    *Thought for the day - when two organizations fight for the right to claim the word 'fact' - where does that leave the individual who may have a different but also well backed up, valid view? How do you decide who is absolutely right and who is absolutely wrong?

    "Oh, you canít help that," said the Cat: "weíre all mad here. Iím mad. Youíre mad."
    "How do you know Iím mad?" said Alice.

    Just looking at the Tax link......

    so it's not about helping us quit, it's about their income stream

    The commission said it was an attempt to offset "long-term budgetary implications for member states" due to the reduced rates of smoking. The council also cited the need to harmonise the rules to "reduce legal uncertainty… [and] hamper substitution by borderline products".
    It all comes back to the $$$

    They really dont want you to quit. They want you to pay taxes.

    I have emailed - but think that the whole Vince thing is mostly the exclusive domain now of an Australian 'advocacy' group who prefer not to post here (Just going on what happened the last time there was news of him )

    If I hear anything will post asap unless someone is kind enough to do it instead of me

    Until then its all wait and see i am guessing
