David Hockney fumes over smoking ban

In today's Daily Mail, David Hockney calls for the country's smokers to unite:

'Artist David Hockney says he is "appalled" that the country's 12 million smokers did not stick up for themselves over the smoking ban.

He spoke as the Government announced smoking in enclosed public areas and workplaces will be banned in England from 1 July next year.

Hockney said he will not quit his 50-year habit, adding: "I feel I'm powerless. Pubs aren't health clubs. What do you go to a pub for? "You have an area where people can smoke and an area where people can't smoke. That's what a decent country would do."
