Rulers of country that is home to more than 300 million smokers mull ban that could be implemented within a year
I think I’d be more impressed with the proposed ban if:
1) The general quality of the air wasn’t already so toxic you’ll probably still end up with a smoker’s cough and eventually getting lung cancer anyway.
2) I hadn’t on numerous occasions seen Chinese people smoking right in front of No Smoking signs while I lived there.
3) A friend of a friend hadn’t once been offered a bribe by a rich person so that he might be allowed to smoke in a restaurant that had a no smoking policy.
Needless to say, I’m sceptical.
