With the furore created by the local politicians at Stony Stratford to enact a ruling that smoking outside is to be banned, a question or two:
1. Being a believer in the idea of "Localism", when were the people of Stony Stratford asked whether they favoured such a ban?
2. Is anyone able to source any autopsy procedure that shows death can be caused by the harmful effects resulting from breathing smoke from someone else’s cigarette, cigar or pipe?
3. Can anyone source an autopsy procedure which proves death was the result of cancer caused by smoking or breathing second-hand smoke?
I do not deny that to some the aroma of smoke is disdainful, neither do I deny that smoking results in shortness of breath and ailments that may, or may not, be conducive to good health.
However, I for one can only hope that from the ASH of pseudo-science the truth will be discovered……..
On the 'fag-end' of all the posts by other bloggers on this subject, I will 'butt' out of the discussion.
