Politicians, egos and the Golden Globes Awards
Will politicians never learn? While it is not illegal to use an electronic cigarette in public in California, a number of US senators contacted the Golden Globes Awards, TV companies and the Hollywood Press Association to complain about images showing Leonardo DiCaprio and others using electronic cigarettes at the recent awards giving ceremony.

Due to the massive ego of some politicians it seems that the opportunity to get their names in the press was too much although inadvertently they have given the electronic cigarette industry a massive burst of worldwide publicity which nobody expected.

RE: Politicians, egos and the Golden Globes Awards
ROFL Big Grin

One thing has become abundantly clear since the e-cig fiasco started rattling their cages.... these politicians and policy makers have always seemed to look like they know what they're doing with a clear and sensible head on their shoulders. We always though that our best interests were at heart and that they would look out for us and save us from adversity.


It is now clear that when backed into a corner with nobody capable of taking their hand and leading them to safety, that these people will spout all manners of ludicrous, idiotic, naive, arrogant, nonsense and propaganda.

The funniest part of it all though, and the thing that really does tickle me pink is that with every single word, we can see right through the lies, and all they're doing is digging their own political graves deeper and deeper to the extent where they'll lose every single shred of credibility and every single shred of any public support they ever had.

In some ways I feel sorry for them because they genuinely don't realise that by being associatively Pro-Harm all they're doing is harming themselves. I see the politicians who are bright enough to see the bigger picture are already standing on the correct side of the fence.

In many ways ecigs are splitting politicians down the middle - old school and new world. It will be interesting to see how much more noise the politicians make as this is actually highlighting the ecig industry and a natural comparison against tobacco cigarettes.

I think the politicians in the US are riding the wave of new laws in the EU community.  Now that the EU commissions are drowning in the mire of sewage they created for themselves filled with misrepresentation of the data they used along with outright lies, they have been proven to be big pharma shills and not remotely in the best interest of the people they were elected to SERVE.  Since this I think a lot of the creeps in the US politico are stunned and will soon be leaping off the bandwagon at least for a little while.  One thing through all of this is that politicians are the lowest of all scum.  They make lawyers and used car salesmen look good.

Problem is that the European Parliament (Who are elected) have been slightly sane about this. The European Commission (Which is not elected, it's a Civil Service) keeps coming up with new bad ideas which it expects the Parlaiment to rubber-stamp.

Bit like the current perception of the NSA in most of the world.

RE: Politicians, egos and the Golden Globes Awards
All we ask for, the industry and users, is a level playing field, no lies, no rumours, no scaremongering, just let the facts, the medical trials and customers speak for themselves. Sadly we are in a world where money talks to governments and decisions are very often influenced by the "whats in it for us" authorities.

Why does everything we enjoy need to be taxed, taxed and taxed again. I guarantee if they bring in a lesser tax for ecigs, compared to tobacco, this will be the thin end of the wedge allowing authorities to increase an ecig tax year after year. Look at the congestion charge in London, that is being increased way above inflation and as many people have no choice but to pay it, governments are guaranteed growing income streams.
