Smoking banned

Smoking is banned in all pubs and clubs. They still allow you some freedom in your own property since you can still smoke at home and
No decision has yet been made on whether smoking will be banned in cars carrying passengers.
But as Samizdata notes there is one confined space where smoking will still be allowed
The Home Office is not about to ban smoking in prisons.

But what about the health of non-smoking prisoners in the confined space? What about passive smoking by prison officers, whose workplace it is? N'importe. The tobacco allowance in prison is a means of control used by the authorities. Removing it would remove something of their capacity for arbitrary reward and punishment of individual prisoners.
So dangerous pleasures are bad. Unless they give the state leverage to control you, when they are good. Very New Labour.
