from December 2015 to January 2015
Control takes on Dutch lawmakers via the courts.
2015. Tobacco Control wants to close all smoking rooms in the
Netherlands. In turn one Dutch MP wants an end to fake
charities "which pit people against each other". [Continue.]
budget tobacco brands in the UK.
2015. Without any adverts, marketing or counter displays,
but with good demand and complacent market leaders, new
tobacco firms are competing rather well in the British
"Green" pressure group manipulates Holland.
2015. Backed by vested commercial interests and lottery funds,
886 people force their will on the remaining 16.8 million people

market tobacco. Check out the health warnings!
2015. I couldn't care less what brand you smoke, only that

to benefit charities. Fake charities included. [Continue.]

control fiddling poll results. [Continue]
Wars vs Synthetic Wars.
2015. That's the reality for most of the severely
disfigured. They shock some people because their wounds
are so awful, and they're terrified because they'd never
want to go through life looking like them. So the more
juvenile laugh, snicker, mock, taunt and belittle them.
That's something Tobacco Control exploits. They're experts
at encouraging base sentiments, hence plain packs. [Continue]
survey by fake charity CRUK vs impartial one by the IEA.
