Ban has no effect on smokers - The Irish Times - Wed, Oct 19, 2011

Thanks to Audrey Silk for posting this on Facebook-

THE SMOKING ban has not had any appreciable effect on the number of smokers in Ireland, the chief medical officer at the Department of Health has said.


Of course not, we smokers could have told them that. What it has had an effect on however, is the hospitality industry in Ireland. The number of pubs that have closed their doors since the implementation of the smoking ban is staggering! This has unnecessarily left many people destitute and out of work, and all for what?

It's time for a bit of truth: Bureaucrats are not very good problem solvers, which is why I have come to hold the firm belief that smaller government is better government.
