Plain packs in the land of the leprechauns.

Live from comes an article gloating about the introduction of plain packaging on tobacco products in Eire.

AHEAD OF WORLD No Tobacco Day on Friday, the Minister for Health James Reilly has announced that Ireland is to become the second country in the world to introduce plain packets of cigarettes, after Australia.

(No Tobacco day. Memo to self: Buy extra on Friday).

Minister Reilly said he was “confident that this legislation will be justified and supported purely by the fact that it will save lives”.

And of course there is a poll. And we all love polls don’t we? The results so far are nicely condemning of the whole hateful idea. Do follow the link and see if you can up the no vote.

Poll: Do you welcome the introduction of plain pack cigarettes?



  1. I think a survey would reveal that plain-packaging fans also want to ban page 3, cream teas and the working class, being anorexic feminists and Guardian-reading impotents to a person.

  2. Today is world no tobacco day. You don’t see a ‘world start smoking day’.

    I wonder why that is?
