I see that Nanny's war against fags continues unabated.
Rather ironic, given that Nanny makes so much money out of fag taxes and that people's health is worse affected by pollution from cars and planes etc.
Anyhoo, dismissing those "annoying" little facts, Nanny has decided that the current design of fag packets is just too sexy. In her view they encourage people to smoke.
Please, who is she trying to kid?
Who can seriously say that a fag packet looks sexy, or enticing?
Who on the planet has really been tempted to smoke, simply because of a fag packet?
Nanny's proposed solution is to have all fag packets made from brown paper, no logos or anything.
Here's why this idea is bollocks:
1 No one gives a fark about the design of fag packets, least of all the hardened smoker.
2 There will be a new market created in fag cases and fag packet covers (much like mobile phone covers).
3 Counterfeiters will rejoice, and Nanny's tax take will be reduced accordingly.
A totally daft idea!
