Vent your spleen.

In response to an article on October 1 about smoking at St James' Park.

I wish this person and others like her would shut up and live and let live. After all it's down to freedom of choice whether to smoke or not. This person says she can't afford to smoke, but I bet she can afford to drink alcohol in pubs which I don't do but I'm not condemning anyone who does as each to their own.

So what is the problem? I'd like to point out if all smokers were forced to quit just think of the lost revenue for the Government which depends on this source of income so the country doesn't get into financial difficulties. Otherwise I guess everybody's taxes would most certainly increase to cover the loss of this cash off cigarette sales that the Government gets.

Don't start banging on about the costs of treating cancer sufferers as their mortality is nowhere as long or expensive as the writer if she gets clogged arteries, heart disease etc, plus our taxes on every packet of cigarettes pays towards treatment.

At St James' or anywhere outside there's no way she can get polluted in the fresh air as no way does cigarette smoke outweigh the atmosphere. Car fumes do though if you drive.

Also dear moaner, I will laugh at you when you have your above-mentioned health problems through your lifestyle and I haven't got wrinkly skin or hacking cough and I'm 58 years old. You are so sad whinging on and need to get a purpose in life apart from moaning. RT, Kingston Park.
