When? We dunno yet, but "before the next election" which basically means in the next 12 months or so.
 
It doesn't affect me: I gave up in 2004, but ... what do you think? Is this a massive violation of your rights? Or preventing a violation of the rights of children to breathe "good" air?
 
Does it work? I know it's been illegal in parts of Australia for 5 or more years, so does it affect anyone here?
 
I remember that when I was a kid, my Mum and my Dad smoked like chimneys, and on long journeys it was hard to see across the car at times...and yes, that probably did contribute to me becoming a smoker later on in life, but I can't say it definitely did.
