    Thumbs down Ban smoking in all vehicles, doctors demand

    Smoking should be banned in all cars as well as in public places where young people congregate, doctors are urging.

    The Royal College of Physicians wants England's imminent review of anti-smoking laws to consider such measures to protect the young.

    It says passive smoking results in 300,000 extra child visits to GPs in the UK every year for problems such as asthma and bacterial meningitis.

    But driving and smoking lobby groups say cars are a "private space".

    I can understand the sentiment where young children are concerned as they have no right to refuse to enter but this is a step too far. Not only is the idea of a ban in private space totally idiotic but hugely unenforcible - and I'm not a smoker..

    Smoking in any location where children are a captive audience is child abuse, plain and simple.

    Welcome to the future, where our loving government nannies will set rules, fine you, and even imprison you, because, after all, they love you, and want you to be a part of their robotic ant farm, where everybody loves everybody. Don't complain. They are doing this for your own good. Don't worry about it. Just be happy, and take a pill. The blue one will do quite nicely.

    And what about the hundreds of other harmful chemicals we expose our children to on a daily basis? Will the banning of carpet or perfume be next? Im not denying that second hand smoke is harmful but I do not feel it is simply the red headed step child of society. We will hammer smoking yet ignore most everything else.
