... And this is News because....?

It's perfectly legal. Sure, the health police object, but they object to beer and cake and chocolate too. We're LIBERALS, FFS. If someone is informed of the dangers of an activity and they still choose to do it, THAT'S THEIR CHOICE.

Bloody prurient curtain-twitchers can bog off, in my view.

What, is he deliberately blowing second-hand smoke over a crib full of infants or something?

I swear, people will make a "scandal" out of absolutely nothing.

Without wishing to invoke Godwin, let us not forget the two major protagonists of World War Two were a fanatically anti-smoking teetotaller and a fat bald bloke who loved half-coronas washed down with Hankey Bannister.

It is all a bit bollocks, isn't it?

And I do wonder how many of the scandal-hunters are smokers themselves. Or smokers in denial who bum cigarettes when they've had wine with friends or something.

I quit because I started self-harming with cigarette burns and it stopped the self-harming. Smoking can be a bit triggery for me as a result, but I have no real objection to it beyond that. I'm slightly stunned to find people having any real objection to Nick smoking.

Barack Obama smokes too, though rarely in photos. As someone said on the campaign trail, let him have one vice in his life or he might explode. ;)

And it sounds like the health police are considered conservative over there? Here they are liberal. Interesting.
