Cigarette heresy — 3 Comments

  1. It is the consistent policy of this government, like its predecessors, to take most from those who can least afford it and tobacco taxes are not the only example.

  2. From all the statistics I can find, smoking rates have generally been on a constant decline worldwide. However, figures from the UK, Australia and Ireland [three of the top ‘leaders’ in tobacco control] would suggest that in each country, as legislation was introduced the decline stopped and even reversed. Coincidence?

  3. I don’t understand why some back bencher or independent TD does not point out that the Government’s policy has no clothes and simply hurts working class families.
