Plain packaging to be rammed through Australian senate following limited debate

Not my words.

British Heart Foundation gleefully informs us that the Bill has been passed and that plain packaging is on the way. Why isn't the British Government following this example?

The EU has already been warned that legal action will follow any attempt to bring the legislation into Europe.

Success for tobacco companies is not unprecedented. This link tells of a Cincinnati court blocking a requirement to add graphic images to cigarette packs because the judge felt that tobacco companies had a high chance of success in challenging the requirement.

This is going to cost the Australian Government BILLIONS in court costs and related expenses and will save how many lives?

Oh that's right, none.
