Juliarrrr, get your state government to enforce the law. The hostpitals are their's and the police force is their's.James W Wednesday 9 January, 2013 - 8:17 AM
Justin J James yes it is terrible... "I look forward to fines being issued or abolish bloody cigarette sales altogether." Thaat would be entirely appropriate. Don't stand on 1 leg waiting, this is all merely a Labor taxing feel good exercise by those stupid idiot Labor hypocrites in government. The incompetent movers and shakers can't even stop all the crimes, shootings on our damned streets. Obviously poisonous cigarettes should not be allowed any where near a bloody hospital and no doubt all good doctors would welcome that! Even the damned prisons are/have completely banning unhealthy deadly cigarettes...JULIARRRR Tuesday 8 January, 2013 - 1:39 PM
The money goes to pay our bills Jester, it's all part of the $315Bn per year tax take. Paying for health care is no small part of our expenses.James W Tuesday 8 January, 2013 - 8:30 AM
@Juliarr - we have the same problem at most hospitals so you're not Robinson Cruso. Here on the central coast there has been signage up for years banning smoking in and around hospitals. Yet every time I go to visit someone there, one has to wade through the rotten damned cigarette smoke at almost every external door opening. Patients of hospital there minus legs, arms and whatever else smoking themselves stupid. They just do not learn. I look forward to fines being issued or abolish bloody cigarette sales altogether.Justin J James Monday 7 January, 2013 - 10:00 PM
Unfortunately no government would never have the guts to ban these rotten things as they depend on the tax for revenue! Only question is, where does the money go?Jester4212 Monday 7 January, 2013 - 2:04 PM
The big question is will these smoking bans be enforced??? I can't see this smoking ban happening right outside the front doors of Westmead and Blacktown Hospitals. When you walk in and out of these damned places the smoke is bloody horrible around the entrance doorways with patients and staff hanging about smoking with their poisonous smoke pouring into your gasping mouth. Many complaints have already been made but on completely deaf ears. Clearly deadly cigarettes are downright poisonous and therefore not fit for any human consumption. The false pretentious Labor government are pussy footing about with this crucial issue and are completely ignoring this fact. Otherwise Labor would take the initiative and completely ban the sale of cigarettes...JULIARRR Monday 7 January, 2013 - 11:04 AM
