I was both rather shocked and amused to hear that here in England, No Smoking signs have to be displayed inside Churches. It’s no joke. Apparently, to conform with the new ‘smoking-ban in public places rules’, even churches have to have them.
Rev Colin Slee, a senior cleric from the Dean of Southwark ignored the new rules― and stated that the local council threatened to close his church if he didn’t comply. Has the world gone mad?
We’re going to have the ridiculous prospect at the next coronation of the sovereign solemnly entering Westminster Abbey past a “No Smoking” sign.
I would have thought No smoking in churches would be obvious. No wonder people are “fuming” (sorry, I couldn’t resist the pun) 😉
