Check out our new online ad campaign.

It's being promoted by the MessageSpace network that includes Guido Fawkes and numerous other blogs across the political spectrum.

There's a second second loop ad plus a banner ad that enlarges (see above) when the cursor passes over it.

Problem is with the so-called "plain packaging" deal that the Government is trying to force onto us, is that if successful, the cigarette packs will be anything but "plain". They will be covered in hideous and obviously doctored pictures of diseased gums, hearts and lungs.

If this gets the go-ahead what will be next? - Will we have pictures of alcoholics and down and out on beer cans? Will we have pictures of babies with their mouths full of exhaust fumes on petrol pumps? Or maybe a picture of the elephant man on cake and sweet wrappings?

If we can't even get the Government to tell the truth on so called "plain packaging" then why the hell should we believe them on anything else they say?

p.s. and I am a very despondent Conservative!

... and you advised us all to vote for Conservatives!!

However, it did seem the best option at the time although, if I remember, Cameron had already made it clear that he wouldn't be taking up the cause - "we have moved on.." was the comment.

A curse on all their houses!

Let's face it Freedom, who else did we have to vote for?

We knew for certain that Labour wouldn't do anything about it as it was them who brought the damn thing in.

Lib Dems - well I don't even think they are worth mentioning in this context.

That leaves the Conservatives who have always been the party of free choice - I know they didn't promise to amend it but I did think that they were our best bet - which, to be completely honest, they still are!

Once we can get the manacles from off them!

Conservatives didn't vote for New Labour's social engineering and signing away of powers without asking anyone, so presumably considered ourselves not in anyway responsible for the predictable carnage that ensued.

Now, I would guess that the equally angry and disappointed conservatives have lost any slight sense of detachment we might once have had.

I expect that a lot of Lib Dems have had a nasty shock too, for a variety of reasons.

Looking on the plus side, the once tolerant and trusting British public have endured a 13 year crash course in the art of political spin.
With a much sharper populace the blighters shouldn't get away with it quite so easily this time.

That's just my personal view of course.
