Let me steal from this brilliant piece by Jim Schembri, on public transport, and say:
"not fly-off-the-handle angry. This is focused, laser-guided angry - we are reasonable people pushed to that point of sheer exasperation which only the inefficiencies of our wretched, run-down, asinine, political system can push us."
Now it looks like our friends in Brussels have their overly litigious eyes on our doorways and expect those of us, who at the end of a hard day defending the innocent (or, indeed, the guilty) will have to go even further afield [for a fag].
Soon enough, we will have to stand in the middle of the street with a sign saying 'I will stub this fag out on my face if a non-smoker comes anywhere near me' hung around our necks.
As if that wasn't enough, on cue, RS's Google ads at the top of his sidebar launched into this:

They're seriously advertising technology to help you turn in a work colleague or friend for something he or she dearly needs at that point in time? What the f--k is this world coming to? Honestly!

UPDATE: Mutleythedog has just inspired me:

TAKE UP SMOKING - ITS COOL AND MAKES YOU LOOK MANLY*!
I DEMAND MY RIGHT TO COUGH AND SPLUTTER TO AN EARLY GRAVE!
Now come on over and arrest me! Illegal, my a-se, you non-comps!
