Steve, think I listen to as many about where you live, as you do about where we live now ... So, not smoking in enclosed public areas comes under morality and beliefs does it?? I rather think you are looking too deeply into this ... several factors influenced this decision ... Europe, that place some think we don't belong to is pushing for it generally, the lobbyists are pushing for it on behalf of the various cancer charities etc and also economics are now coming in to it. So, then, we shouldnt listen to government and save some lives, JUST IN CASE, they might try and influence everything we do ... shouldn't we therefore be wary of everything ?? You will be coming up with a conspiracy theory next!
