Seriously…how much? I would say just a tad should do the trick.
So why, oh why, oh why, are some people still either too thick or too inconsiderate to merit a new law having to be passed to stop them from killing children?
I have no problem with anyone who wants to smoke, as long as I don’t have to be contaminated by the cancerous air around them. If they want to deliberately kill themselves, then be my guest. And yes, they do know they’re killing themselves with those cosy white little cancer sticks.
Smoking was already banned in taxis, buses and vans, because of smokers’ thoughtlessness. But from Thursday October 1 a new law came into effect in the UK, preventing morons and idiots from smoking in a private car that has passengers in it under the age of 18.
So come on, those of you who smoke in cars with children in, tell me why you do that. More than 80 per cent of so-called secondhand smoke is invisible and odourless, so no matter how careful you think you’re being, your family still breathes in its harmful poisons, putting them at risk of meningitis, bronchitis and pneumonia, as well as cancer.
But, really, wouldn’t you think that knowing the harm secondhand smoke has on non-smokers who are unlucky enough to be in the vicinity of these carcinogenic-spreading dipsticks (my definition of dipsticks: those who smoke cancer sticks, not the cancer sticks themselves), would be enough?
This new law shouldn’t really be necessary, because the smoker should have more common sense and decency than to inflict cancer on their own children.
But many don’t. Do they?
