Forest limbers up for summer

Not sure this is the best moment to be labelled a lobbyist.

Nevertheless beggars can't be choosers and the London Evening Standard yesterday reported that:

Westminster lobbyists, undeterred by the latest scandals, are limbering up for the summer cocktail season when major firms throw garden parties for MPs, peers and opinion formers. Not so the pro-smoking lobby, Forest.

It has hired a Misssissippi-style paddle steamer and is going for a cruise from Westminster to Canary Wharf and back. Why? Because you can smoke on deck. But do look out for anti-smoking fanatics equipped with torpedoes.

Just off topic. Mathew Wright is asking whether smokers should be docked pay if they take smoke breaks. This topic is on at at around 10.40 am this morning.
I can't watch this stuff it just winds me up too much.

I can't bear this relentless attack on smokers - so I shan't be watching.
