Plain Packed Cigarettes and the flight from Freedom



 Michael Dwyer 

Just a very quick observation. As you may know the Irish government is being sued by a tobacco company over its plans to bring in plain packaging for cigarettes in Ireland.

Again and again in the media I hear and read the phrase Big Tobacco. We are informed portentously that the company in question has a market capitalisation of fifty five billion euro. Clearly this is a behemoth with unimaginable powers and must be combated.

Just once in discussions like this I would like to hear a journalist or presenter refer to Big State. But that maybe a dream too far.plain packs plain stupid
