They wont be exempt. They have just been given an extra year to comply. During this time all Submariners will be 'encouraged' and 'assisted' to give up smoking.
 
I went on my sons bomber a couple of years age and there was a smoking hole down where the gash was ditched.quite well used in fact including the xo,mind you it was small,i think half a dozen at a time would be max.

I suppose it will depend on wether the Skipper is a smoker or not,plus when some people give up smoking it can make them a bit snappy and that cannot be good in a confined space

How the hell is any politically correct politician gonna find out about people smoking on submarines in the first place? Well I suppose someone might squeal if they didn't get enough curry on a wednesday.

Have you not found out yet "a true friend is not a person who knows where you buried a body. It is only the person who helped you bury the body"

They have given me a plasic fag with nicotine inserts.

Damned hard to light, smells terrible, lots of thick black smoke and not reusable asit says on the tin :wink:
 
How will boats produce smoke signals without smokers! :wink: :grin: It's skimmers that will really suffer though. What about creating smoke screens to hide their position from an enemy... no longer will they have the smokers union puffing away at the stern, now they'll have to use expensive smoke cannisters! :shock: Don't HMG realise this is going to add to the procurement budget! :roll: :lol:

When will the politicoes practice what they preach. I have been informed that the palace of westminister has its smoking area's (including a bar or 2) and will continue to have them after the ban on smoking in bars and the workplace comes into effect.

a case of do as we say not as we do
