Three cheers/coughs for smog at The Bell
I discovered in The Bell, the other day, something that had been puzzling me for a long time. Standing at the bar staring at my pint of Guinness, I casually looked up, and to my amazement I could see the other end as a clear as crystal. So being alone in this atmospheric clean zone, I asked the only other occupant, the barmaid "where's all the haze gone?".
She retorted "in the garden".
So out I went for a roll up. You know you could hardly see for looking. It was like an old time London smog.
All 'me muckers' were there, teeth chattering, not with words, but the cold and the wet. And now I hear some plonkers want to stop us smoking in the great outdoors in case we catch a cold or pneumonia.

Time to ring 'the bell' on these 'clean-air-the-world's-collapsing- through-global-warming- mummy- knows-best-do-gooders'.
They can have spotlessly clean and empty pubs collapsing at the rate of 40 a week, or they can have lots of welcoming hostelries with loads of mouths filled with little white ignited sticks slurping copious amounts of plonk, having a jolly time theoretically changing the world, paying loads of tax dosh to keep the NHS going.
They can't have both. So it seems like another great British tradition is about to disappear, not that you'd notice unless you went into the smoke free environment of The Bell.
