    Is it the end for the monarchy? At 6am on Monday 2nd July, all Sovereigns and Royals will be banned from most public places in the whole of Britain!

    I hear the Duke of Marlboro isn't too chuffed about it.

    Am I right in thinking it will affect JP'S, and all staff that work in the Embassy?

    I'd got all excited then. From reading the thread title I didn't realise it was about smoking, thought the country had finally seen sense. Oh well, at least I can moan about the monarchy without somebody poisoning my lungs now! Will be great in the pub, let the Schadenfreude commence.

    Was fantastic yesterday, went to the pub after a concert and when I left I didn't stink of other people's fags! :clap:

    At least you won't have to put up with any Camels and no more getting bugged for Raffles

    And of course Hamlet can only be performed in the open air

    Our after rehersal pint on monday was certainly different. You could clearly see the other side of the pub without the usual thick smelly fog of fag smoke but I still wouldn't say it was pleasant. The place reeked of stale beer and damp carpets which the cigarettes used to disguise.
    But I agree - it was nice to go home without smelly clothes.:tup

    But you still have to get past everyone who are stood on the pavement having a last gasp before another "pint".
