Greek Smoking Ban (2)
So the Greek Smoking Ban (2) bites the dust, as we all knew it would. I'm not talking about airports and touristy places. I'm talking about out here in the sticks, where the normal people live. Fair enough, Greece has been nabbed by its European partners for fiddling the books, and is now paying the price. This was bound to happen, sooner or later, when fiscal control was handed over to Brussels. But the smoking ban is something else. It's being policed by the Greeks themselves. And no European partner/ally/comrade/foreigner is going to tell them they can't have a smoke when they go out for a coffee.
