"The first minister expects the early days of Scotland's smoking ban to be fraught with problems.Very sensible - otherwise it won't be fines that are getting slapped down.
Jack McConnell has urged officers enforcing the ban to go softly at first - advising and warning - rather than slapping down fines."
Actually, I predict general success for the ban; even some of my friends who smoke think it's a good idea- the saddos.
Jack McConnell - our illustrious First Minister. He looks completely mental in that picture, don'tcha think? One fears he may have lost his damn mind.
