Smoking ban farce: Police vow to IGNORE new law coming into force tomorrow that makes it illegal to light up in cars with children
A new law against smoking in cars carrying children will not be enforced, police chiefs have admitted.
From Thursday, officers will have the power to dish out £50 on-the-spot fines.
But police bosses say they will turn a blind eye to those caught flouting the law. Drivers will instead get away with a warning – ‘education not prosecution’.
The approach is a blow to ministers who pushed through the legislation on the advice of health experts. At least three million children are thought to be exposed to dangerous fumes in their family car.
The Mail understands that private guidance to chief constables urges them to give motorists at least three months to adjust to the new law. A similar approach was taken with the workplace smoking ban in 2007.
Does that mean that after 3 months they’ll start enforcing this stupid law?
In recent years, the theory that Christianity and Islam are just two distinct paths to God among many others has rapidly gained traction all over the planet. Some religious leaders have even gone so far as to try to merge Islamic and Christian practices, and the term “Chrislam” is now often used to describe this ecumenical movement.
The Pope seems to have taken to referring to God as “the all-merciful”, just like Muslims.
I think I get the idea. Just like all the countries in Europe are to be merged into a single state, so all the religions are going to be merged into one, and part of that will probably mean getting Sharia Law and women having to wear veils and alcohol being banned. In practice it will mean everyone having to become Muslims, and Christianity being sidelined. That’s going to be great success, isn’t it? Just like the EU.
David Cameron’s visit to Jamaica threatens to become overshadowed by calls for Britain to issue a full apology for the slave trade and to pay billions of pounds in reparations.
I guess then we can demand that the Italians issue a full apology for the Roman invasion of Britain in 43 A.D., and demand they pay hundreds of billions of pounds in reparations for staying for another 300 or 400 years, and leaving the country littered with roads, towns, and villas.
And last but not least:
