    Is the CIS funded by the tobacco industry?

    Pushing up the price of legal cigarettes does work – in destroying demand for the legal product. Expect ever diminishing tobacco revenues as tariffs and duties become ever more extreme. That demand will shift to an illegal, duty-free source of tobacco.

    As anyone can see, it has already done that.

    I once owned a book by Roger Douglas one of the first things he did was tour many government depots in NZ. One story he told was of a railway warehouse in the South Island were the rail line were torn up twenty years previous. He asked the employees what they were doing, the reply was restocking and disposing of parts that had reached their use by date. But why he asked, the answer of course was nobody told us to stop. He sold off the Gov. railways because of this and many other similar problems and it’s privately owned now. Roger was a Labor politician at the time.

    No. But Government is addicted to tobacco and alcohol revenue
