A smoke and a pint? No chance…

Tony Blair’s favourite think-tank, the ippr (note cuddly lower case initials) has just issued a report about how our ‘community pubs’* are under threat.

No mention is made of the effects of the smoking ban in England which came into force less than a week after Blair left office.

Perhaps this piece of draconian legislation has had some effect on the decline of the British local…

Not, it appears, that everyone has to creep outside for a quick smoke.

*Of course, that’s what we all call our local…yet another example of how the people who want to control the way we live haven’t got the first fucking idea about the way we live.
