However there are times when direction from above is very effective and this week we’ve seen a great example.
The smoking ban in public places is one year old this week and it is reported that 400,000 smokers have quit since the ban was introduced.
That is fantastic news.
I think we should celebrate it and thank the government for the positive leadership. It’s not a party political point scoring thing on my part – just a statement of fact.
Sometimes we just have to be told what is good for us.
