    Hi Everyone,

    This will likely be my last update.

    After a long wait I have finally been advised by my lawyers of the costs being sought by the health department.

    They are seeking $54,000 in costs which the courts have already approved. I have 21 days to argue the costs but it is not likely to change the outcome.

    There was not enough money raised to appeal to the high court so the road will sadly end here.

    I have a few thousand left on trust with the lawyers so will have to pay that to them and then see what the prosecution wants to do about the remaining balance.

    I pray they will not foreclose on my home but only time will tell as it is entirely within their discretion.

    Thank you to everyone for all of the support over such an extended period of time, it really means the world to me.

    Though this is a terrible loss please keep advocating for ecigs. All of our actions do make a difference we can’t win every battle, but we must always fight for what is right.
    Through this journey more people have undoubtedly become aware of ecigs as a life changing alternative to tobacco and lives will have been saved, sometimes that’s all we can do, and it is worth doing – no matter the cost.

    All the best Vince

    "How do you know Iím mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldnít have come here.Ē

    Well thats just <words that will only get turned to stars>

    How could this shit happen in this country, time we threw every politican out on their arse and took back control of our own lives methinks

    To continually target a man like Vince shows what their priorities are, to crush anyone who goes against their warped ideology, and be able to feel they were right.
