Major report on passive smoking shows health risk...
... or not, as the case may be. It's some good PR spin on all the old evidence which shows a heightened risk caused by passive smoking that is, frankly, too small to be measured against the background noise.

If you want to say restrict smoking in certain places because of changing fashions (as has happened long since on buses, trains and planes) that's one thing. But it is quite another to use spurious health risks in order to pursue a moralistic agenda.
