He got told off by police for smoking on a train (out of the window).
I love idiot politicians.
its gaining the sympathy of a large number of people in the country, without compromising his own liberal policies too greatly. Shame hes not leading the party anymore. Hello smokers vote.
are there that many smokers who would vote for a party just cos they would get rid of the ban?
I seriously doubt it.
but he is gaining a lot of sympathy. And i do know people whove switched their votes for less...
If he decided his main policy would be to reverse the smoking band he of course faces the ire of non-smokers who care.
