Hands off our packs, say those that know

Like shopkeepers and the police. And others. Many outside government believe that plain packaging guarantees nothing but increased trafficking of illegal cigarettes: whether traded illegally or actually counterfeit.

Don't forget the public consultation, open till 10 July. A quick preview of the questions can be seen here.

Edit: deadline extended to 10 August.

I have no doubt that you are aware that Malevolent Milton has extended the consultation for another month. Her reason seems to be, "To give people more time to make their views known" By that reasoning, why not extend the period for another ten years?

Alternatively, she could try telling us the real reason.
