I voted NO today

The vast majority of the YES voters are unwashed, semi literate, football hooligans whose idea of democratic debate is to break the windows of anyone daring to display a NO sticker.

Posted in: Have Japan’s anti-smoking laws gone too far? See in context

I was in Japan last year - it's a smokers paradise compared to the UK. Cheap fags, and restaurants where you can smoke in a separate place from the non smokers.

Personally I'm happy to stay away from rabid anti smokers as so many of them seem to have such intolerant fascistic attitudes to anything they deem to be unacceptable. I don't want anyone like that near me.

One of the good things about a total ban would be to hear the non smokers whine when their taxes rose to replace the lost revenue from tobacco.

Brain death? Cardio pulmonary arrest? - In Glasgow where I live, that's normal moderate drinking - it certainly wouldn't be in the news unless you murdered someone as well.

Churchill drank at least a bottle of brandy a day and a couple of bottles of wine still managed to keep Britain going in 1940 Britain - Ulysses Grant drank heavily and won the Civil War.

The only thing sadder and more irrelevant than the Stones at 50 are the sad losers silly enough to go to see them and buy this book.
