The Empire Strikes Back - Imperial Tobacco Circumvents Nanny

Kudos to the good people of Imperial Tobacco who have come up with a way of circumventing Australian Nanny's health warnings on fag packet laws.

The solution?

Packs of 20 Peter Stuyvesant cigarettes - manufactured by Imperial - are being sold with a lift out soft pack inside the olive boxes mandated by the Rudd/Gillard Government in 2011.

This means that fag lovers can throw away the cardboard box carrying warnings of cancer, gangrene, blindness and heart disease and instead use a shiny silver pack to carry their fags.

As per Chinchilla News a spokeswoman for Imperial denied the company was breaking the law before adding:
"we are providing a fresher, premium product to consumers."
Now here's a thought, British Nanny wants plain packaging. Why not simply insert a nicely designed colourful inner container into the dowdy Nanny pack, so that fag smokers can show their true allegiance after purchase and throw the Nanny pack away?

  1. It's a great wheeze (no pun intended).

    Dear Mr Frost

    Unless the anti-smokers are halted, it can only be a temporary solution. The health nazis have already set their sights on the colour of the cigarette paper, under the peculiar belief that certain colours put people off smoking.

    Inner sleeves are well within their mendacious grasp, since governments habitually back whatever stupidity the anti-smokers come up with.

    A solution: after Brexit comes the cull of government and its co-leeches.

      How about putting some of the anti-smoking legislators in Art Deco coffins and burying them 6 feet under?
