    Hi, all,

    Once again, sorry for spamming this, but despite the fact that I've put it just about everywhere, very few seem to have seen it.

    We met with the legal team on Thursday to discuss our options in the face of the EU proposal, and the imminent MHRA position statement. (We anticipate that the MHRA will announce on the 13th March, rather than waiting until May, because they like to roll the drum on No Smoking Day.)

    We discussed all the issues for both UK and EU level. The legal experts reckon we have a strong case, particularly with regard to proportionality, and we shall be getting an official Opinion from a QC in the next couple of weeks. They described the proposed Directive as possibly being 'legally flawed' in several respects, which means we have a good chance of mounting a successful legal challenge.

    We shall continue to fire on all cylinders, and will be asking for your help in getting the right messages to the right people in each of your constituencies in the coming weeks. I hope we can count on your support as we all join together for this crucial fight.

    This is not an industry fighting for its survival in isolation; this is a fight for every single one of us who has discovered vaping - and it is a fight for our lives. We hope you will join us as we take the fight to them, rather than waiting for them to attack us even further.

    Sincere thanks to Elites, not only for providing outstanding Chairmanship of ECITA since its inception in the form of Mike Ryan, but also for providing access to a top notch legal team, with the expertise and skills to bring us ALL safely home - as an industry and as a community of vapers.

    We shall keep you informed as things progress, and would be grateful if a moderator could sticky this thread.

    ...and then...

    OK, as promised the handout is up and ready for download. I know it's a bit cheeky, but if everyone here printed it out and hand delivered it to each of their MPs and MEPs, maybe, just maybe we can make a difference? Obviously, if you don't agree with anything it says, then don't, but if you DO agree, and want to protect YOUR right to vape, then please get this out there! http://ecita.org.uk/a4%202%20sided%20han...202013.pdf

    Also, if you supply into local shops in your area, or know the people in there, maybe you could encourage those outlets to display the information with the products? Anything we can do to get the message out there can only help.

    Thank you all for your support!

    Happy and very long-lived vaping, one and all!

    Cheers,

    Katherine

    Katherine,

    Maybe you could change the filename to this, please? :-

    a4-2sided-handout-feb2013.pdf


    (There are 4 rules for naming webdocs, as follows)

    1. Don't use upper case letters
    2. Don't leave any spaces
    3. Fill any unavoidable spaces with a dash/hyphen
    4. Never use an underscore (like_this)

    If you follow these rules, you'll get the best results. If you don't, there are always going to be issues, often some you won't know about.


    Beryl - this is the link (!):

    Thanks, it's printing now. I want to send it to Petaluma among other places.

    Rolygate, can you please PM me? I want to give you my EU-centric 2-panel cartoon. It's about snus but the logic is the same as for ecigs.

    Well, I've signed the petition and emailed my mp. It is to be hoped that the forces of idiocy do not prevail. Adult people sometomes make adult choices - and vaping as opposed to burning tobacco is a very grown-up decision imho.
