Smoking Ban

There I was thinking that the work we are doing on the Assembly's Smoking in Public Places Committee will lead nowhere and suddenly it is game on. It seems that the Government White Paper on smoking could lead to Wales having the power to devise its own legislation. This will almost certainly lead to a complete ban on smoking in public places here. These are interesting times.

Comments:
The Welsh assembly are turning Wales into a Nazi State , not a nanny state...The smoking ban will bring bood-shed and more wide spread crime....The assembly better build at least tripple the prisons now in existance,as this discriminating ,civil rights destroying and liberty destroying Nazi style law will surely be the downfall of the Assembly ...

There is no evidence that the ban on smoking in people's place of work will lead to any such thing. It has been successfully implemented in Ireland, Scotland, Italy, New York, California and many other places without these sort of impacts.
 
Alas,The evidence you speak of,is just pure propaganda,IE:IF YOU TELL THE PUBLIC OFTEN ENOUGH,THEY WILL,REPEAT WILL,BELIEVE IT....NO MATTER HOW UNTRUE IT IS....

There is evidence all around you ,ie: the London murder?..pub closures,fighting,etc..etc..there`s your evidence...Give back the freedom of choice to the people of Wales..before it`s too late..
 
What I said was that there is no evidence. If the absence of evidence is propaganda then clearly we are arguing about theory not practice.
