Rod Liddle on the smoking ban EDM

Here I am being interviewed by Rod Liddle for the Sunday Times - well, the new online version - which I wrote about HERE on Thursday.

The video also features interviews with Brian Binley MP, whose EDM calling for a review of the smoking ban sparked some debate this week, and Stephen Williams, the dull but worthy Lib Dem MP who recently tabled his own EDM "to recognize the success of this year's St Paul's Carnival in Bristol, which he attended alongside thousands of Bristolians".

Rod's video is seven minutes long but it fairly races along. To view it however you have to register and then pay a subscription. I opted for the 24 hour pass which costs £1.

Having negotiated Rupert Murdoch's paywall (an initiative I rather applaud) you'll find the video HERE. It's worth doing if only to add your own comment.

I recoil from the idea of putting a £1 in Rupert Murdoch's pocket.

As I put on the comments, Brian Binley is in danger of becoming a national treasure and Simon WIlliams is an ill informed buffoon.

Chris, I am sure a man worth $4 billion is not going to go mad with your quid and besides at least Murdoch is prepared to give us smokers a fair hearing unlike the socialist BBC.

I won't pay. I have to buy a tv licence just because I have a computer which is "TV receiving equipment." I've paid once to watch. I won't pay again. That is why I won't pay for Sky et al. Abolish the TV licence than I can choose what I pay to watch.

Have also commented - but joined for a month for a quid and diaried a reminder to cancel... Having mastered the Telegraph crossword I'm ready for new challenges. I cant get too prissy about Murdoch because I have Sky TV... I'd give it up - but I can't wait for season 2 of 'True Blood' - which for those of you who don't know is NOT a documentary series about the Tories....

The main problem with the Times paywall is that not as many people will get to watch this as they should!
