Uk smokers

Looks like the observer called it right and there will be a few unhappy bunnies over at harry's place.
Still its nice that for a very odd time in our political existence we have exported a major policy position to Britain and not the other way around. I chersih the thought of Mcdowell arguing the case for mandatory ID cards on the grounds of a terrorist threat to us from Algeria. You might scoff but if he can chance his arm with those bloody ASBOs then he will have little quibbles with enforcing state observation and interference.
Look out also for the election tactics being imported for 2007. one wonders why the brits still see us as part of the empire...
