Norway looking to regulate "social pastime"

I don't smoke. But if you do, and you've always wanted to visit Norway, you had better go before they enact a total smoking ban on the country's restaurants, bars, and caf?s. Evidently, the Norwegian ban is also intended to "de-normalize smoking as a social pastime". Noble intentions to be sure, but this illustrates yet another move by a government to change a lifestyle by force.

U.K. politicians have a better idea:

Britain, however, is unlikely to do likewise. Ministers have made it clear they favour voluntary smoking bans - fearful that they will be accused of running a "nanny state".
