Letter: What's stylish in smoking yourself to death?

I Was most interested to read how cool it now is to smoke, and the best places to indulge and make the all-important style statement at the same time.

I look forward to an article on the coolest coughs, hippest hospitals, and wickedest wards. Smoking is a noxious, vile affliction on the rest of us, imposed by a selfish minority that shouts the loudest. I suppose that makes it the perfect metaphor for the dying days of this government.
