Pub Laws

Marvellous double standard on display in the Telegraph today, with them coming out against the proposed smoking ban.

I particularly liked this bit.

"Ministers, however, do not believe we can be trusted to decide these things for ourselves. As with pistol-shooting, smacking, hunting or eating beef on the bone, their first instinct is to proscribe what they do not like."

And how exactly does this statement reconcile with the Telegraph's ongoing campaign AGAINST the Government's plans for 24 hour opening ?

The people know best...err, except when we say they don't...
