From The Scotsman:
The ban, which was passed unanimously at a cabinet meeting of Redbridge Council last night, means that children in the east London borough will not be placed with foster carers who smoke after January 2010.
Councillors say the move is crucial in protecting children.
I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, children shouldn’t be inhaling second-hand smoke because it is a health risk. On the other hand, this is discrimination, isn’t it? I’m actually a big smoker’s rights guy in certain areas. For example, I think it should be legal for me to start an airline that lets people smoke
