Britain must be one of the most intollerant places to live in the world.
People just wont mind their own business and let people lead their own lives, Its ok having smoking bans and condemning smokers to a dogs life: but when the dogooders and treehuggers finally want laws to outlaw your little vice dont come crying to us smokers.
I have been reading what some hoteliers think about smokers and dont think it has gone unoticed by your ex clientelle.
The effects of the ban wont be fully seen for a long time yet because of certain factors that make it hard to accertain if the stats appertaining to the liesure industry bare out the opinion of some people that it will increase and not decrease the holiday industry in this country.
I and many people will be heading for the sun and more tollerant places to Holiday in the Med this time, its sad because we had fond memories of a much easier going people of Blackpool.
Take some advice and dont invest in modernising your Hotels people will stay at home in droves when it sinks in that they are paying the same price to sit outside to have a smoke. we are slow to catch on here in the UK but once it sinks in you Hoteliers will be fighting to get us back.
