And now it's the turn of the English

Trixy at More To Life Than Shoes is annoyed, although it is not yet because of the nicotine withdrawal...
Forgive me if my typing is not so accurate today: I am combining writing this post with smoking a delightful cigarette. In the office. I felt that I had better make the most of it before that malevolent witch Patsy Hewitt makes it illegal to do so.

Of course, as in Scotland, prisoners are to be able to smoke in their cells.
Right. So some criminal who would probably have to have murdered 25 people, raped a few children and mugged the entire population of Kent to actually end up in prison can smoke, but I can't.
...

Because as much as Mrs Hewitt hates smokers, and peers out of the window of the dept of health giving her evil glare to anyone in Main Building nipping outside for some 'fresh air', she needs us smokers to fund her department and the establishment which she is slowly running into the ground.

Go and read the whole thing...

The prison rule is more to do with deterring riots and guard-beatings than any desire to be nice to prisoners...
