Non-smokers have rights too

It was a lovely sunny day in Bexhill so I decided to treat myself to a coffee in town.

As the weather was so lovely I took my coffee outside – heaven until a rowdy group of smokers arrived, three women and one male.

They all lit up the male continually puffing on one of those ridiculous electronic devices.

Eventually when everyone else was on their second or third cigarette the male proceeded to light up an actual cigarette which never left his mouth which he opened just enough to exhale even more fumes into the atmosphere. The cigarette was demolished in seconds and a replacement electronic one was hurriedly inserted.

Surely it is time that all smoking in public places, especially outside restaurants where people eat alfresco, is stopped.

Non smokers have rights too!
