No Smoking in Public Places - Honestly- 10 January 2011
  For those of you out there that intend on living forever, don't eat red meat, don't drink, eat your five a day, and generally do everything the government tells you to do so that you can live until you are 120 you had probably better stop reading this now. If however, you enjoy all good things in life read on. Before I start I should point out that although I am a smoker, I realise that it is bad for my health and probably those around me, but so are lots of things, cars kill more people than smoking and they haven't banned driving in public places just yet. (except Sake - I know)

I live in the south of Bulgaria, whose main income is the cash crop tobacco. Now I am sure there are vegatarian beef farmers, lacto intolerant dairy farmers. but in Southern Bulgaria non smoking tobacco farmers just don't exist.

Bulgaria joined the EU in 2007 and has enjoyed, mostly, the infrastructure hand outs (after their politicians have taken a cut).

As from 1 Jan 2011 coming into line with European policy, Bulgaria has adopted a no smoking in public places policy - almost. This when introduced in the UK, regardless of what the government tells you did not increase the takings at your local pub. The UK had approximately 25% of the adult population that were smokers, the policy was adopted from our special relationship legal advisors over the pond, was, not to improve the publics health (does the government really want people living too far past retirement), but was to avoid expensive lawsuits from non-smoking bar staff.

So as Bulgaria has introduced a smoking ban, instead of being completely ban all smoking as its a horrible dirty habit, this is how they have done it www.novinite.com - common sense at last, let the person who runs the bars decide. I will never say a bad thing about Bulgarian politicians again! (maybe)
