One small step? Or a Giant leap?

The result of the Swiss vote today seems really sane to me - I am pleased for once. The UK Government should take note. When Cameron came to power, I remember a reassessing of the smoking ban was promised. What happened?  Well, like many other promises and my vote in the future, it all went to pot.

It would be nice to live in a democracy instead of a lobbyocracy. 

Surely our politicians realise who manipulates them?  And how corrupt a lobbyocracy is? And how, to be a politician in a lobbyocracy you have to be specially adept at NOT getting yourself hoodwinked by sockpuppets?

Review the smoking ban like you promised!
