Overturn The Smoking Ban.
I would like the government to consider overturning the smoking, or least a partial overturn.
In my opinion, the government have failed to realise that they are persecuting the very people who pump so much money into this country via taxes from buying cigarettes. As a smoker, I find myself feeling uncomfortable and singled out as a result of this ban - a ban I feel was made up of coincidental incidents with regards to some people's health.
Perhaps the government could consider granting public houses and bars licences for smoking areas within their premises? Or alternatively, scrap the ban and realise how important smokers are to this country.
