Re: Smoking at bars with terraces

You can imagine the response of the owner- complaining would be futile.
The no smoking law was brought in for a reason.No one should have to avoid a place because it is breaking the law. A fine would set a precedent- bet you'd see the sides roll up then!

There is obviously a need for clarification on this rule, as it is being abused, and any loopholes should be stopped.Clients should not have to endure a smoke filled"tent" when passing through, and staff should not be put at risk by working in a smokey atmosphere. The NO Smoking law was brought in f...

Re: Has there been a change to Spanish succession law recent

If this new law doesn't come into effect till 2015, then why have I read in various articles that it is being applied now? Is this to make people pay out for a new will? So, if a partner dies now, and the clause isn't in the will now, i assume effects will still be distributed under British law? The...
