Every cloud has a silver lining ....

..... or how government regulation helps British enterprise thrive.

From October, although my ciggie packets will still show their iconic and fashionable French health warnings, British smokers will be faced with X-rated photographs on their packs. Or not. For about 15p a pack they can buy stickers to cover up the offensive images; those currently available are not particularly brilliant, but it strikes me there's a market for pithy libertarian slogans rather than quirky humour. Together with point-of-sale displays at newsagents and tobacconists so customers can cover the image before leaving the shop. Hmm . Time to get some quotes from the printers, I think ...
