Welcome to our web site, and thank you for taking the time to learn
more about the We Can Smoke Party.

I decided to form the party when the Government in their wisdom
decided to outlaw smoking in  private members' clubs regardless of
the wishes of the club members.

This, for me, was the straw which broke the camel's back so I decided that,
instead of moaning about the situation like so many of my counterparts, I would
try and actually do something about it.

You can obtain more detailed information
elsewhere on the site but I really just
wish to say that, once I had begun my research, I was astonished to realise how
relatively simple it would be to win a General Election if smokers could be
persuaded to turn out and vote for a party whose sole aim would be to allow
smokers to enjoy their simple pleasure.

We can debate the dangers posed by "second-hand smoke" all day and one set
of experts will argue with another.

I certainly had no problem with any establishment which banned smoking before
1/7/7. I simply did not frequent them.

I am no scientist but I do not think it equitable that Restaurateurs, Club
Managers, Pub Owners & Managers etc. who would choose to allow smoking in
their establishments are now prevented from doing so.

Non-smokers would have the CHOICE not to frequent them or work in them.

Since July 1st 2007 smokers have become second-class citizens and have NO
CHOICE.

I intend to organise
658 other candidates into an unbeatable party machine but I
cannot do it without funding.

I will work night and day in an effort to mobilise Britain's 14 million oppressed
smokers and engineer the victory which I know can change political history. All I
need is your financial support.

PLEASE SUPPORT US AND LET US GET ON WITH THE JOB!!

THANK YOU
