're concerned about upsetting the fighters and the people who take great delight in watching for pleasure - and of course the revenue they make.

JacqiC - not into the bull's heart, they insert the sword in the back of the neck and sever the spinal cord (so I'm reliably informed by a colleague who has witnessed this vile spectacle, although I'm sure someone will correct me).

Whatever, it's amongst the basest forms of human activity, and our spineless European Parliament should get off their over-paid fat useless arses and ban it immediately.

Bull fighting? you call that a sport? Some nipfart in tight pants comes out with a three foot sword, AFTER his lackeys have weakened the bull with a bunch of spears in his shoulder, then he minces around like a friggin' ballet dancer until the bull is hardly able to stand. Then, with a great show of balls, he plunges the sword into the poor beast's heart. Some sport!
I ALWAYS root for the bull. Sometimes one of them will get lucky and gore the macho asshole.
Fox hunting, bull "fighting" and bear baiting are cruel and way below human beings. Well, the humans who are higher on the evolutionary ladder at least. There is no excuse for such barbaric behaviour.

As Rose said in THE AFRICAN QUEEN, "Nature, Mr. Allnutt, is what we were put on this earth to rise above."

As MBSL pointed out, I used to smoke. I worked in London at the time that smoking was banned on the Underground - overnight, it became immensely cleaner and more pleasant.

Nobody stopped using it. They (I) had a fag outside before and after the journey.

Nobody has stopped using air travel because they can't smoke.

I have now realised that a) anyone has the right to smoke and harm themselves b) everyone has the right not to smoke and harm themselves and c)every right has a responsibility with it - in the case of smokers, not to harm any one else, and for non-smokers not to preach at smokers!

One of the reasons, however, that I now actually dislike going into pubs is that I come out stinking of stale fag smoke. Another is that I have to breathe other peoples second hand smoke - and farts are preferable, because they rarely last as long.

So I will be happy if it is banned inside pubs etc., but will find the little knots of smokers quite amusing:-)

Farts should be banned, too. Especially farts after a few days of beer, pickled eggs and peanuts. That's just my opinion. I don't expect to receive fan mail about this topic.

The thing is, one has to wonder if farts are wet and lumpy. Sometimes it's just too late to tell. Therefore, BAN FARTS.

Good afternoon everyone,
                        Just returned from an excellent days fox hunting. We bagged two of the blighters.Smoking can prove to be awkward whilst on horseback as the tobacco tends fall out of my pipe at full gallop. But yesterday I tried out my new briar, which has a perforated silver top. I stuffed it full of glorious St.Bruno and lit up. You will be pleased to learn that said top was excellent at tobacco retention, and I puffed away peacefully all day.

I recall John Cleese (of "Monty Python", "Fawlty Towers" etc) in an advertisement against smoking.

"This is how much ash someone who smokes twenty cigarettes a day makes". (Empties an urn onto a table.) "Of course, not all of them are cremated. Some of them are buried."



Of course, the ill effects of smoking can be freakishly random. My paternal grandfather smoked a pipe almost non-stop, all his adult life. He nearly made it to ninety, still quite hale, before succumbing to something which had nothing to do with smoke inhalation. My father smoked one or two cigarettes a fortnight, and suffered chronic bronchitis for years. If there is one reason I never started smoking, it is childhood memories of being shoulder-charged out of the bathroom doorway on some mornings as my father rushed to cough up the entire contents of his thorax.


My brother stopped smoking entirely when his eldest child (a daughter) was born. Perhaps that's why she became a vegan ?
