    That infograph by Demi demonstrates it well. Simon Chimpman is willing to deny people easy access to a perfectly safe substitute for tobacco smoke, just so he can path the way for stricter regulations on the more dangerous product. Calling Chimpman a danger to public health is an understatement.

    The other points made were good :

    we want regulations, but not one that would raise the barrier to entry to $2M+.

    Comparing ecigs to breathing fresh air, is like comparing a jogger to a bike rider. Both emit much lower emissions than a car.

    yep..and if he wants the type of regulation the mhra wants it opens the door for big tobacco/pharma to take over the whole industry so he is supported his much hated tobacco industry.

    ha ! i feel sorry for him in a way..e-cigs fk with his paradigm, he seems to be confused about it all and is falling back on the 'nicotine is bad' track so he can keep running the party line.

    This Simon Chapman character always reminds me of Michael Atkinson and his battle against an R18 rating for computer games:

    R18 Games Australia, He actually said that..... - YouTube

    Slowly but surely, Chapman is looking sillier and sillier. I'm confident that common sense and logic will always beat these clowns.
