As I reported last week, the vote by MEPs on the Tobacco Products Directive has been postponed by a month. The vote will now take place in Strasbourg on October 8.

Consequently the battle to convince MEPs to reject the more extreme proposals – bans on menthol cigarettes and smaller pouches of roll-your-own tobacco, even larger health warnings etc – continues.

Last week Forest placed an advertisement (right), with a link to the No Thank EU campaign website, on the Guido Fawkes blog.

We also placed an animated banner ad on a number of other political blogs including The Spectator and Conservative Home which read 'PROHIBITION? NO THANK EU!'

In addition we placed a four-page cover wrap (below) on The House magazine which is sent to every MP, peer and MEP.

If I say so myself, it looks brilliant!

If you support the No Thank EU campaign but have not yet signed up please do it now.

The site allows you to send a letter direct to your elected representatives in Westminster and Brussels.

It's quick and easy and should take no more than a minute of your time. Click here.
