Govt. to tighten no smoking law

  • 12 Sep 2007 04:46:19 GMT

    Well since they are good at putting up acts and laws and everything under the sun to govern the citizens...why not put and act to stop corruption, skim offs, bribes etc that the politicians are very good at and causes greater damage to the country...

    I`m all for the booze/smoke laws etc as long the big shots nad their spoilt brats also fall under the same net...

    right now...there`s one law for the common man.. and another for the `known man`...

    until those are fixed...these laws wont work cos people won`t have respect for them

    Isn`t this the same Minister who only recently exhorted others to have one partner for sex when he has a reputation with women?

    Now he wants smoking banned on roads and lanes because people like him, the rich and the powerful, will NEVER be seen walking on the roads or lanes. How smart of him to introduce laws that apply ONLY to the common man and not to the rich and powerful scoundrels like him?

    It`s because the majority of the `Common Men and Women` found in Sri Lanka are purely imbecile idiots that scoundrels like these ministers are in power!

    KK... it think it`s like choosing the slightly better evil over the other in my opinion...

    And people always tends to hope that someone will come and change things for the better... sadly this never happens

    Nimal Siripala de silva should get his butt out from the Parliament before he asks others to butt out.Do you honestly think we have enough policemen and policewomen to go after the faggers. Its a joke!!!

    How can the people observe these laws when the politician and their families are breaking all the laws in the

    country?Pulling guns, hitting anyone beyond recognition

    and pushing their weight around.How come they have very

    special laws?

    Will the Minister introduce laws to punish the overweights? Aren`t they a burden to themselves and a heavy strain on the Health services?

    Critic,

    [Do you honestly think we have enough policemen and policewomen to go after the faggers.]

    The Police is supposed to be currently recruiting to set up a new `Cigarette Police` (like the `Traffic Police`) to combat public fagging!

    A new `Cigarette Magistrates Court` like the `Traffic Magistrates Court` would also be set up for prosecution and sentence.

    [Its very good to control smoking and using alcohol in public, I`ll be very glad if we could succeed in this...but what if the governing body (police and politicians..) who impose such rules are the main violators thereto????? they know hat no body will ask them or punish them if they do so...so they will do it in public.....

    I don`t care who is trying to impose this....anyway...its a great approach...best of luck]
