England no-smoking law

As of 1st July, the no-smoking ban was introduced in England meaning that it is illegal to smoke in all public “enclosed” spaces. This is one of the best pieces of legislation brought in by the government.

However, whilst I support this law (as a non-smoker), there is a fundamental flaw in the policy. What I now find is that all the people who were smoking in enclosed places now have to stand outside to smoke. Therefore, in order to get into most building, you have to walk through a wall of smoke on the way in and on the way out.

Surely, there must be a better approach!
