Smokers more than pay their way don't they?

Apparently, the Government has a new strategy to halve the number of smokers, from 21 to 10 per cent of the population by 2020. This is, they say, to reduce the strain on the NHS because it cost £2.7bn to treat smokers. That's the smokers who contribute £10bn a year in taxes to the Government in case you were wondering.

I'd say smokers are more than covering the costs of their treatment.
