Good Man!

THE owner of a Burnley takeaway has been fined after he was found running an illegal ‘shisha’ bar in a back room.




Nabeel Ahmed was prosecuted after council officers caught several men smoking shisha pipes at his Chicken Junction business in Royle Road, near Burnley’s UCLan campus.
Enforcement officers* from Burnley Council visited the premises in March after complaints were received by the council that smoking was being permitted within the premises.
The officers also found a number of booths, a bar area and other smoking paraphernalia on display.
Despite warnings, when enforcement officers and police carried out a further visit customers were found smoking from pipes supplied by staff at the premises.
Ahmed, 31, of Wilton Close, Blackburn, was fined £1,200 for failing to stop persons smoking in his premises and £500 for failure to display ‘No smoking’ signs.
Good man. I applaud anyone who choses to ignore this ridiculus legislation. The trouble is, I only ever find out about smoking bars when I read in the paper that they have been busted. One day I'll discover one that I can actually use. (Preferably one that serves booze though).

A council spokesman said: “Mr Ahmed chose to ignore warnings from council officers that the smoking of Shisha pipes on his premises was illegal under the smoke free legislation, hence this prosecution.
Illegal for consenting adults to get together and have a smoke. That is still beyond me, even after three years of it.
“Our message to all premises which ignore this legislation is that you will be liable to prosecution and as in this case may face a hefty fine.”
My message to premesis that ignore this legislation is, good on you. And can I come?
I also have a message for "Enforcement Officers". Fuck the fuck off!. Can you not see that what you are doing is wrong in so many ways?
