But you happily lived with them here? So what is different in the UK?

I get BB's point about different risk profile when kids/ family are around. But that aside, the risk of the sofa and the fag hasn't change. I still don't smoke.

I can imagine there are millions of UK houses with 20 year old sofas all waiting to kill their owners.
I was just adding a more imaginative scenario to BB's - which I think was used in adverts when Fire Regs. for upholstery were originally introduced. You have to pay to have non-compliant furniture taken away in UK. You are not allowed to sell - I think.
