Yes folks, I'm trying a new electronic cigarette. It looks like a cigarette, it tastes like a cigarette and it drags like a cigarette, get one! The only bone I would pick with the manufacturers is that they are claiming it could be used as a quit smoking aid. I'm not convinced, but it certainly works as means of irritating antis. It produces enough water vapour to make it look like you are breaking the law, but you are not smoking tobacco! I'm already producing coughs in perfectly well strangers and that's real fun. I'm looking forward to "lighting up" on the aeroplane and my local hotel is going to see me eating in for the first time in ages.
They only make a realistic cigar and pipe as well and the cartridges with the nicotine in come in a host of different flavours and strengths for the tobacco flavours. Naturally I'm on the strong ones!
Take a trip to the web site and see how much money you could save if you did reduce your real fag intake with this device. Better still buy it and get your own back!

Simon Clark blogs on the shameful suspension by Talksport of Jon Gaunt for standing up to a Nazi Bigot. Some of my views are covered here with a reproduction of my comments:
I am a long time observer of the different views held by the pro-choice organisations. In summary, I believe it would be fare to say that Simon, on behalf of Forest has always advocated discretion in language and presentation and that others have expressed concern that the anti's need less respect, indeed more contempt.
This is a classic example of how a display of contempt can only do our cause good. With respect to Simon, I fully appreciate his argument, Jon Gaunt has, as a result of his passionate expression of his beliefs achieved excellent press at some personal risk. I applaud him for this stand and fully endorse Simon's stand on his behalf.
Unfortunately, Gaunty was not so outspoken when it came to the smoking ban introduction. His Sun column was quite derisory towards the plight of smokers at this time. He did come across, on that occasion, as an anti-smoker. He did not appreciate how the power hungry anti-smoking movement would invade his own area of comfort. To this, I say "told you so Gaunty!" with some relish.
Could we please note, how important it is to join forces, and to stop pussy-footing around these NAZI zealots. We need passion like Gaunt to get noticed.
