OK guys lets roll one up........

The Rolling Stones flouted England's new smoking ban when two band members lit up on stage at London's O2 arena.

But the venue will not be fined after Greenwich Council said it was "satisfied" the incident was a one-off.

Guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood both smoked cigarettes during the first of the band's three gigs at the former Millennium Dome.

The maximum fine for a venue that allows people to break the ban, which came into force on 1 July, is 2,500.

Didn't they have 41 trucks rolling into London in the early hours the other week when they were playing at the O2? This must cost a hell of a lot and surely they must time it so they don't effect traffic?

Can't quite correlate the relevance of that to the opening comment, except that the legality and public health hazard of Ron and Keef lighting up is but a spit in the ocean compared to the pollution, carcinogens and carbon footprint created by the effort required to get them there in the first place.

Would have thought that 2 people smoking a cigarette each in the 02 dome was totally irrelevant to a polution of the audiences atmosphere/environment, however, they still broke the law Wink
