Ten-packs of fags being banned


#1

Baccy under 30g as well.

Good or bad idea?

As a casual smoker it’s probably good for me as i’ll never buy a twenty deck.

On the other hand, something, something, taxing the poor, vulnerable people, something, something. Surely even more people will just buy knock-offs?

Shoot…


#2

Good idea, I’d have never been able to afford fegs if they were that price.


#3

bang

Good thing my gun uses blanks otherwise I’d have shot you dead before big tobacco ever could.


#4

think it’s really stupid. if you want to ban cigarettes then ban them, otherwise let folk have at them.


#5

yeah I’m all for it, doubt it will put people off though if pictures of people with mutations dont


#6

idk, I haven’t read the relevant literature


#7

This will either mean I never smoke again or will be hooked for good the next time I fall off the wagon. Seems high stakes.

I’m probably acceptable collateral damage if it stops kids ever starting tho

#9

Aaaaaaa shut up


#10

Just that thing where parents catch their kids smoking so make them smoke loads and loads on the bounce to try to put them off it but on a larger scale really isn’t it? Government’s being an aggro dad.


#11

I usually buy 10’s
Guess I’ll start buying 20’s


#12

I’m really going to miss asking for a pack of 20 and only getting 16 or sutin inside!


#13

Ah good, shops will have stop stocking the nuisance sizes


#14

How much are ten fags these days? I want to be astounded cause they were about 90p when I started smoking


#15

Approx £5.00 for premium brands
Approx £4.60 for cheaper ones


#16

Good grief!


#17

Can you still buy Royals (?) used to do a packet of 25, two of them and you can make up a 10 plus two x 20s and stick it to the man. Empty boxes required so you’ll need to buy 2x 20 and a 10 and smoke them beforehand.


#18

It was 24 i believe


#19

Shit…need to redo the maths.


#20

Fuck sake. Hate these bullshit gestures towards tobacco. You love the revenue, we love the fags, so let us do it how we want.
