This seems to be getting a little personal around here...
Anyhoo I realised that I had a nice little example of why I abhor politicians so much... a response to a petition which I signed in favour of allowing smoking in private establishments. It was hardly a petition of the sort of numbers needed for a change in the law but I was working under the false assumption that the government gave half a monkey about one of it's people, nevermind a congregation of them. However I was obviously wrong.

Now I don't care about steps on roads to anywhere, I care about people acting outside of their remit and frankly I think it's about frickin time that people started looking at what is being passed with their supposed support. I know that I never looked at a manifesto with a look to "now who do I think will look after my health best?". Maybe healthcare, yes but my health is my own frickin business as is everyone's. Fine support more measures to support non smokers and non smoking establishments but just to "do the right thing" like this is stepping over their bounds.
