    why's he whinging , at the end of the day we all know the decision rests with the landlord of the pub/bar. Managment refuse the right etc...

    If the guys never had problems "at other venues" then i suggest to stick to those venues in the future :)

    I am very concerned. I heard they still serve alcohol in some pubs. There should be a law banning this. For public health reasons and general good.

    Hopefully the pub will loose all the smokers to other pubs and close.

    The vote is very close at the moment, 48% in agreement of a ban & 52% against.

    The vaping community needs you all to vote :)

    I really don't see why one should be upset about not being allowed to vape at a pub.

    It's not the vaper's property and it causes confusion.
    Besides, all the rest of the smokers go outside so what's wrong with joining them?

    I thought at first you were using "pub" as shortened form for "public" and I freaked out. XD

    IMO the pub owner should invest in e-cigs so the confusion ends.

    What's going on while I logged onto that site to make a comment ...the voting went shooting up to 63 % in favour of banning e-cigs?????????????????????

    I'm wondering the same thing Pete. I put a link to it in my eBay e-cig group & I know for certain that at least one person has voted against the ban within the last few minutes.

    It makes me feel like it's some kind of conspiracy rather than an honest vote.

    I'm thinking the same thing Pete. Especially as most of the comments left are in favour of the e-cig & against the ban.

    Maybe the harvester pub chain are voting yes to the ban to save face?

    Just wondering what colour LED/ body of Ecig the person was using.

    Ive always had less hassle/stern looks when ive been using the red or black coloured bodies with blue LEDs.

    It's probably a case of an ethically conservative mailing list / phone tree that got activated and people are voting who don't know anything about the issue. They were just told to go to the URL and vote for the ban. This happens a lot with open internet polls. We were essentially doing the same thing, being encouraged to vote in a local poll. There's no way to win these things, and they are so unscientific and statistically tainted that they are irrelevant anyway.
