Area man speaks out

I'm supposed to be on holiday this week, but the nanny state never sleeps so I was on Sky News earlier today speaking from my backyard (relatively speaking) in Hove about the proposal to ban smoking in parks and beaches. Deborah Arnott from ASH was on the end of a rather distorted line so I didn't catch everything that was said, but she didn't seem like she really had her heart in it to me. Who can blame her? It is a truly appalling idea on every level.

I should be debating the same issue with Brighton and Hove's director of public health tomorrow on BBC Sussex radio (at around 9.10am). If I can get him to explain what the hell a voluntary ban is, I will let you know.

Anyway, here's the video...


He was a no-show.
