Lighting up Barnsley

There’s been plenty of comment on this story about the Barnsley licensee who has allowed supposedly legal indoor smoking in her pub by designating the tap room a “smoking research centre”. No doubt the local Gauleiter will be round before too long to close it down and drive all the customers away, but it does underline very clearly that there remains a substantial unmet demand for smoking in pubs.

  1. Quite so. One only has to read the reaction by commenters to this story wherever it is reported. For example, here and here the vast majority favour a reform of the law to allow more choice.
