Smoking Ban Up In Smoke

 

Updated : May 13, 2009

VeryHappyPig isn’t a smoker. We pigs believe our body is a temple and we should keep it clean and fit to be worshiped! So needless to say when the smoking ban came in VHP wasn’t too upset.

Rather, as time has gone by VHP has become quiet fond of the ban, albeit for all the wrong reasons!

VHP loves the smoking area. It’s provides the best pub platform to meet women. VeryHappyPig can often been seen smoking one of those joke toy cigarettes in the huts, shelters and sheds that are called smoking foyers asking beautiful women for a light. Then again VHP certainly wouldn’t lock lips with a smoker. VHP kissed an ashtray involuntarily once and would not repeat the offence of our own free will.

Anyway for pub loving smokers out there, VeryHappyPig may have found the happiest of happy news for you after a Barnsley landlady has told regulars they can smoke in her pub - as customer found a loophole in the law.

Kerry Fenton's tap room has been turned into a 'Smoking Research Centre', reports The Sun.

Customers have to fill in a questionnaire on their smoking habits to satisfy legal requirements, then they can have a cigarette with their drink.

Ms Fenton, 36, claims trade has doubled at the Cutting Edge at Worsbrough since she launched the centre five days ago.

She said: "It's given business a shot in the arm and it's all in the name of research, legal and above aboard. I'm a non-smoker but I believe in the freedom of the individual."

Printer James Martin, 40, studied the smoking ban and believes a research centre can be introduced if a building has a separate room and no through bar.

He said: "I wanted a pub to smoke in before they all closed down. I studied details of the act closely, we drew up questionnaires and it's taken off in a big way.

"I've had inquiries from other pubs about introducing research centres and Im expecting many more to join in."

But Barnsley Council says it plans to enforce the ban. Regulations chief Simon Frow said: "The Cutting Edge is clearly not a research or test facility and is not exempt under the legislation."
