As a frequent visitor to the UK—I fly British Airway’s radioactive planes!—I have to say I’m pretty happy about this news. It’s nice to know that the UK has its fair share of addicted whiners too…
British artist David Hockney is among those outraged at the ban, which will follow similar moves in Ireland, France Scotland, Italy and Lithuania.
“Pubs aren’t health clubs. What do you go to a pub for?,” said the artist, who has warned that move will “destroy bohemia” and described those who proposed it as “absolutely dreary”.
Who knew that bohemia was dependent for its very existence on those huge multinational corporations that sell cigarettes? You learn something new every damn day.
Mmm… his paintings sell for millions… he’s so boho…
