Battle of the Brands

Capacity was 120 and that's exactly how many guests attended last night's Battle of the Brands event at the Churchill War Rooms in Westminster.

Hosted by Forest and the Tobacco Retailers Alliance, the aim was to mark the introduction of plain packaging of tobacco from Friday May 20 and warn consumers of other products (alcohol, sugary drinks and convenience food) what the future may hold for them.

The health warnings on our bottles of wine were particularly well received. We also showed the short film we filmed in London last week. I'll post it here tomorrow.

Govt has flip flopped on academy schools, flip flopped on junior doctors contracts, flip flopped on other issues in its manifesto - but hey ho, it can pretend it is a strong Govt by beating up an easy target like smokers and removing their consumer rights
