The Dutch, Their Smoker Ban, and A Victory!

This story, from Freedom to Choose (Scotland)  fairly warmed the cockles of my cold, cold heart.

Go read it. Victories for smokers are few and far between nowadays.

I know Weil. I've had several chats with him, and I know this victory will only serve to redouble his efforts.

Well done mate!!

I do believe that is Wiel 2, Dutch Gov 0. :)

Thanks H!

The man just went from hero to legend.

I'll go and see him next time I'm in Holland and take a piccie of him for my wall.

Made my day, that news did.

Well done that man there!

We need more than small victories though this is good.

Captain Ranty said...

It's a start James.

We have to count our blessings.

Weil won't stop, and fortunately, they have a right wing government in. They are more libertarian.

It may be amended yet again. Or binned.

Fingers crossed!

But we all know the coalitions view which is that "'Obviously" the smoking ban is not up for discussion', N. Clegg.
