No Smoking Please, We're British

In England, the parliment has voted for a blanket smoking ban in public places.

From The Guardian, 3/06:

"A total ban on smoking inside offices, pubs, restaurants and 'virtually every enclosed public place and workplace' throughout England will come into force in the summer of 2007 after a resounding cross-party majority of MPs yesterday rejected last minute compromises designed to exempt some pubs and private clubs."
