I assumed from the tone of tolerant Hughes that he would like a blanket ban on smoking, which is really tolerant.

I was not talking about impinging on anyone's freedom, I was merely saying that why cannot we have separate well ventilated rooms in pubs.

As for his ranting about the gay partnerships, what is this being temporarily better off than heterosexual couples? Knowing this government it is a permanent situation.

If only I was a little better off, and not hammered with all these taxes, and of course better educated, I would be on the first plane, if only to get away from the hypocritically pious people like Hughes and his kind.
