There is an issue with the effect on business. I have looked at all the evidence and I must say that trying to introduce smoke-free rooms ventilated to the level that would be necessary would have a negative effect on business; there is no way that will benefit businesses.Well, why bother arguing against the bill then? If there is categorically 'no way' that it will be of benefit, no business owner will do so and all pubs would choose to remain non-smoking.
Unless, of course, he is condescendingly asserting that all pub owners are so stupid that they don't know how to run their own business like Kevin - who has never run any business in his life - obviously does.
To be fair, his bollocks were probably stinging like fuck from the attentions of the buzz-happy witch by that point, but taking all into consideration ... yes, he's a fully gulled, lack-witted helmet, isn't he?
