I think it clearly shows that smokers are so dangerous that they shouldn't be allowed to pursue their grubby little habit anywhere!

In her autobiography: In the centre of the bed (2004), Joan Bakewell say that she was up to 40 a day at one time and look what has happened to her.

Dissappointing. I was hoping this would be "smokers outside pub killed in flash floods".

Huh - how do you get a gun into a nightclub given their propensity to search every pocket and body cavity for half centimeter pills and wraps of coke?

A list on the web with everything nominated for banning would provide a great public service.

"Tim adds:Go for it, why not?"

Well, it ought to be based on a wiki for user-generated content. In which case it should be bansturpedia.org.
