Scotland the Brave? More Like Scotland the Whipped

From today's issue of the Daily Record:
    Scotland's smoking ban--one year old today--has been declared an overwhelming success. But doctors are already calling for even tougher measures, including licensing shops to sell cigarettes.
The Scots used to have heroes like William Wallace. Now, they look up to doughy twits like Health Minister Andy Kerr for leadership.

Perhaps a brief lesson in Scottish history will help put things into perspective...

The 1300s:
    "They may take our lives, but they will never take our freedom!"
    "Scotland was the first part of the UK to go smoke-free and I look forward to England, Wales and Northern Ireland following suit."
Just exactly when did real men become extinct?

Tough to be a smoker these days! Some are being driven to desparate measures!

Fortunately, these laws have finally convinced me not to start smoking!
