A PUB landlord who was jailed for defying the smoking ban says he was allowed to light up in his cell.
Nick Hogan, 43, claims he was even given tobacco, cigarette papers and matches by prison officers.
He got six months after refusing to pay fines for flouting the 2007 ban.
And he was stunned to be given cigs by staff at Forest Bank jail, Manchester.
Interesting country really. You can smoke in a jail cell but not in a pub.
Heck, you can smoke in the jail cell to which you are sentenced for allowing people to smoke in a pub.
There’s just some nagging little voice at the back of my head insisting that this isn’t quite right, you know?
