Rural pubs will suffer from smoking ban

England’s country pubs are likely to bear the brunt of any closures after the introduction of the smoking ban this summer, according to Irish publicans.

As pubs prepare for the implementation of the ban on July 1, the warnings from rural Ireland were backed by official figures from Dublin showing that country pubs were shutting at a record rate.

I suppose I will have to drink more beer to keep my local open then, whilst the smokers stay at home beating their children and poisoning their wives (I gather from the impeccable research this is what they do in the few short months they live between taking up the weed and suffering an horrendous death).


No doubt the same nannies who object to smoking in pubs will be protesting about owners wanting to convert pubs into private residences.
