Wetherspoon pubs to ban smoking

Wetherspoon pubs to ban smoking

This is how smoking bans should be – driven by the economy, not Governmental edict. This is a very brave decision for Wetherspoons to take, but I think it will improve their sales in the long term. If given the choice, I’d always eat in a no-smoking place, so certainly that plank of their business shouldn’t be harmed, and could be improved. And I don’t think the boozy side will be particularly hit either, personally.

Hopefully, this will encourage others to follow, and we’ll have a naturally introduced smoking ban, just as I’ve often suggested. And then I’ll be happy.

Smoking ban will work only if it is total, any partial ban will fail as efforts will be made to find loop holes.
