That was the immediate thought when I read this 'example' of 'statist intervention'.
Mind you I suppose Liverpool City Council, seemingly comprised of 'dogs', is the only place you would find this type of dogmatic thinking.
On the basis that one would logically think the majority of under 18s that they are trying to ban are already smokers, what does this accomplish?
Are there not more pressing matters that Liverpool City Council could consider and thus engage what passes for their brains?
One senses the oncoming wrath of a Puddlecote.............
