    Default EP TPD vote tomorrow: BT laughing all the way to hell and back.

    European Parliament will cast its vote on the new Tobacco Products Directive tomorrow. And whatever the outcome of the vote, champagne will flow freely in the headquarters of Big Tobacco.

    If EP votes "NO", then e-cigs will be saved (for now) but BT will not have to put up with stricter regulation with regards to oldfashioned tobacco products. WIN for BT.

    If EP votes "YES", then BT will have to deal with more strict regulation on oldfashioned tobacco products, but e-cigs as we know them (BT's greatest foe) will be banned and the remainder will be thrown right into the lap of BT. WIN for BT.

    Well played... Well played...

    IMO we have as much if not more to fear from B.P. as B.T. at least B.T. has some financial interests like all the Ecig companies they are buying up.
    Poor impoverished B.P. awhhh! stands to lose on all fronts,loss of NRT products ,loss of revenue from smoking related diseases.....Oh dear my heart just bleeds for them...(not)

    Edited to add:
    And they wont just lie down & take it,they will do whatever they deem necessary, to secure their investment,as Rolygate pointed out in his great post.
    (grrr can't find it now)
    I agree it's sickening to see it handed on a silver plate,& how long before our e liquid ends up as doctored as were their originals

    It takes place tomorrow, 2/26/14.... allegedly.

    I say that because of what I just read here:

    http://dickpuddlecote.blogspot.co.uk...-away-now.html

    Apparently someone has a time machine and has already visited 2/26/14 to discover the result of the vote.
