Oh how I miss good old Soviet Union!
They didn't say they wanted to outlaw it. Plus, I doubt they ever would anyway, tax revenue is about £12 billion.

My apologies. They did not say ban indeed. I've edited my post to be more accurate.

I want the same thing done with all unhealthy food items. Fair is fair.

Unhealthy food products don't have the potential to harm other people by consuming them.

Who do they think they are, taking away people's right to choose and decide for themselves? Bloody dictatorship do-gooder bastards. And I don't even smoke. May as well ban sweets, alcohol, chewing gum, fast food, etc while you're at it! Indeed, underground it shall become.

Re: UK Could Be A 'No Smoking Nation' By 2032

how about all of the garbage that results from fast food consumption. That damages the environment and peoples health more than some secondhand smoke
