Ahead of new week's vote by MPs on plain packaging the Sun has a major story about the policy potentially driving illicit trade in Northern Ireland.
The full report is behind a pay wall but here's a taste:
IRA kingpins stand to make millions from new plain tobacco packaging laws after building a secret network of illegal cigarette factories.
The terrorists are switching from importing fake fags to raw tobacco so they can produce their own product and massively increase their profit margins.
According to the Sun profits will 'soar from 90 million euro (£65 million) to 120 million euro (£87.5 million) within two years thanks to plain packaging'.
Following a recent raid on an illicit factory 'Two million cigarettes and £50,000 in cash were … seized':
Investigators believe the IRA has at least three more [factories] up and running and another four being built near Dundalk, Co Louth.
Bosses can employ the skills of former workers at a Rothmans factory that closed there in 2008.
But here's the killer quote. According to a 'senior customs source':
"Plain packaging is not the solution, it's becoming the problem. It's a gift beyond imagination.
"Nothing moves across the border without the IRA taking a cut. This is putting tens of millions of pounds into the Real IRA's coffers.
"The politicians have created a nightmare scenario."
Emphasising the importance of the report the Sun even has a leader on the subject:
One certain outcome of the plain cigarette packaging experiment is that it'll be a gift for criminals.
But our investigation today reveals that IRA gangsters will be some of the biggest winners.
They have moved from smuggling to manufacturing because knocking off counterfeit packs will be a doodle.
That means even more profit from the two-fifths of illegal cigarettes thought to come from IRA criminals.
It's an unintended consequence of well-meaning health policy.

The question is, do our politicians care?
