Forest has launched an advertising campaign to promote our No Thank EU campaign.

Full page ads have been placed in The Week (circulation 194k), Spectator (63k) and New Statesman (25k). They read:

Under a new Tobacco Products Directive the European Union could ban menthol and 'slim' cigarettes, outlaw ten packs, prohibit small pouches of roll your own tobacco, and severely restrict the shape and size of cigarette packets.


1. Have we learned nothing from history? Prohibition doesn't work.
2. Excessive regulation will deny consumers choice and drive them to the black market.
3. Criminal gangs will make a fortune manufacturing and selling prohibited products.
4. Don't let the EU impose an extreme regulatory agenda on UK consumers.
5. What will they prohibit or over-regulate next? Alcohol, fizzy drinks, convenience food? Enough is enough.

If you support choice not control, please make your voice heard. Visit NoThank.EU.com.
