Its been a while since I have had much positive to say about Tony Abbott and the Coalition but, if this report is correct, they will do the right thing and support moves to introduce plain packaging of the product that is the leading preventable cause of death in the world today – cigarettes.
The lunar right should follow the lead of their betters. It creates a near total loss of credibility to support the carcinogen producers and that – no matter how one dresses things up – is what the mad right are doing. Smoking cigarettes was a terrible historical mistake that killed 100 million during the 20th century and will kill many more than that over the coming century. (158)
