A Box for Smokers

Smokers at a village pub will have to sit in a glass box if they want to enjoy a cigarette next year reports the Lincolnshire Echo in this story.

The Echo informs its readers that The Becke Arms, in Cherry Willingham near Lincoln is preparing for next year's national smoking ban by putting up the unusual structure.

I'm probably the last person to comment on this story as a smoker who had my last drag 25 years ago.

I'm delighted that smoking is to be banned in pubs.

But I couldn't help thinking that rather than a glass box, a wooden one would have been more appropriate.

So you ask for a box of Swans.

Then you swan into the box.
