RE: Is this real?
I honestly wouldn't be surprised either way. The Royal College of Physicians and Public Health England have said that ecigs are 95% safer... but the legislators don't care. So it could go either way. Would love to see this being a real thing though.

the way the pic looks suggests that the "Brand Name" of the product is "Smoking Kills"

That looks to me like a proposed pack once the ID10T plain packaging nonsense comes in either in November or May. The regulations require something like 75% of the pack surface to be covered in health warnings and medical porn. The idea is to abolish branding thus making people smoke less.

Just more business as usual from the professional liars at Public Health. Cigarette consumption went UP in Australia after their idiot plain packaging laws came in.

I don't believe that pack is actually real.

Yet.

RE: Is this real?
They have to have shutters over the kiosk by law so it's not like we can peer over the counter to see.
Next time I'm by one I'll ask for a look.. but I suspect Dons right.  
Another way for public perception to associate vaping with tobacco isn't a good thing!

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

RE: Is this real?
I see the packs being loaded into the shuttered thing at my local Co-op all the time. (They sell a lot of stinkies)
They most certainly are not yet plain packages covered in warnings and medical porn.

They aren't all yet. I have only been given up a week, and in my chosen brand sometimes I would get the new style packs where I'd get 20, or the old style packs where I'd get 19.  I think they are allowed some time to get rid of old stock first?   I don't intend to buy anymore, but I can honestly say the pack never affected my decision in anyway, as I doubt it will for most people who smoke.
