9th November 2008 :: Equal opportunity for smokers

Over the years we have learned or should I say, strived to become more and more politically correct. A good thing that came out of it is all people being treated equally, at least in theory if not in practice. On the 2nd of October this year, the government banned smoking in all public places. Smoking is banned in public places, not altogether and the sale, manufacture and consumption of tobacco are still legal. In my opinion any employer that calls itself an equal opportunity employer need to provide a place to smoke to its employees who smoke. By not doing so, they are discriminating against smokers. This is my opinion and I am sure smokers will agree with me and for the non smokers, think it neutrally before you say what I am suggesting is outrageous. After all we are living in a nation where a person who can't tell his own arse from a hole in the ground becomes a surgeon, just because he belongs to a particular class.
