Vanishing act

The second reading of Tracy Brabin’s bill to ban smoking on hospital premises has been delayed for a second time.

Originally scheduled for Friday March 15, it was then listed for today, March 22.

Yesterday however it suddenly disappeared from the order of business.

Although the Smoking Prohibition (National Health Service Premises) Bill has very little chance of becoming law, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t curious to know what’s going on.

I am not curious. Every new step to bully smokers frightens the life out of me. This will come up again. If not now then another time, and another, and another, until the smokerphobic thugs get what they want.

For now though, perhaps we should just be grateful that Government isn't quite ready to discriminate against us further by signing up to Trust puppet Brabin's spite.
