How well has it gone down with most people? Is it loved or hated?

Saying that doesnt change the fact that there are so many forums set up against the ban.

It also doesnt change the fact that 2,500 pubs have closed since the ban.

There is plenty of evidence that proves that this ban is very unpopular with a hell of a lot of people, and its easy to say that its loved, but proving it, well thats something else, isnt it?

Can you show that the smoking ban is loved and celebrated?

The mainstream media is finally admitting now that around 39 pubs a week are closing. We knew that this was happening but oh how the antis laughed.

Obviously there has to be a reason or reasons for this.

The weather is not a reason, cheap superarket booze isnt a reason, and the manufactured credit crunch isnt a reason. Why? Becase people have always gone to pubs, no matter what the weather, the price, or their financial situation.

So, what could it possibly be? Could it be that one of the very things which many many pubgoers (some sources say as high as 68%) like to do in pubs is now banned? Could that be it?

Is it inconceivable that it could have just the tiniest, teeniest thing to do with it?

One would have to be extremely ignorant or desperate to defend the smoking ban (despite the facts of its effects) to say that it doesnt.

Its one thing to agree with the smoking ban, quite another to refuse to acknowledge its effects.

If you agree with the ban go ahead and say so, but dont pretend that it isnt having any negative effect. That just stupid.

I consider it a positive effect if it means the rougher pubs shut down leaving the nicer ones open, which I suspect is what happens, so no I do not accept it as necessarily a negative. If there is less demand for those pubs, maybe there is also less drunkenness, although I am not a teetotaller I think this is a good thing

So do you acknowledge that 39 pubs are closing every week, mainly due to the smoking ban, therefore proving that it is not popular?

Nope it just proves a lot of people are going less to pubs, it does not have to be anything to do with the ban.

Just like the bombs of the blitz, recession and poor legislation do not discriminate between well and badly run pubs. It does not care if the landlord is good bad or indifferent.

Is it such a good thing when you 100,000 people lose their livlihoods? watch their children suffer as the dole bites deeper into their lifestyle. could anyone honestly stand there with pride and say a job well done?

I could not not and that is the difference between a humanitarian and a bitter twisted apology for a human being.
