Take Home Trouble

Fire chief tells public to drink less after spate of deadly blazes - Scotsman.com News

Brian Sweeney, chief officer of Strathclyde Fire & Rescue, said Scottish society had to accept that alcohol misuse, not economic troubles, were the "greatest crisis" facing the country.
He added that moves to ban smoking in public had made the habit "almost socially unacceptable" and advocated that steps be taken to alter the way ordinary Scots drink.
However, a leading licensed trade body said that an increase in house fires was "one of the consequences" of the fact Scotland had become a "nation of take-home drinkers" after smoking was banned in pubs.


One would think that a fire chief might be aware that fires are caused by burning things rather than liquid things. Now, had he said people should stop SMOKING at home, that might have been less risible.

But only marginally less so.

how about just smoking responsibly, big ashtrays, a last sweep visually before bed, its not so hard..
