According to the amendments, owners of bars and restaurants with an area of up to 100 sq m would be able to determine for themselves whether their premises should be non-smoking areas or not.
Owners of facilities with an area of more than 100 sq m will have to provide sections for non-smokers that have no direct link to the smokers' areas, according to the amendments.
And oh what a telling criticism:
News of the amendments, however, was criticised by one of the right-wing parties in Parliament, the Democrats for a Strong Bulgaria. The party's leader Ivan Kostov said that the amendments were "not a European thing to do".
No, indeed. How dare anyone challenge the demands of Eurocrats for a homogenous, sterile, bland continent.
Ivan Kostov: feel free to go fuck yourself with a Nicorette patch, you bansturbating cock-munch.
