Smoking Ban

The smoking ban has damaged the pub / club industry.I think unless a pub/club serves food then the ban should be lifted and left to the discretion of the landlord.Where food is served maybe a smoking area could be made available.

Most landlords (that still have Pubs) have had to spend thousands of pounds fitting smoking shelters and heating them against our harsh winters.Surely a landlord should be able to make the decison as to wether he/she feels that their pub should be smoking or non-smoking,does his/her pub need a dedicated smoking area,should they continue to ban it in their pub or should they spend a few hundred pound installing air purifiers to combat the smoke issue.

The atmosphere in pubs/clubs has been damaged,most of the non smokers now feel like leppers because they are left sitting on their own while us smokers go for fag.A lot of non smokers actually come outside to join us when we go for fag because they dont want to be left alone.Where is the common sense in this ban. 

Why is this idea important?

Road Tax and MOT

I think that Road Tax Prices should be met at the Petrol Pump,so the more you use the road the more you pay.Those not travelling thousands of miles a year would not be hit so hard.The idea of combining TAX and MOT as one issue is great as this would effectively guarantee that a car is legal / safe to be on the road.If it is not then on the spot heavy fines and car removal.Printed Plastic / vinyl security marked discs would also stop fraud.
