The smoking ban in UK pubs has been such a success that the government now intend to extend it to include drinkers.

The Department Of Health say that since the ban was introduced in 2006 and 2007, thousands of lives have been saved.

"What the British public don't understand is that alcohol is just as dangerous as smoking, if not more so." said spokesperson Gloria Twat.

With this in mind as of July 2012, all alcoholic beverages purchased on licensed premises will have to be consumed off the premises in the smoking area. The smoking area will be renamed the smoking and drinking area.

"This decision has not been made purely to save lives," added Ms Twat. "We also want to save the traditional British boozer. For far too long now hundreds of pubs have been shutting down every week. We intend to reverse this trend by making pubs more family friendly. Children do not want to be surrounded by drunken people, swearing and farting, while they play on their bouncy castles or in their ball pools."

Mr Brian Poole Table, Chairman of the Licensed Victuallers Association said, "It's enough to drive you to drink."
