Smoke-Free Spaces

Many non smokers do not want to inhale other people's smoke. I find it annoying when someone lights up in a public place, deliberately ignoring the rights of others not to be subjected to the noxious fumes from their cigarettes.

And so I was pleased to read a news article saying that the European Union's Health Commissioner has called for a ban on smoking in public places in EU member states. Smoking in public is already banned in Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Sweden.

The rest of Britain is expected to follow suit later this year. I can't wait for that to happen.
