Labour 'double standards' as smoking ban is lifted for G20 world leaders
Labour has been accused of double standards for amending legislation to allow world leaders to use smoking rooms during the G20 economic conference.
Dozens of heads of state, politicians and diplomats will be meeting at the Excel Exhibition Centre in Docklands, London, next month.
It is believed that laws have been changed to get around the smoking ban and provide specialist rooms that the visiting dignitaries can use.

What do you expect, it's New Labour who are absolute hypocrites. Then again if they want to smoke, then lets leave them to it. It just increases their chances of getting cancer or some other illness which in itself increases the odds of them departing this planet a lot quicker than normal, which as far as I'm concerned is a good thing for the rest of us.
