    Worth noting that some of the institutions mentioned in the article are funded by tobacco excise and taxes.

    Tobacco Control is in the driver's seat, and don't ever pretend otherwise.

    Yes, I understand your point and agree, but it is worth noting that every quit tobacco group in Australia receives funding from excises and tax raised from the sale of tobacco. They wouldnt exist without it.
    On the boards of some of these orgs are politicians and people with direct or past interest in tobacco companies, and dont ever pretend otherwise.

    It's just plain ridiculous to pretend they're protecting the tobacco companies, because if they actually wished to do so, there wouldn't be a peep out of them, and there wouldn't be new laws to persecute tobacco users and ratcheting up the existing ones.

    What are you going on about?
    Im simply stating that quit groups receive funding from the sale of tobacco products. Sitting on the boards of some of these organization there has been over the years people directly and indirectly involved with tobacco companies.
    It is part of these organizations background and day to day running.

    The executive officers are responsible for day to day operations. Boards of directors meet periodically to review and supervise.
