Ah. You mean fat middle aged mothers with pushchairs? The ones that push
you into the path of oncoming traffic?
No, you must mean those lovely lager lads who smash into your car on a
What about those fast food places that sell you food that renders you
Or those buses that poison the air you breathe?
Or those lads on motor bikes who rip up the countryside?
Or those fishermen polluting the world with lead weights?
Or thos elabeout politicaons poisoning monds with their classist twaddle?
Yeah. let's ban the lot of them. Danger to life and limb the lot of them
In actual fact, alcohol probably causes far more damage to the UK. Ask any
accident and emergency doctor, or the police. Or take a look at the stats.
The vast majority of assaults, GBH, murders, rapes and domestic abuse
involve alcohol. Here they have just passed a law banning late-night
takeaways from selling any drink in a glass bottle because of the dangers of
If you really were to push me to a choice, I'd say we'd be better off
banning alcohol in public places. Far better for the UK as a whole. But, I'm
not a facist bigoted fool, so I won't be pushing for that!
I agree a friend is a nurse and says that saturday night is now called
"fright night" and that 97% of the worse incidents are alcohol
And the abuse that hospital staff have to put up with is disgusting
almost 100% of cases are alcohol related.
Why not ban alcohol altogether then maybe our police and hospitals can
get on with the job that they are paid to do instead of them having to
deal with the drunken slobs that roam our streets at night causing
havoc and death to the other members of society who just want to get
on with their lives.
A choice of either drunks or smokers for me the smoker would win hands
I knew it!!! Just what I said earlier in the thread. The brainwashed
addicted ones are now scrapping the barrel and using the two wrongs make a
right angle and then in a futile way bring alcohol into the fray. Yes
everyone, you did read that. Pathetic we all know.
Sads but true, this is what they do.

Most of teh pubklic don't use wheelchairs either, or have babiues, yet
there are places reserved for them and building altered.
Lets save shitloads of money by naffing the kids and shooting people in
wheelchairs. They cost FAR more to the NHS than smokers!
Judging by the rate at which pubs are closing, few actually use them
regularly. Perhaps a poll of those who do would give different results.
I really can't see why it's not up to the individual owner to decide if
his premises are to be smoking or not. If the majority of patrons really
did want non-smoking pubs etc, it would make commercial sense to do it

A few things about polls:
a) Who paid for it?
b) What was the sample size vs population of the country?
c) What was the method of polling? Different types of people respond
to different types of polling, and ditto folk that say "sorry, too
d) What exactly were the questions asked? Were they "leading" in any way?
e) No issues are black and white. Where did the "middle-ground" people vote?
e) What time of day were they polled?
f) Any other polls out there showing different or similar results?
Polls don't mean shit.
