Smoking Ban Links


Nicotine Nannies claim smoking bans are good for business. But if that were the case, could this list exist, and could it be so huge? (Please note, this is only a small sample of articles available on the subject.)

Four hours of torture

 
Friday, December 8th, 2006

A 17-year-old student was burned with a home-made flame thrower during a horrifying four-hour torture ordeal, a court heard.

Aerosol cans of air freshener and furniture polish were squirted at Katy James and the jets set alight with a naked flame. She was attacked by a gang of teenagers at the flat they shared in Burcot Lane, Bromsgrove, after her smoking was blamed for Hayley Kirby’s miscarriage.

he violence was begun by Kirby who slapped Miss James, called her a whore and branded her a murderer.

(I wonder how much of the thugs inspiration came from campaigns claiming that SHS kills. They obviously believed it.)
