I read this and thought......It looks kind of promising...Not sure how much 'nudging' is going on within the Government though...But it will be better than a ban thats for sure  ;D

The pessimist side of my brain just screamed "stock up, panic, stock up" again when I read that.

But...If there isn't a ban we can still order from abroad.....Whereby if there IS a ban it will much harder to get Nicotine in....I'm just guessing though...

At what cost though? It'll be like importing cigs now, duty would be due, making it just as expensive. it's a big lose all round if the govt gets involved I feel. As far as I can see the Market seems pretty well self regulated. The more the powers that be get involved the more uneasy I feel.  :'(

Hey

Well, ive got my subscription in with vapourworld today, going to stock up just in case :)

Already got about 400ml of liquid ready, and loads of cartos, should keep me safe for a while ;)

To be fair though, i think it will be a few years before anything comes of this, and even then, it might be for positive if it means everything gets tested pure and safe..... but im worried about price hikes and VAT....

Still need to make sure we don't miss the boat, whenever it is, because once taxation and regulation becomes a definite prospect the retailers will be able to all put prices up in that in-between period that is pre tax and when everybody stocks up.
