Rookverbod in buitenlucht voor pub

Een pubeigenaar in West Dublin lijkt een rookverbod in de buitenlucht vóór zijn pub boven het hoofd te hangen. De rokende bezoekers maken zóveel lawaai dat de buren begonnen te klagen.

“If they ban people from smoking outside it will show how ridiculous the ban is. It’s difficult enough policing inside, now they want us to tell people they can’t smoke outside as well!”

An Irish licensee has been served with an injunction banning customers from smoking outside his pub.

Tom Magher, licensee at the Hartstown House in Clonsilla, West Dublin, was summoned to court last week to be told smokers causing a nuisance when they stepped outside would have to stop.

The case was heard on Wednesday and adjourned for two weeks, but Mr Magher is hoping he will eventually lose. He is confident that should the outside smoking ban stand it will prove the new law is not workable.

  • I've alllllllways said that asking smokers "do you want to quit?" and reporting the results of that question, as is, is horribly misleading. It's a TWO part question. After asking if one wants to quit it must be followed up with "Why?" Ask why and the majority of the answers will be "because I'm supposed to" (victims of guilt and propaganda), not "because I want to."
