The attack on property rights

There are only a couple of weeks to go before it becomes illegal for publicans to allow smoking in their premises. I understand that several Scottish pubs are planning a big send off for yet another of our liberties. Apparently, quite a few are going to hold big smoking events on the final night with private "lock-ins" taking place up to the last minute.

Incidentally, I went into a very traditional working class pub on Leith Walk last week. It was filled with smokers. I discovered that there's a lot of anger in this solidly Labour-voting part of town. Let's hope that the Labour vote disappears - in a puff of smoke, so to speak.

But if they don't want to vote for a banning party who do they vote for?The Tories didn't really push against the politician's concensus here.
