Joke of the day

KRAKOW TOURS – The lower house of the Polish parliament came to a very bewildering decision, this week, over the proposed bill banning smoking in public places.

The bill, that would have brought Poland in line with other EU countries, was amended very liberally by Sejm (the lower house of parliament) now allows the owners of pubs and restaurants to decide for themselves whether they allow smoking on their premises.

I ask, what is the point of having a law that allows owners to now do something that was, and is, surely their right anyway. Why not pass a bill that allows the public to either walk or take a bus, or allow motorists to drive a car of the colour of their own choice.

It’s a pathetic watering down of an EU policy, whilst I don’t agree with the majority of EU policies, i quite like this one and it’s a shame (from my point of view) that Poland has decided to waste this opportunity to make their many great bars and restaurants a more pleasurable experience for non smokers.
