No smoke without ire!

OVERHEAD the latter part of a conversation between two old geezers on the No4 bus the other day.

One could surmise they had been discussing one of Nigel Farage’s policies to reverse the smoking ban in pubs (which obviously would be a backward step!)

Anyway, one of them seemed to come to a conclusion by saying you have to die of something, whether it’s from smoking, drinking or eating too many jelly babies.

Nevertheless, as mother used to say, it’s not the cough that carries you off, it’s the coffin they carry you off in.
