Tobacco display ban a 'silly idea'
HAVING been a smoker for 40 years, I have seen lots of publicity about the dangers of smoking.
I agree with the ban on smoking inside pubs and restaurants, as some people have breathing and nose infections by this. They go outside to smoke.
They now print the dangers on the packets, but at the last visit to the supermarket they now have to hide their display with permanent closed shutters. What a silly idea.
Does this method simply stop teenagers etc from purchasing cigarettes? (I doubt it).

Now the government is considering stopping the various colours on packets and keeping to one colour, grey I think, and no name.
How this is going to confuse over-worked shop workers, who work long hours and have busy periods.
Now they are talking about reducing the ABV, alcohol abbreviation volume, on beers and lager.
So when you go into a pub, is Pedigree, for example, going to be without its name or badge or pump? What next?
People smoke and drink to reduce stress after a hard day's work. After all, it's their pleasure.
So can our ministers stop interfering with our proud, beloved society? We pay enough tax on everything as it is.
