ASH once again are busy throwing vapers under a bus, desperate to protect the anti-smoker parts of the new legislation. They are downplaying the effect that the restrictions on e-cigarettes will have on the viability of vaping as an alternative to smoking. Their recent press release http://www.ash.org.uk/media-room/pr...cotine-strength-not-a-problem-for-most-vapers emphasised that ‘only’ 9% of the vaping population would be affected by the restrictions on e-liquid strength, calmly ignoring the fact that this translated to 252,000 individuals, many of whom are people just in the process of switching to vaping. ASH are also completely ignoring current and future smokers who may choose to switch.

Unfortunately Labour are listening to ASH. We need to convince them that vapers aren’t happy that they are supporting regulations which will result in an estimated 105,000 additional deaths every year across Europe http://londoneconomics.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/High_nicotine_e-cigs_ban-Feb14.pdf

This is why we are asking the vape community to write and tweet to Labour MP’s, Shadow Health Team, Labour Lords and a few other key decision makers to tell them your story, talk about how you switched and ask them to support Lord Callanan's motion.

All the instructions, links and tips you need are in the blog: Labour Pains – Last push for #LordsVapeVote

but here is a quick run down of the essentials:

ViP’s post with info for writing to the lords: #LordsVapeVote Writing Campaign

The spreadsheet has been updated. The important targets are now at the top of the list and highlighted in red.

You may also wish to contact Jeremy Corbyn himself: corbynj@parliament.uk. In June 2014 Corbyn signed an Early Day Motion in support of e-cigarettes and regretting the direction the European Legislation had taken. Early day motion 6 - ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES You might want to remind him of that.
