My idea is important because the general public is confused. Many people think that Part 1 of Chapter 28 of the Health Act 2006 was enacted in order to ensure that persons entering 'public' places were to be protected from tobacco smoke – not only in health aspects, but also in unpleasant smell aspects, etc.. That is simply not true. The intention of The Act was simply and solely to protect EMPLOYEES from the dangerous consequences of working in a 'smoky' place. That is all.
I dare to say that most MPs did not know this at the time when the Health Act 2006 was enacted. They were conned. That is not to say that they were INTENTIONALLY conned by Ministers – it is simply that Ministers did not know that they were regarded by the Medical Establishment as useful fools.
I know that Cabinet Ministers and MPs will find it difficult to accept that they have been regarded as useful fools by the Medical Establishment. But if they really think about the exagerations of the harmful effects of passive smoking and many other exageraations (eg. global warming) , they may possibly stop being useful fools.
