Can we smoke Simon...inside somewhere?

Interestingly I passed a poster outside Bournemouth railway station today encouraging people to register support for the plain packaging proposals.

My question - are taxpayers funding this stuff? I am not a smoker, but it would appear Government is already trying to stack the deck against you guys, and they're hosing scarce taxpayers money to do it as well.

Returning back to this page Simon, it seems clear to me that your campaigns to prevent the continual removal of smokers rights are doomed to failure, judging by the numbers of comments your site gets on these issues.

We live in a country with (probably) over 10 million smokers, and in an age where internet and mobile technology are prevalent, and yet the sheer apathy exhibited in the face of Government funded anti smoking campaigns bears disbelief.

If the mass of smokers out there are unwilling to mobilise themselves start making thier opposition clear, then they will have no one to blame but themselves when ASH and thier ilk go on to claim the big prize.
