Alfonso Pecoraro Scanio is the head of the Green Party in France. He hopes that the proposed ban on smoking in that country will not be applied in “too restrictive” a manner, according to the New York Times. He’s worried because he’s a smoker. Did I mention he’s the leader of the ecology friendly, clean-air voting Green Party?
It’s not that smoking is an unacceptable sin or that each party member, or leader for that matter, must be free from any stains of their character but it still struck me as ironic.
