It's not often someone has the balls to stand up for smokers' rights these days so it was heart-warming to read this story here about a German employer who sacked three of his non-smoking employees for threatening to kick up a fuss if smoking was not banned in the office.
"I can't be bothered with trouble-makers," the employer said. "We're on the phone all the time and it's just easier to work while smoking.
"Everyone picks on smokers these days. It's time for revenge. I'm only going to hire smokers from now on."
Germany banned smoking from most public places including bars and restaurants on January 1 but businesses with less than 10 employees can allow smoking in the office.
I find anti-smokers as detestable as racists running around, as they do, on their high horses on their moral high ground.
Smoking is disease which many people want to be cured from. Instead of getting all high and mighty non-smokers should be quietly trying to help people give up.
Most smokers want to give up and they need encouragement and help - not aggression and surrogate racism.
Check out the following for a better picture of the smoking ban sweeping Europe and beyond.
