Lets not. In Room 101 are people who think the UK begins and ends in it's capital. Plus do you have stats for that? No obviously. Believe it or not there are bar staff and pubs and bars outside our fine capital who have both foreign and non-foreign workers. Just in case you were wondering.
I wasn't wondering and I don't care. I live in London, a massively cosmopolitan city of 8.3 million people. A place where there is so much cocaine use, that it's infected our water supply. Where you can get any vice you want 24 hours a day - but you can't smoke in a single pub.
What's worse is that unlike the bucolic bumpkins with their acres of green belt land, finding a pub with a decent and heated beer garden that isn't any bigger than a postage stamp and chocked to capacity is impossible.
Again, all I ask for is a choice, it doesn't even have to be a big choice or the majority choice, say 1 in 5 pubs that allow smoking. That's it, doesn't sound too outrageous does it? Unless you're a mad ideological zealot that hates freedom or seeing people enjoy themselves.
I'll go one better, how about if they only allow smoking for six months of the year, October to March, that would be okay wouldn't it? Or do you have a desire to see people suffer, that they must be somehow punished for enjoying a legal activity, like drinking? And that is why I hate British people.
