WTF! Nanny state comes up with "smoking police!!!"

Smokers will be stopped in the street and asked to take a carbon monoxide test in London's most hard-hitting anti-smoking campaign. 

'Smoking police' will target people at betting shops, bus stops and shopping centres to shock them into giving up cigarettes. 

They will be asked to breathe into a monitor to show how much carbon monoxide is in their bodies, and could then be signed up to local stop-smoking services and given access to counsellors. 

Pro-smoking group Forest described the campaign as a humiliating infringement of civil liberties.
