    Scottish smoking ban begins

    Politics.co.uk reports on the first day of the Scottish smoking ban:

    The ban covers smoking in enclosed workplaces and was designed to protect bartenders and other workers from second-hand smoke.

    Ignoring the ban will cost punters £50 for lighting up in nearly every enclosed public place.

    First minister Jack McConnell said it was is time for "drastic" action to change the health crisis situation for future generations, as Scotland had a higher rate of heart disease, cancer and of strokes than most other European countries.

    The British Heart Foundation proclaimed today as an "historic day for Scotland".

    It's historic all right, Truth Seeker, but did you have to remind me?
