No Smoking (Also No Drinking or Eating)

Smoking Ban Ad

Starting today
Smoking in public places
I don't have anything against the new anti-smoking regulation (Prohibition of Smoking in Public Places Rules, 2008) but one clause seems a little overboard:

Rule 4(3):
A smoking area or space shall be used only for the purpose of smoking and no other service(s) shall be allowed. [PDF link]

It technically means that when you smoke, you smoke, don't eat or drink.

And I hate those photos of ministers (and other political leaders) appearing in all government ads. Their face value actually have a diminising effect on the message.
