This has nothing to do with health.
This is just another petty vindictive move by a bunch of small minded bigots who have a pathological hatred of smokers, or indeed of anyone enjoying themselves.
It is an unworkable law. Various police forces around the world have stated that it is unworkable, as it is almost impossible to enforce. So the next step will be to ban smoking in all cars whether there is a child or not, just in case there might be a child.
I have watched these anti-smoker zealots. They are humourless joyless individuals. They were the kids who were never picked for games in the playground and who consoled themselves by pulling the wings off flies. They were the kids who licked up to the school bully just to get a little protection. Now they have found themselves a new bully of the political variety and they are wetting themselves with joy.
It’s time someone pulled their wings off.
