Time Out London Poll Q of Week - Help!

UK folks: please advisse me how to vote on Time Out London's question de semaine:

Readers' poll Next week we want to know: with the smoking ban about to begin, what should be banned from pubs next?
A) Lager tops
B) Darts
C) Braised lamb shanks

i'm leaning towards B as perhaps they're dangerous in hands of 'pissed' Brits?

which way should i vote?

I don't think I've ever seen a braised lamb shank. Not in a pub. Not on a footballer's wife. Not anywhere. Methinks the question-setter has "issues".

PalenQ, are you from the UK?

Ever read Robert Rankin and the Antipope Trilogy (or is it the Sprout Trilogy)? If darts were not played in Pubs...the world would not be as we know it.

I vote for lamb shanks. I ordered them last night at a local eaterly.
That weren't no lamb...that was a grizzly old EWE.

My TO subscription has run out so I didn't get to see this.

I'm quite fond of lamb shanks (hoping that's a reference to the proliferation of gastro pubs and not some appalling rhyming slang!), so it'd have to be a) or b) for me.

'Overheard on the Underground' and 'Lies to tell tourists' are my favourite bits usually.
