Stephen Pollard on smoking bans

In the same issue of the Independent, Pollard argues that smoking bans may be offensive, but they work. He says he has misgivings about the way governments use such things to regulate personal behaviour, but he also hates eating while breathing smoke.

OK, so it is certainly more pleasant to be a non-smoker in a restaurant or bar in New York now that clothes don't reek of cigarette smoke. But let us have the debate on the sensible territory of personal taste and not on the misplaced basis of health risk.
