    I retweeted S.C.'s response to that.. He's doing our work for us.. just by commenting on this stuff, he's showing how ridiculous his point of view is

    Update ....................

    Ms Jones said: "I think it is perhaps premature for Derby FC to be doing this - the best thing for people to do is to stop smoking altogether and to stop using nicotine."

    She added: "There is growing evidence that young people are using these products and the last thing we want to do is start promoting smoking to young people.

    "Sporting clubs and places associated with health should look very carefully at their sponsorship deals," she said.

    Too bad the spokesman from ASH went unnamed because he shot himself in the foot.

    Speaking tonight a spokesman for anti-smoking charity ASH said it was worried such deals could encourage children to take up e-cigarettes, but as yet there little evidence to suggest this would happen.

    He said: "One of the reasons we support e-cigarettes regulation is that it will ban marketing aimed at children but allow marketing aimed at adults.

    "So far around 900,000 smokers and 400,000 ex-smokers are currently using these products and there is no evidence of anyone who hasn't already been a smoker taking up e-cigarettes.

    "But we need to keep an eye on how the market develops."
