    has anyone seen that new ad (UK) that tries to get you to grass up cig suppliers. maybe if they didnt cost nearly 5 ($7-8) we wouldnt use them, and do you really think that youre indirectly beating someone up?

    This money should be used for services including the National Health Service, Education, Roads etc. Do people think that it is morally acceptable to buy "cheap" cigarettes and tobacco at markets and car boot sales.
    I have no morals when it comes to getting things cheap (like cigarettes) or for free (like the music I download). Sorry.

    Maybe if cigarettes weren't taxed to extortionate levels. Here, most of the illegal cigarette trade is based on duty-free cigarettes which were bought legally from various European outlets.

    There are also non-regulated forgeries available which I think are the greatest danger to the general public. Who knows what kind of chemicals they've shoved in there.

    What sucks about the duty on cigarettes in the UK is the huge amounts paid under the guise of "its for your own good".
    Crap! Its just another way for the goverment to rape our pockets.

    Don&#39;t apologise, the Chancellor will just take the money from elsewhere.

    If people want to line the pockets of criminals involved in serious and organised crime, then it is a free country.

    As long as they are getting their cigarettes cheaper, that&#39;s the important thing. [/b][/quote]
    It would be interesting to know how much traffic in illegal cigarettes is REALLY controlled by "organised crime," my own experience in getting cheap fags/booze has been pubs and local shops making a bit extra on the side do their own runs abroad...I certainly wouldn&#39;t obtain anything from someone I didn&#39;t trust.

    And perhaps the chancellor could take the money from, say, those that can truly afford like the rich or big businesses...just an idea.


    edit: hehe I seem to have contradicted myself on my "no morals" statement change that to "low morals"
