Lovely fags...

'Castaway' hopes to quit smoking

A businessman who has smoked 30-a-day for decades is to maroon himself on a remote Scottish island in an effort to quit the habit.

Former merchant banker Geoff Spice is due to land on the small isle of Sgarabhaigh, off Harris in the Outer Hebrides, over the weekend.

Mr Spice, 56, will spend four weeks in solitude with only some books and the island's sheep for company.

It is thought that by the second week Mr Spice will be experimenting with sheep's wool wrapped in book leaves and by week three anyone passing close to shore in a small boat with 20 Marlboro will be able to name their own price...
